Alcoholism is a spiritual disease that requires a spiritual recovery. It is important to note that although this series emphasizes alcoholism, its message can be applied to many other forms of compulsive behavior: the overeater, workaholic, sex addict, compulsive gambler, compulsive shopper, and so on. This series describes how 12-step programs work for these and many other compulsions and addictions. Such behavior patterns create the self-centeredness and self hatred that are at the core of spiritual disease. The 12-step program reveals the inner conversion of a person as he moves from self centeredness to God-centeredness, and from self-hatred to self-esteem. This series details the first five steps of the 12 step program and can aid not only the alcoholic or addict, but can serve as a support and educational tool for other members of the family and loved ones.
