As with any recovery program there are 12 steps we can follow in an effort to maintain our stability from day to day. These are the 12 things we should recognize on our road to recovery.
Remember there is HOPE!
- Admit that I am powerless over depression and that my life has become unmanageable.
- Believe that God can restore me to sanity.
- Decide to turn my will and my life over to the care of God Almighty.
- Inventory Myself – identify why I feel the way I feel.
- Admit to God, another person and myself the exact nature of my wrongs.
- Choose to let God remove my shortcomings.
- Ask – humbly ask God to remove my shortcomings.
- Make a List of all the people I have harmed and become willing to make a mends to each of them.
- Make amends to the people on my list wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
- Continue Personal Inventory and promptly admit whenever I am wrong.
- Seek God – Through prayer and meditation, seek to improve my relationship with God. Pray for the knowledge of His will for me and the power to carry it out in every day life.
- Share with others – Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, I will try to carry the message to others and to practice these principles throughout my every day life.
