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. 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.

2. An Attitude of Gratitude
Gratitude is not something that always comes easy. Sometimes we have to learn or relearn how to be grateful and what we should be grateful for.

3. Cunning, Baffling, and Powerful
An addiction of any type can change our lives and the lives of others in many ways. Being in recovery can be bittersweet. We see the chaos and devastation of addiction but we can also see the importance in connecting with others in recovery.

4. 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.

5. 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?

6. 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.

7. The Intervention Book
I have talked about my book before but have never actually written about what it is all about. Someone else has and I am delighted to have you read his review.

8. Guilt and Shame
There are many things you can say you might feel guilty about. But do you feel shame? There is a big difference between guilt and shame and we must get rid of both to live in peace and serenity.

9. Progress Not Perfection
We love the phrase "progress not perfection". We have worked hard to rid ourselves of the need to be perfect. But do we truly mean it the way it was intended or do we use it as an excuse for old bevaviors?

10. The Bondage of Self
No matter how long we are in recovery or how strong we thing our program is, our humanity sometimes gets in the way of peace and serenity. It is truly the "bondage of self".
