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.Connect
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.
We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.
We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.
We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
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.
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.
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten... ”
“Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.”
“To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning...”
“I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry.”
