12 Steps: NOT For Dummies

Let me be clear: This is NOT a “For Dummies” book, because we who are members of the Recovery Communisty are not “Dummies”. Welcome to my book, “12 Steps: NOT For Dummies“. I am Don Cobb, and welcome to my world, the world of Recovery!

Let’s get started, shall we? A couple of starting points”

  1. You never have to relapse again, even if you want to.
  2. Consider this book “Sponsorship Training”.
“12 Steps: NOT For Dummies” Author Don Cobb

Make no mistake: We are NOT Dummies. We Addicts/Alcoholics/Foodies don’t act the way we or do the things we do because we’re Dummies. I’ve worked in recovery treatment off and on more than 30 years and I’ve identified 3 common threads amongst us:

  1. We are virtually all very bright individuals, mostly of above average intelligence.
  2. We are far more sensitive, emotionally speaking, than most people.
  3. Many Addicts lacked a real, deep and meaningful relationship with their biological Father.

Nearly 90% of alcoholic women were sexually abused as children, or suffered violence at the hands of a parent. (Miller, Downs, 1993)

Up to 2/3 of both men and women in substance abuse treatment report childhood abuse or neglect. (SAMHSA, CSAT 2000).
