Leader's Share and Step Questions

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Recovery,

Those of you, who copied me on your answers, thank you! I have read each of your responses and I feel so blessed to be part of your recovery.

Here are the questions that pertain to step 6:



Overall, my obsession with food has been lifted one day at a time. The challenge placed before today is to make more choices that are plant based rather than animal based. This is because I am 60 years old and years of being indoctrinated with the high protein; low carbohydrate diets are starting to kick me where it hurts. Learning to shift food choices for health is a challenge that I leave to God to lead me through. If I had any form of willpower that worked with food, none of you would have ever gotten to know me because I would not need the 12 steps.

I have dealt with several character defects over the years to have them lifted by God. The most recent was my failure to get mad when I should. I would not get ticked off when it was appropriate to get ticked off. Being a compulsive victim, martyr, and doormat, this was a really hard one for me.

One of the positive character traits I used to claim was that I was always so nice and agreeable. This actually covered up the negative trait of not standing up for myself when I needed to.

Love In Recovery,
