12 steps

"Want to Stop the Addiction? Where to Start" - a full page of first steps to changing your life from that of addiction.  What is addiction? How do I know I am addicted?

Then, following are MP3s with guest speakers who have a good familiarity of the Forgiveness Work explaining the complimentary / similarities within 12-step addiction programs (particularly AA).  While some groups may have steps that are worded slightly different, the following ideas are generally included.  

The Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
