Other helpful resources
Of course the addictions above are only a few of the hundreds of manifestations of this disease plaguing humanity. If you believe you may be addicted to something which is not mentioned here, chances are there is a 12 step program to help you on the path to freedom. And chances are that there are other members of the Wecovery community who suffer from the same addiction as you.
If you are new to a 12 step program, it is recommended you go to 6 meetings before deciding whether it is right for you or not. Going to your first meeting can be a very emotional experience. Look for commonalities between yourself and the people there. They have been in your shoes before and are there to help you.
Remember, we're all in this together.
Am I an addict?
The first step of any 12 step program is to admit that we are powerless over our addictions and that our lives have become unmanageable. Here are some resources that may help you assess whether or not you are an addict, and to break down the wall of denial if you are. If you determine that you are an addict, do not be discouraged. This is the first step toward a life full of boundless possibilities.
A new dawn...
