Reasons I don’t want to ever attend a 12-step program:
I don’t like to touch. I don’t like to hug.
I don’t want others to know about me or my problems.
I don’t want to even admit to myself that I have compulsions and addictions.
I want to work this out myself.
I don’t want to know about other people’s stuff.
I don’t want to talk, because then I always regret.
I don’t want to pray. I don’t feel deserving to pray.
I don’t want to be uncomfortable.
I don’t want to appear weak.
I don’t want to cry in front of anyone.
I don’t want to start something I know I won’t finish.
I’ve done these kinds of programs before and really dislike all the drama.
Reasons I probably should attend this 12-step program:
It’s the Church’s recommended program to deal with compulsions and addictions.
Something that keeps catching my attention:
My life feels so unmanageable.
