There are a lot of folks out there who like to bad mouth the 12 steps. They offer all kinds of way to get sober and stay sober. I’ll admit it, I haven’t tried any of those things. There are also all kinds of folks out there who claim to be atheist. They also bad mouth the 12 steps. And yet, I see they do believe in something. Very strongly. That isn’t atheism. If you believe in science, you have a belief.
My book isn’t about bad mouthing the 12 steps. It is, admittedly, a different take on the 12 steps, which I happen to adore. I took the basic teachings of the old timers in AA, researching volumes and reams of books and pamphlets and anything else I could find. I talked with old timers. I studied the literature. Then I took the wisdom of New Thought and metaphysics.
And out popped this book. Twenty five years of study, all wrapped up and condensed into this little book. Short read, but if you take the steps (meaning incorporate the into your life), I promise you that you will have a live more wonderful than you ever imagined.
What do I get out of this? Not much, admittedly. I’ll be honest here, sales of this book are not what I had hoped for. Which I fail to understand. And when it does sell, royalties are small.
I just want to help. Really. I see so many people struggling. Some refuse to incorporate the 12 steps into their lives, for a bunch of reasons. So they continue to live lives filled with misery. That isn’t necessary. Don’t struggle. Check it out. The book is available from me directly, or on Amazon and Balboa Press.
And......I have some offerings for you. A workshop. About expectations. Yep..you know that phrase “expectations are premeditated resentments.” Yeah, that one. I cringe every time I hear it. So limiting! Check it out, a different way to view it. The workshop is online, and it is coming up quick, this Thursday. Register now so I can send you the link to attend.
