12 Steps of Non-Recovery

1) We admitted we were powerless over nothing, that we would manage our lives perfectly and those of anyone else who would allow us to.

2) Came to believe there was no power greater than ourselves and that the rest of the world was insane.

3) Made a decision to have our loved ones and friends turn their will and their lives over to our care even though they couldn't understand us.

4) Made a searching moral and immoral inventory of everyone we knew.

5) Admitted to the whole world the exact nature of everyone else's wrongs.

6) Were entirely ready to make others straighten up and do right.

7) Demanded other to either shape up or ship out.

8) Made a list of all persons who had harmed us and became willing to go to any length to get even with them all.

9) Got direct revenge on such people whenever possible, except when to do so would cost us our lives, or at the very least a jail sentence.

10) Continued to take the inventory of others and when they were wrong promptly and repeatedly told them about it.

11) Sought through complaining and nagging to improve our relations with others as we couldn't understand them asking only that they knuckle under and do it our way.

12) Having had a complete physical, emotional, and spiritual breakdown as a result of these steps, we tried to blame it on others and to get sympathy and pity in all of our affairs.
