Here are the top ten articles for the 12 Step Recovery Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Our Primary Purpose
Responsibility and purpose...two important elements to maintain sobriety. Are we willing to give back to everyone in need or do we only help those within our comfort zone?
2. The Dime Story
This is one of the articles I publish annually. There are times when we turn our lives over to our Higher Power but we lack the absolute trust He hears us. This is not just a story but an "activity" for anyone who is feeling spiritually alone. If you are sincere, you will be truly amazed! Try it!
3. Step 1 - Managing the Chaos
A New Year requires a look at Step One. We all understand the powerless part of it but are we still able to manage our lives in recovery.
4. Spirituality-Back from Hell
Religion and spirituality are very different not only for people in recovery but for everyone. Spirituality is the lifeline that keeps us connected to our Higher Power and to our own recovery.
5. Faith in Action
Women's meetings are so vital to recovery. We may not even share the same addiction but if we are in recovery we have an obligation to extend a hand to our sisters. Be a meeting maker from the ground up!
6. The Gift That Keeps On Giving
A key element in recovery is sponsorship. Do you have a sponsor? Are you a sponsor? Should there be criteria to be a sponsor? This is the first article in a series that will discuss sponsorship from every angle.
7. How to Make Amends - Step 8
Every August (8th month), I republish this article. It is one of my most read and I hope one of my most helpful. Your ability to make amends with confidence and sincerity depends on how well you prepare. Don't believe that you can go this route alone.
8. A Letter to My Alcoholic Friend
All of us in recovery have had the experience of having a person we care about not be able to stay sober. This is a real letter to my friend. I hope he reads it. Please join me in praying for all of those out there who can't seem to find sobriety and the hope it offers.
9. The God Box
I've resurrected this article because I have had to remind myself lately about turning it over. Life's problems and concerns are challenging. Those of us in recovery do not have a corner on this market. The God Box is for everyone and anyone who wants to feel peace within themselves.
10. Patience and Tolerance
Society today is all about instant gratification. Patience and tolerance must be our code not just with others but with ourselves and our recovery.
