ADDICTED

The first step in getting the HELP you need is ADMITTING that you have a problem.

I have given this a lot of thought, I have wrestled with this decision and I am finally ready to come clean to my family, my friends, and even my boss. I have a problem.

I don’t answer phone calls from family and friends anymore and I don’t answer emails AT HOME because I am too busy getting my fix.

I AM ADDICTED…….. to BLOGGING. There I admitted it.

I am hooked, I can’t stop, everything I hear, do, think, see, becomes an unfinished blog in my head… Sometimes I write, just to fucking write. I love it, even if it doesn’t make sense half of the time! I can’t stop!

I never even knew what a BLOG was until a few months ago when the male BF told me about them, and with all the help of my high school big sister and writer, editor, creator of Smoke rings and Coffee Stains, among many other things / blogs ( FYI she is AMAZING). She has helped me design and create my BLOG world and she has given me a new addiction!!!

I have an addictive personality to begin with. I do too much of everything, good or bad for me…maybe I need HELP… (This is for you, “O”)

Step One: I admit, I am powerless over blogging and my life has become unmanageable because I blog too much.

Step Two: I have to believe a power greater than me (like my key board breaking or a thunderstorm with a blackout) can restore me to sanity, and stop the urges to write incessantly. Or, at least force me to take a break!

Step Three: I am supposed to make a decision to turn my will over to a power greater than me…

Step Four: I am supposed to make a fearless and moral inventory of myself… (Check the LIST on the side of this blog…isn’t that an inventory!)

Step Five: Admit to myself and other human beings the exact nature of our wrongs… (Isn’t that what blogging is? At least THIS blog, I announce to the world all of the stupid things that I say and that I do every day!)

Step Six: Become entirely ready to have g-d remove these defects of character (But, then I wouldn’t have anything to BLOG about!)

Step Seven: Humbly ask HIM to remove our shortcomings (g-d please give me a billion dollars, a nice house, a new car, a wonderful husband and to stay young looking and too thin, longer than humanly possible)

Step Eight: make a list of people we have harmed and be willing to make amends to them all… see HERE

Step Nine: Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others …. Lets SKIP that one!!

Step Ten: Continue to take moral and personal inventory (um, every day I update my blog, which brings me back to my addiction….)

Step Eleven: Sought through prayer & mediation to improve our contact with g-d (medication works really well too)

Step Twelve: carry this message to other people suffering, and practice these principals in all our affairs …( DOOD …get a BLOG of your OWN!!)
