♥ Book Title : The 12 Steps Unplugged
☯ Full Synopsis : "In this straightforward and funny guide, John R. interprets the philosophies and stories of the Big Book for young people. Like many alcoholics and addicts, when John R. began his recovery at age seventeen, he was given a Big Book. At first he was reluctant to wade through the old-fashioned language and the stories about people he didn't think he could relate to. But, over time, he realized that the best way to get sober--and to stay sober--is to learn from those who have gone before us. And so he read Alcoholics Anonymous and took the first step toward changing his life. Today, with more than twenty years of sobriety, John is an adolescent chemical dependency counselor, showing addicts how the core messages of AA are as powerful and relevant to them as they have been to the millions of others who have gotten help for addiction over the years. With The 12 Steps Unplugged, he makes the Twelve Steps accessible to all of us.In this simple and often funny guide, he interprets the philosophies and stories of the Big Book in straightforward language that speaks to regular people. John will help you connect with the basic messages of getting honest with yourself, accepting the help of others, and finding a relevant spiritual support.Through The 12 Steps Unplugged, you'll discover just how universal the AA program really is."Article| Anonymous| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Carl Jung and Alcoholics Anonymous
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Show me a drunk and I'll show you someone in search of God", is a saying that could be derived from Carl Jung. Jung wrote to Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.), about his understanding of Rowland Hazard's alcoholism: "His craving for alcohol was the equivalent, on a low level, of the spiritual thirst of our being for wholeness, expressed in medieval language: the union with God". .The author visited the archives of the headquarters of A.A. in New York, and discovered new communications between Carl Jung and Bill Wilson. For the first time this correspondence shows Jung's respect for A.A. and in turn, its influence on him. In particular, this research shows how Bill Wilson was encouraged by Jung's writings to promote the spiritual aspect of recovery as opposed to the conventional medical model which has failed so abysmally.The book overturns the long-held belief that Jung distrusted groups. Indeed, influenced by A.A.'s success, Jung gave "complete and detailed instructions" on how the A.A. group format could be developed further and used by "general neurotics".Wilson was an advocate of treating some alcoholics with LSD in order to deflate the ego and induce a spiritual experience. He wrote to Jung for his comments on this controversial idea. Jung was stridently opposed to "short cuts", to transcendent experiences; however he died before he could reply to Wilson's comprehensive letter.The author explains how alcoholism can be diagnosed and understood by professionals and the lay person; by examining the detailed case histories of Jung, the author gives graphic examples of its psychological and behavioural manifestations.By combining the narratives of recovering alcoholics with a Jungian perspective, the author explains how the program of the 12 steps can lead to a journey of spiritual awakening or in Jungian terms, individuation. This book explains in plain words the language of A.A. and takes the reader inside a meeting to show how it works in practice.The final chapter deals with the criticism that both organisations have "cultish" aspects."Article| Ian McCabe| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Design for Living
☯ Full Synopsis : "The 12 Steps are the foundation of A.A.'s program of recovery, and five of those steps are based on God. Since A.A. describes itself as a spiritual Fellowship, many new to A.A. are confused as to why a Christian God lies at the center of the 12 Steps, and may mistakenly assume that believing in God is required to participate in A.A. and recover from alcoholism. In Design For Living—Daily Meditations on the 12 Steps of A.A. for Atheists & Agnostics, life-long atheist Alex M. shares how anyone, regardless of their beliefs, can achieve sobriety through the 12 Steps of A.A. His approach compliments his companion book Daily Reprieve—A.A. for Atheists & Agnostics, in which he discusses how atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, humanists and non-Christians can use the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous as an effective recovery guide. Design For Living is divided into three parts. The Preface provides some background on the author and his experience, along with information about the content of the book. The Daily Meditation section consists of the author's experience working through each of the 12 Steps. The last section contains a sample copy of an eight-week Step Study Guide."Article| Alex M.| Statement ..."
