A 12-step guide for non-addicts
Many of us suffer unnecessarily because of how we react to what happens to us in life.
“The way I reacted to life took me to a place where all my reserves were depleted. I was emotionally devoid of any feeling, near-suicidal and incapable of connecting with others. I knew no concept of spirituality and felt absolutely no sense of meaning or joy. Most of all, I was afraid. Afraid I would die if I continued to live the life I was leading. Afraid I would not die and would have to continue my miserable life.”
A spiritual programme
Life Anon adapts the spiritual programme of Alcoholics Anonymous for non-addicts. I have compiled a step guide that will take the reader on a journey through the 12 steps from reacting hurtfully to responding appropriately to life.
