This is the Fourth Edition of the Big Book, the basic text for Alcoholics Anonymous.

With this in mind, steps 4 thru 8 are about to be done right now, in one fell swoop. Stress the Hopelessness of Alcoholism.

He will be more likely to follow your suggestions. This fuels the deep surrender required to break through into a deep spiritual experience.

We avoid diagnosing others as alcoholic. AA has no monopoly on recovery and is best for those with a desire to stop drinking.

Problems with drinking?

It is unfair to expend time with someone who does not want it when that time could be offered to someone who does want it. It covers all the bases. However, this step guide works well with a 4 column inventory worksheet also.

Use a? Enter all the names and fill in the boxes.

Save the discussion of details for step 5. Second, the Fears. Third, the Harms, including sex and financial harms.

This is what the founders focused on. Then do the Affects My: Rows b-f. Rows 1a--f apply to resentments only. It is not necessary to ask these questions for the fears and harms. Start on 3 Selfishness …and work down to 16 Sexual Selfishness for every person, including those listed for Resentments or Fears.

Our inventory is left open for future additions. Self centered thinking separates us from others. This is spiritual sickness.

The founders showed us that thoughts of self block us from a spiritual experience. Emotional and instinctual satisfactions, I saw, were really the extra dividends of having love, offering love, and expressing a love appropriate to each relation of life.

Plainly, I could not avail myself of God's love until I was able to offer it back to Him by loving others as He would have me. And I couldn't possibly do that so long as I was victimized by false dependencies.

For my dependency meant demand—a demand for the possession and control of the people and the conditions surrounding me. While those words "absolute demand" may look like a gimmick, they were the ones that helped to trigger my release into my present degree of stability and quietness of mind, qualities which I am now trying to consolidate by offering love to others regardless of the return to me.

This seems to be the primary healing circuit: an outgoing love of God's creation and His people, by means of which we avail ourselves of His love for us.

It is most clear that the current can't flow until our paralyzing dependencies are broken, and broken at depth. Only then can we possibly have a glimmer of what adult love really is. Spiritual calculus, you say? Not a bit of it.

Watch any AA of six months working with a new Twelfth Step case. If the case says "To the devil with you," the Twelfth Stepper only smiles and turns to another case. He doesn't feel frustrated or rejected.

If his next case responds, and in turn starts to give love and attention to other alcoholics, yet gives none back to him, the sponsor is happy about it anyway. He still doesn't feel rejected; instead he rejoices that his one-time prospect is sober and happy.

And if his next following case turns out in later time to be his best friend or romance then the sponsor is most joyful. But he well knows that his happiness is a by-product—the extra dividend of giving without any demand for a return.

The really stabilizing thing for him was having and offering love to that strange drunk on his doorstep. That was Francis at work, powerful and practical, minus dependency and minus demand. In the first six months of my own sobriety, I worked hard with many alcoholics. Not a one responded. Yet this work kept me sober.

It wasn't a question of those alcoholics giving me anything. My stability came out of trying to give, not out of demanding that I receive. Thus I think it can work out with emotional sobriety. If we examine every disturbance we have, great or small, we will find at the root of it some unhealthy dependency and its consequent unhealthy demand.

Let us, with God's help, continually surrender these hobbling demands. Then we can be set free to live and love; we may then be able to Twelfth Step ourselves and others into emotional sobriety. Of course I haven't offered you a really new idea—only a gimmick that has started to unhook several of my own "hexes" at depth. Nowadays my brain no longer races compulsively in either elation, grandiosity or depression.But what does the Program have to say about this?

Prices in your shopping cart reflect all appropriate discounts. Because I had over the years undergone a little spiritual development, the absolute quality of these frightful dependencies had never before been so starkly revealed. These documents are not part of the A.

I eventually learned how to observe things through a different lens. My stability came out of trying to give, not out of demanding that I receive.

Then only could I be free to love as Francis had.
