The Twelve Steps To Insanity

1. We admitted we were powerless over nothing - that we could manage our lives perfectly. We could also manage the lives of those around us.

2. Came to believe that 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 turn their wills and lives over to our care even though they couldn't understand us at all.

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

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

6. Were entirely ready to make others give us the respect we thought we deserved.

7. Demanded that others do our will because we were always enlightened.

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

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

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

11. Sought through complaining and self-medication to improve our relations with others as we could not understand them at all, asking only that they do things our way.

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

Hey! Click on the deer to email me. At least I wasn't presumptuous enough to put a fox on here. LOL And I found some very nice fox GIFs too!

You know what's really funny? I did all of these things! Lucky for me I don't have to live like that anymore. I experienced the breakdown mentioned in Step 12 and suffered on for a number of years. Thank God I finally called AA Central Office up here and got to a meeting. I can laugh about this now, but what a damned exhausting way of life!
