We will read from the chapter 12 Principles of Recovery, starting with Principle 4, which states: "We made a searching and fearless emotional inventory of ourselves." We will start with the negative emotional inventory item of HATE. Remember we are to first acknowledge what is in our inventory and then replace it with its positive counterpart.
The Twelve Steps of Addiction associated with the Alcoholics Anonymous organization have some good points that need to be recognized when we fall into faulty behavior. Even though the Twelve Steps and my Twelve Principles were written with alcoholism and drug addiction in mind, the program can be used for other character defects such as - Anger, Abuse, Compulsive disorders, Overeating, Gambling, Sexual, and Controlling issues. When accepting a new life for yourself and realizing that you have to first forgive yourself and others, just saying the words alone may not be good enough to internalize real change. This is why following a program methodically with a solid commitment, and demonstrating the new you by being the example of what you are now believing, you can have more reassurance of a new path for yourself.
