Psychology and Spirituality come together in this scintillating collection of stories, insights and humorous quips from 25 years in Recovery. The addict or alcoholic committed to change has to deal with normal human challenges without reaching for the bottle or drug that had become habitual. Recovering alcoholics seek far and wide and incorporate many sources of wisdom into their search for living life with greater awareness, consciousness and self-understanding. And they know how to laugh. This is a collection of diverse viewpoints from the rich oral tradition of AA, ranging from the highly reverential to the fiercely rebellious. This book shows that the Twelve Steps and their deep spirituality can be approached from both a traditional, faith-based viewpoint or an awareness-based, secular, non-theistic, perspective similar to what is found in depth psychology and in eastern wisdom traditions. Three appendices provide modern views on "Anger, Rage and Resentment," "Do I need to believe in God to be in AA?" and "Getting the Alcoholic Sober." Book jacket.
