Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it’s much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make!...

“Every A.A. has found that he can make little headway in this new adventure of living until he first backtracks and really makes an accurate and unsparing survey of the human wreckage he has left in his wake.” Remember, you have acted with courage working all of your previous steps in AA and staying sober! With Step Eight you have the opportunity to translate your experience of courage into developing a compassionate spirit. The exact wording of step 8 is: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. “The readiness to take the full consequences...

Step Seven of AA’s Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step recovery program is about getting rid of character defects and replacing them by practicing humility and spiritual principles. Working on the seventh step requires frequent thoughtfulness and commitment to being honest, courageous, and humble. We discovered our assets and shortcomings when working on steps four and five. With Step 7 we became prepared to deal with these qualities so that in Step 7 we could be ready to act. The exact wording of step 7 is: Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Tonight, we talk about Step 7 3:25 To...

Since you have completed Step Four and Five you surely have plenty of things that were revealed to you about what you need to get rid of! So now it’s time to allow a Higher Power to cut out these attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors at the source. You get to partner up with your Higher Power and make a firm decision to let go of the character defects and flaws that have been ruling your life and leading to self-destruction. The exact wording of step 6 is:...

Now, back to the show…

Tonight, the topic is 

Recovery in the Digital Age

When we use digital media, we are responsible for our own anonymity

and for protecting that of others. When we post, text, or blog, we should

consider whether we are publishing at the public level. When we break

our anonymity in these forums, we may inadvertently break the anonymity

of others.

Conference approved literature clearly defines how to protect anonymity.  Conference approved literature states:

 A.A.s do not publicly identify themselves as A.A. members using their full names and/or full-face photos.

What technology tools do you use in recovery?

How does it help?

How do you use it?

How do you get it?

What do you recommend to new people?

How does technology hinder your recovery program?

Are you concerned with privacy?
