skysoar15 Posted October 9, 2018 Share Posted October 9, 2018 What are your thoughts on them? I'm currently in one, but I'm at odds with the 'higher power' mentality. Does anyone have an objective view of the 12-step programs? Has it worked for you? If so, how have you incorporated the higher power philosophy into your life? Has it worked for people you care about? I'm not in the program because of any legal reasons, but because I've seen habits inside of myself I'd like to improve. These are certain habits that I just can't seem to stop for whatever reason. Figured I'd give the 12 steps a try since my mom has 30 years sober with alcohol because of it. My main fear is that it's just another form of dogma with it's "do this or die" mentality. I don't see how that's much different from Christianity's "do this or risk Hell." Yet, I like aspects of it. Curious what your thoughts on the 12 steps are, because they seem to work for a LOT of people. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
