Twelve Steps

Posted in ADDICTION tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:54 am by PCOSLady

Twelve-step methods have been adopted to address a wide range of substance-abuse and dependency problems. Over 200 self-help organizations ~ often known as fellowships ~ with a worldwide membership of millions ~ now employ twelve-step principles for recovery.
These are the original Twelve Steps as published by
Alcoholics Anonymous:
* ~ We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
* ~ Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
* ~ Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
* ~ Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
* ~ Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
* ~ Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
* ~ Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
* ~ Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
* ~ Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
* ~ Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
* ~ Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
* ~ Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
In some cases, where other twelve-step groups have adapted the AA steps as guiding principles, they have been altered to emphasize principles important to those particular fellowships, and to remove gender-biased language.

I’m Your Disease

You feel all alone with your addiction! ~  "YOU" are not alone as you may feel you are!!!! ~ Reach out for HELP!  ~  Help is out there if you ask for it...

You feel all alone with your addiction! ~ “YOU” are not alone as you may feel you are!!!! ~ Reach out for HELP! ~ Help is out there if you ask for it…

Pass this on…
Allow me to introduce myself. I am the disease of Alcohol and Drug addiction (*or any addiction). I dominate your spirit and possess your soul. Cunning, baffling and powerful, that’s me! I am your disease, and I hate your meetings, I hate your higher power, I hate your recovery programs.
To all who come in contact with me, I wish you long suffering, death and destruction. I have killed millions and will continue to kill more, and I am pleased. People don’t take me seriously. They take strokes seriously, heart attacks, even Diabetes seriously, fools that they are, they don’t know that without my help, these things would not be made possible. I love to catch you with the element of surprise. I love pretending I am your friend and lover. I have given you comfort, have I not? Wasn’t I there when you were sad, lonely, hurt and depressed? When you wanted to die, didn’t you call me?
I love to make you cry. Better yet, I love to make you so numb you can neither hurt or cry. You can’t feel anything at all. Is my true glory, I will give you instant gratification and all I ask of you is long term suffering. When things are going right in your life, you invite me in, I have been there for you always. You said that you did not deserve those good things and I was the only one who would agree with you, so I destroyed your life, your self worth, I made you turn on your family, lose your job, possessions and your freedom. Together we were able to destroy all the good things in your life.
I am such a hated disease. I am your worst nightmare but you desire my gratification. I do not come uninvited, you seek me out, you choose to have me. So many have chosen me, just look around and there are many more that you cannot see. I am very proud of my flock. I hope you never see the light of reality, I love keeping you in the illusion of darkness. I hate your 12 Step Program. I hate your meetings and your higher Power. They all weaken me and I can’t function in the manner I am accustomed to. Now I must lie here quietly. You don’t see me, but I am growing, bigger than ever. When you only exist, I live! When you live, I only exist, but I am here…And until we meet again, if we meet again…I wish you long suffering, death and destruction………
