I used to attend a group recovery meeting every Sunday night. Because it was discontinued for the quarantine, I want to continue using that concept to help my recovery by posting here each week.
Each week I will post excerpts and thoughts from one of the 12 steps and I invite all of you to likewise share your experiences, thoughts and encouragement. (Please keep any comments clean, and focused on solutions rather than problems.)
I am not an official representative of the organization. The following two paragraphs are quotes from their guidebook:
LDS Family Services Addiction Recovery Program has adapted the original Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. into a framework of the doctrines, principles, and beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Twelve Steps are reprinted and adapted with permission of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. (A.A.W.S.) Permission to reprint and adapt the Twelve Steps does not mean that A.A.W.S. has reviewed or approved the contents of this publication, or that A.A.W.S. necessarily agrees with the views expressed herein. A.A. is a program of recovery from alcoholism only—use of the Twelve Steps in connection with programs and activities which are patterned after A.A., but which address other problems, or in any other non-A.A. context, does not imply otherwise. Additionally, while A.A. is a spiritual program, A.A. is not a religious program. Thus, A.A. is not affiliated or allied with any sect, denomination, or specific religious belief.
