Recovery is not a man's world, and yet to a woman it can sometimes seem that way. Geared specifically to that woman, this book brings a feminine perspective to the Twelve Step program, searching out the healing messages beneath the male-oriented words. Based on an open exploration and a flexible interpretation of the Twelve Steps, this new perspective takes into account the psychological development of women as it relates to addiction and recovery, as well as the social and cultural factors that affect women in particular. Acknowledging that recovery raises special issues for women--from questions about sexuality, relationships, and everyday life to anxieties about speaking up at mixed-gender meetings--A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps focuses directly on the feminine experience of addiction and healing. The author explores the Twelve Steps one by one, reiterating each in its traditional language, then explaining and illustrating it in a way that highlights a woman's experience--empowering the reader to take ownership of her own recovery process as well as her growth as a woman.

Designed to be used with A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps, this workbook helps deepen the understanding of the lessons taught and brings them to life with exercises and journaling activities. Women's recovery can differ from men's, and each person's recovery is in many ways unique. That's why Stephanie Covington has designed this workbook A Women's Way Through the Twelve Steps to help a woman find her own path-and find it in terms especially suited to the way women experience not just addiction and recovery but also relationships, self, sexuality, and everyday life. Deepening and extending the lessons of a book that has helped countless women, this workbook makes A Woman's Way Through the Twelve Steps that much more measured, meaningful, and clear.

"A celebration of the varieties of recovery experience." From the foreword by William L. White, author, "Slaying the Dragon: The History of Addiction Treatment and Recovery in America." "There are many versions of the 12-Step program of recovery. In fact, there are about as many versions as there are alcoholics in AA who use the program to get sober and to maintain their sobriety." Thus begins "The Little Book: A Collection of Alternative 12 Steps." Inside: * Twenty alternative versions of the 12 Steps reflecting a wide range of philosophical, professional, religious, and cultural perspectives and traditions. * Four interpretations of each of the Steps by well-known authors Stephanie Covington ("A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps"), Therese Jacobs-Stewart ("Mindfulness and the 12 Steps"), Allen Berger ("The Therapeutic Value of the 12 Steps") and Gabor Mate ("In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts"). * Templates so the reader can write her or his own personal alternative 12 Steps as well as record insights into - and interpretations of - each of the Steps. * An essay that accurately and insightfully traces the origins of the AA 12-Step recovery program. The Little Book is a celebration of the many ways people are today adapting and interpreting the original 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in order to achieve a "personality change sufficient to bring about recovery from alcoholism." "A beautiful testimony to AA's living history." Ernest Kurtz, author, "Not God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous."

A guide to all kinds of addiction from a star who has struggled with heroin, alcohol, sex, fame, food and eBay, that will help addicts and their loved ones make the first steps into recovery “This manual for self-realization comes not from a mountain but from the mud...My qualification is not that I am better than you but I am worse.” —Russell Brand With a rare mix of honesty, humor, and compassion, comedian and movie star Russell Brand mines his own wild story and shares the advice and wisdom he has gained through his fourteen years of recovery. Brand speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addiction—from drugs, alcohol, caffeine, and sugar addictions to addictions to work, stress, bad relationships, digital media, and fame. Brand understands that addiction can take many shapes and sizes and how the process of staying clean, sane, and unhooked is a daily activity. He believes that the question is not “Why are you addicted?” but "What pain is your addiction masking? Why are you running—into the wrong job, the wrong life, the wrong person’s arms?" Russell has been in all the twelve-step fellowships going, he’s started his own men’s group, he’s a therapy regular and a practiced yogi—and while he’s worked on this material as part of his comedy and previous bestsellers, he’s never before shared the tools that really took him out of it, that keep him clean and clear. Here he provides not only a recovery plan, but an attempt to make sense of the ailing world.

Geared specifically to women, this book brings a feminine perspective to the Twelve Step program, searching out the healing messages beneath the male-oriented words. La recuperación no es un mundo exclusivo de los hombres, pero, a veces, para una mujer parece serlo. Este libro pensado específicamente para esa mujer, trae una perspectiva femenina al programa de los Doce Pasos, descubriendo los mensajes de sanación detrás de las palabras orientadas para los hombres. Basado en una exploración abierta y una interpretación flexible de los Doce Pasos, esta nueva perspectiva toma en cuenta el desarrollo psicológico de las mujeres en lo relacionado a la adicción y a la recuperación, así como también los factores sociales y culturales que afectan a las mujeres en particular. Reconociendo que la recuperación plantea cuestiones sobre temas especiales para la mujer—desde preguntas sobre relaciones sexuales, relaciones, y sobre la vida diaria, a ansiedad para hablar en situaciones donde hay personas de ambos sexos-- La Mujer y su Práctica de los Doce Pasos se enfoca directamente en la experiencia femenina de la adicción y la sanación. El autor explora los Doce Pasos uno por uno, reiterándolos en su language tradicional, explicándolos y mostrándolos para destacar la experiencia de la mujer—capacitando al lector a ser “dueño” de su propio proceso de recuperación así como también de su crecimento como mujer.
