Twelve Steps of a Relapse

1.† I decided I could handle any emotional problem if other people would just quit trying to run my life.

2.† I firmly believe that there is no greater power than myself and anyone who says differently is insane.

3.† I made a decision to remove my will and my life from God, who didnít understand me anyway.

4.† I made a searching and thorough moral inventory of everyone I know, so they couldnít fool me and take advantage of my good nature.

5.† I sought these people out and tried to get them to admit to me, by God, the exact nature of their wrongs.

6.† I became willing to help these people to get rid of their defects of character.

7.† I was humble enough to ask these people to remove their shortcomings.

8.† I kept a list of all the people who had harmed me and waited patiently for a chance to get even with them.

9.† I got even with these people whenever possible except when to do so would get me in trouble.

10.† I continued to take everyoneís inventory and when they were wrong, which is most of the time, I promptly made them admit it.

11.† Sought through the concentration of my will power to get God, who didnít understand me anyway, to see that my ideas were best and he ought to give me the power to carry them out.

12.† Having maintained my emotional problems, as a result of these steps, I recommend them to others who want to lose their hard earned status and wish to be left alone to practice neurosis in everything they do for the rest of their lives.
