For those who don't know, I'd typed from Courage to Change from January to mid-August in hopes of putting CTC words of wisdom to work in my life. In August 2010, I put my practice to rest when a viewer helped me to understand it was plagiarism. So, I changed my recovery practice, to share more my interpretations and experience in response to CAL literature instead. And I've branched out in other directions since then.
Truth was, from the beginning, the only way I got anything out of the literature, was to buy my own copy. So, I have always encouraged others who stumbled on my adaptations of Courage to Change.... to buy their own book and, better yet, get to a meeting.
Meanwhile, JC, perhaps it IS time I understood that the earlier material I'd innocently put up for myself to use, is a free read for others.
In order to create a clearer message, I've been taking down the remains of last year's adapted material that is largely material from Courage to Change (which I'd adapted for family members whose lives are impacted, not by alcoholism, but by a dysfunctional family member.) If you want what I have, buy it. Courage to Change is accessible, and eye-opening read for anyone who wants to get exposed to program principles. All you need do is, like me, to translate it to your own issues.
Many of you may know that my work is becoming more oriented around using my personal understanding of program to live one day at a time through an expected move... and growing my EA program to address Family of Origin issues.
I continue privately to develop Alanon concepts to address life with a person having Borderline Personality Disorder. Through Alanon I've learned how to better make personal peace with my mom and help my Sponsees determine whether Step Nine is advised with their BPD family member.
What remains on my blog are my own interpretations, personal story and musings.
