Overview

The Circle Of Life workbook focuses on compulsive debting. It doesn't matter how we debt ourselves: through compulsively spending, under earning, living in self-imposed deprivation, staying in low paying jobs, time debting etc, we are still debtors and our lives are still unmanageable by our own will. We couldn't will ourselves into stopping our negative compulsive behaviors, even when it meant certain ruin, we continued doing the same things and getting the same results: broke, broker, and broken. Our lives were shattered and the lives of those we loved. Our behaviors were compulsive; we were compulsive debtors.

Compulsive debting is a disease of the body, mind, and spirit. This is the experience of many of us who are in recovery, our strength is the result of being sponsored through the 12 Steps, and our hope is in recovery from this addiction by emulating the success of those who have gone before us. Those seasoned in recovery.

The Circle Of Life was developed to help with the basics of recovery. A strong emphasis is placed on obtaining and utilizing a 12 Step program sponsor. We stress attendance of support meetings and developing a support system. The intention of this workbook is to aid recovering compulsive debtors in working through the 12 Steps with a sponsor.

The first three chapters give information on our addiction, seeking help for recovery from compulsive debting addiction, the feelings that are associated with coming into sobriety, and withdrawal from our compulsive behavior. Chapters four through twelve are dedicated to working the 12 Steps.

By utilizing the tools and by working the 12 Steps in this workbook with a sponsor, we believe that it is possible to get and stay free of compulsive debting. By applying the steps we have worked, and by practicing the principles in our life on a daily basis, an abundant life is available to us.
