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 Golden Key
There are days in recovery when we are emotional and frustrated and no matter how we try, nothing changes. Here is a another tool for your toolbox. Try "The Golden Key"! I republish it every now and then to remind myself I can always use a bit more help.
2. Drug Addiction and AA
The meeting rooms of AA are not without controversial issues. The one that repeats itself often is sharing an addiction, other than alcohol, with the group. Some say AA means only alcohol; others disagree. The author has her own opinion. What is yours?
3. Tradition Five and Any Lengths
Tradition Five states the groups primary purpose. But what can we do as individuals to carry the message? Does going to "any lengths" to stay sober include reaching out to others? Has your "any lengths" changed in recovery?
4. Step Three: After the Decision
Step Three is much more than a decision. Turning our will and lives over to a Higher Power takes practice. We'll never be perfect but every time we can let go, we grow spiritually and emotionally.
5. To Our Moms
We celebrate our mothers one day a year. I would like to dedicate the entire month to them and to focus on the relationships we share or have shared with them. Men, this is for you, too. A son-mother relationship may be different but moms are still moms.
6. Vivitrol and AA
Science continues to develop drugs that specifically target addictions. These are great advances but can a monthly drug truly help us recover body, mind and soul?
7. Independence Day, Every Day
This is the time of year all Americans celebrate independence. When is your Independence Day? What price did you pay for your freedoms? New freedoms and happiness await one day at a time.
8. Choosing Peace
Recovery gives us the freedom to make choices in our behaviors. How we choose to live the principles of the 12 Steps will determine the peace, happiness and serenity we want in our lives.
9. When Is Service Really Service?
We both need and want to help and to be of service. Every now and then we should examine our motives and our methods. It is never about us; or is it?
10. A Fearless Step Four
Step Four moves us into action. We finally begin to discover who we are and the many "whys" of our behavior. This is one of the few steps that is really all about YOU!
