Step 1 and Honesty

img_3796Hi Everyone!

I am not ready to leave the topic of honesty yet.

After our meeting last week, I spoke with Aidel, who pointed out that honesty is connected to Step 1.

This is part of our main document for our group, Emotional Sobriety – A Journey of Perspective by Karen C.

Step One “I am powerless over alcohol and my life has become unmanageable”

Step 1 Problem =>Self Indulgence

Step 1 Solution => Surrender and Abstinence

Step 1 Prayer = > God, Creative Intelligence, Universal Mind, Spirit of Nature or Spirit of the Universe my name is ______, and I’m a food addict/compulsive overeater … and I need Your help today. (pg. 10-2, 46, & Ch. 3 BB)

Step 1 Principle => Honesty –

The operative principle behind Step 1 is honesty.

If you cannot get honest about the scope of your problem, and honest about a sincere effort to resolve it you will not succeed.

How about a definition of honesty as the absence of the intention to deceive? Who do we try to fool? Ourselves

Step 1 Promise => I am going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.

New Practice

“Tend Your Own Garden”

Attend to your life – no one else’s

Let Go and let other’s be themselves

Get out of the center of everyone else’s lives

Take No Hostages

Live and Let live.

Release yourself from the affairs of others.

Practice the principles of peaceful living no matter where you go.

With blessings for recovery and peace,
