My name is Dawn and I am a blogoholic

In my search for help with my little “problem”, I came across the 12-step program for Alcoholics Anonymous and thought I’d tweak them a little to deal with my blog addiction.

*Please note…this is not intended to poke fun at or demean the AA program at all. Surviving and conquering addiction is something to be extremely proud of and is a very difficult and lifelong task. This post is just for fun.*

The 13 Suggested Steps of Blogoholics Anonymous:

1. Admit you are powerless over your blog–that your life has become unmanageable.
2. Come to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore you to sanity.
3. Make a decision to turn your will and your life over to the care of God as we understand Him.
4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of yourself.
5. Admit to God, to yourself and to another human being, the exact nature of your wrongs.
6. Be entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7. Humbly ask Him to remove your shortcomings.
8. Make a list of all persons you have harmed, and become willing to make amends to them all.
9. Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continue to take personal inventory and when you are wrong, promptly admit it.
11. Seek, through prayer and meditation, to improve your conscious contact with God, as you understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for you and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, try to carry this message to blogoholics, and practice these principles in all your affairs.
13. Turn off the DAMNED computer! Pin It
