Summary

These essays are ultimately designed for long term members of 12 step fellowships to help them be better sponsors and to help them be of service to others without allowing it to become their whole identity. In recovery, we get a chance to help others, but, in attempting to do so, we end up making mistakes, and coming face to face with our own characters defects. Service to other is a chance for us to exercise our own personal demons. Here are some essays, written by Twelve Step members, as they struggle to learn how to lead other by example. If you are new to recovery or questioning staying clean, then this book probably isn't for you. There is a whole myriad of books focused on early recovery.

Recycling NA philosophy for profit.

As being familiar with the NA narrative I am not sure if the recovering stories that firmly belong to the new way of life given to us freely should be used for generating profit.

Taking my Own Daily Inventory

I can relate, release, & eventually relax using this supplemental to recovery. It’s brought me great comfort hearing the Hamlet version of the program doesn’t just exist inside my programming. Loved hearing about Romeo,hippy STEVE, and Angry 😤Bill. Can’t wait to hear about Othello and others in this series.

Narration was so bad...

I couldn’t get to the content or focus due to what sounded like computer generated narration to tead the text. A major disappointment
