THE 12 STEPS TO A RELATIONSHIP
Sobering up and realizing we were lonely, horny and desperate. We sought to find that special someone, to fill that gaping hole inside us that you could fly a
Boeing 747 through.
Admitted we were obsessing on someone other than ourselves (miracle) and that our lives were soon quickly
going to turn to shit.
Came to believe that we needed to have sex with this special someone as soon as possible… And as often.
Made a decision to turn our bodies and minds over to the care of this special someone, in the hopes that they will fix us.
Made a searching and fearless physical examination of each other.
Manipulating and rationalizing with the committees in our heads, the justification of this relationship.
Pointing out their character defects whenever possible.
STEP SIX And A HALF
Fighting and breaking up….
STEP SIX And THREE-QUARTERS
Getting back together…
More Sex. (Called "I'm Sorry" Sex.)
Made a list of all the things they were doing wrong and became willing to let them know about it.
Admitted to them, we were always right. Making sure when we did so it would make them feel permanently inadequate.
Continued to take each others inventory whenever possible, justifying how we were the victim in this relationship.
MOMENT OF CLARITY! ... Taking Action!
-Asking for help

-Reading and writing

ANOTHER MOMENT OF CLARITY, Then…
-Began admitting when we were wrong and seeing our part
-Showing love through action (Outside of the bedroom)
-Showing up for the relationship (What a concept)
Having had spiritual reckoning. We realized we needed to forgive and love ourselves… before we could love another….
