In the calm, I find the answer, let's call this a wind down Friday or just a wind down, after a long day of running, not finishing everything we planned for today.
I am going to read a few snippits from different 12 step books share a little bit on them.
Addiction recovery, how can you get through Step 5 and share with God and another person the exact nature of your wrongs and why does that help you with your addiction recovery? Why do most addiction rehab programs use the 12 step program? What are the 12 steps and why do you need to go to AA meetings for addiction support?
This week, on Recovery Now!, Ned, Dan and Debbie continue their discussion of the 12 steps with an indepth discussion of Step 5.

Mike Callahan and dougananda take a wide ranging look at the first step from the Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon perspectives
12 Stepology is the study of the 12 steps. It all started for me in AA / NA then Ala-non mixed with some ACOA and a little OA for dessert. No pun intended. I use the 12 steps in all aspects of my life and have found the happiness I was looking for in The Drink / The Drug / The Person / The Food / Oh! did I mention Sex.
So I share the 12 Steps, how they work in my life, how ego does not work in my life. The Highs, The Lows,The In Betweens. Other words the path in my recovery to happiness. Have I arrived, Hell! No! But I am on the right path and the journey has improved. My Goal is to share my Experience,Strenth and Hope with as many Peeps possible.
Let The Fun Begin!

According to The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University: "The picaninny was the dominant racial caricature of black children for most of this country's history."
The Abuse, Subjection, Subjugation and Objectification of Black Women and Children the world over is a fact, and with that pain also come the MEN -our sons and fathers, nephews, brothers, uncles, cousins- through our wombs, who cannot remain children forever; but we MUST raise them, we DO raise them, for better or for worse in sickness and in health until death do us part.
The abuse of Black women worldwide is not every now and again, it happens so much that we internalize it and do it to ourselves. These are the kinds of things that we go through on a DAILY basis, around the clock - non-stop, without relinquishment. It is never any wonder why so many Black women behave the way we do, given the circumstances.
Whether we are in church battling over a 'position' or a label in corporate America, or fighting and competing with one another in a dead heat out in the streets, the end results are always the same: More abuse and more objectification. A revolving door cycle that never ends and gets passed on, and WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO HAVE THE POWER TO END IT.
What is the FIRST STEP TO HEALING? Acknowledging that there IS a problem. Period. We cannot keep ignoring these things and think that the world will get any better, or that it will just go away. IT MATTERS: Hurt people hurt people.
