A Dummy's Guide to Step Eleven
I do enjoy this step and I practice it every day after work. I get home and sit in a special chair I have with a cup of tea and a copy of the Big Book or some AA-related literature and read as much as I can. Sometimes it relaxes me so much I fall off to sleep.
With my work I find myself in some picturesque locations in and around the Plymouth area. And not so long ago it was Wembury beach, a spot about 20 minutes from Plymouth city centre. So at lunch time I went down and sat in my van in the car park armed with my Big Book and a flask of tea; the quiet and peaceful surroundings was complete bliss, perfect for a step 11.
It's not that the Twelve Steps are difficult, but what I find is the more I try and fit them in my daily life the easier they are, and step eleven helps me to accomplish this.
Here are a few books I have read on my step elevens:
THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED
M. Scott Peck
THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD
A DAY AT A TIME
I hope this is of some help to any one out there struggling.
