Participant Guides

I talked with the Business Office here at Gramercy Court, and it looks like they have found a way to get me the four participants guides from Amazon.

Today is Saturday October 22, 2016

Right now I don’t want to say what Day 7 is about in the CR Study Bible eBook at this point. I just read what it says. For now I am glad that I have Step One / Principle One down.

I spoke with Social Services yesterday about my appointment with the Behavioral Psycholist.I will probably wait until Wednesday to determine if I can move on to Step Two.

As I recall from last night I spoke with one of the residents sons are who does Video for some of the local teams that helped me out. He suggested that I might have done Step Two already. That may be true, which means I have some extra time to wait until I tackle Step Three.

I forget whether today is the day that I read the GA 12 Steps off of the website. They haven’t sent the yellow combo book yet.

Well there is always a few other options right now.

– I can read the 12 Steps off the GA website
– I can read the 8 Recovery Principles by RickW.
– I can watch the 12 Steps on the YouTube Video

There may be others, but I don’t want to get overwhelmed.

At this point I will have to wait until at least Monday for the participants guides. I will download them from Amazon to Kindle on my iPad. I might try and contact the SA office for help. I saw a place on the internet that provides counseling for SA clients.

I should probably wait and get some sleep in before I take on the task. A Day at a time, and I plan to cover Day 8 tomorrow.

Day 5 Daily Meditation

I just read the Day 5 Daily Meditation in the Celebrate Recovery Bible, and I plan to do Day 6 tomorrow. I know that yesterday morning I was on Step One / Principal One. My plan on October 20, 2016 is to remain on that step until November 2016.

I was supposed to meet with my Behavioral Psychologist on Wednesday, but I never really met her yesterday. She may have come in but hopefully I can meet with her next Wednesday. I plan to do the Day 6 Daily Meditation sometime on Friday.

I posted something on my Facebook blog. I know that everyone doesn’t use Facebook, but I do for right now. It would be nice if I could post my blog on Facebook, but at this point I am trying to step out of denial, and turn my life around.

I also have a Tecarta Bible program on my iPad, and I use both of the Bible’s. At this point I choose to believe that I am a Presbyterian. I joined Westminster Presbyterian Church, but I don’t attend. I am hoping to get a Celebrate Recovery Small Group started in the next six weeks. They are looking into how to get the first four Workbooks. I have a sample of the Participants guide 1 on my iPad.

That is all for now, and I look forward to the Holidays ahead. I just don’t want to see Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving.

Recovery Update

It looks like I may find a way to get a Celebrate Recovery Study Bible eBook. I read the 8 Principles this morning from my sample copy, and I will probably watch the 12 Steps tomorrow. I have discovered them on YouTube.

Today is Sunday. I might get the workbooks, but not right now.

With my two primary addictions, I don’t really know how to explain the difference between an accountability partner and a sponsor. Right now I am covering Step One / Principle One during October 2016. I might make it to a church service today, but I might need to walk. I will check at Lunch. Church doesn’t happen until 2:00PM.

Train Room

I am writing today from the Train Room. The network was down for a few days, so I have not been able to update my blog.

This weekend is Homecoming at my Alma Matter. I was hoping to make the trip down to Santa Barbara and the Westmont College campus. I wasn’t able to make the trip so I am here in Sacramento.

I have several things to do today, but I have Lunch in forty five minutes.

I have decided that I am on Step One / Principle One for the rest of October.
