I am on step 4 now, thatsit. So far, it has been the most difficult step for me. My sponsor has me work out of the NA step working guide, and off worksheets. I am listing my resentments, how they affected me (emotional security, pride, self-esteem, etc) and what my part was in all of that. Verrrrrrrrry eye opening!!
I can't pm you, I don't think, because I'm not a paid member. I don't mind sharing here really. But if you'd like to talk in private my email addy is [email protected]
I don't know if that's allowed (posting my email addy) but I don't care who sees it.
I am going through a pretty severe custody battle with my oldest son which, in a nutshell, is a direct consequence of my addiction. I think that is why I am struggling so much lately. My sponsor told me to not pray for the result I *want* but to pray for the willingness to accept whatever happens....know only what *I* can control in this matter.
I go on occasion to AA, which is right down the road from the treatment center I attend once a week. It's pretty big, but I get alot out of the lead meetings. I have a big book and a basic text (na), but thank you so much for your offer!
