recovery is nothing more than the next right thing

Progress Not Perfection

If you are tired of chasing worthy, chasing happy, chasing more and definitely done chasing numb, then you are not alone. The shortest path to recovery is straight through it...from facing truth to feeling pain to trusting God and, ultimately, to experiencing peace. This site contains highlights from my own recovery journey and I hope they are helpful and encouraging for you.


12 steps

step 1: i can't

We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.

step 2: God can

We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

step 3: let God

We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.

step 4: look within

We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

step 5: admit wrongs

We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

step 6: ready self for change

We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

step 7: seek god's help

We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

step 8: become willing

We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

step 9: make amends

We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

step 10: daily inventory

We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

step 11: pray and meditate

We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and power to carry that out.

step 12: give it away

Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these principles in all our affairs.
