Waking Up Just in Time
Waking up Just in Time
Alcoholics Anonymous has made famous its twelve steps to sobriety. In Waking Up Just in Time, Dr. Abraham J. Twerski shows how you can use the twelve steps to cope with any of life's difficulties, from dishonesty and intolerance of others to substance abuse. Dr. Twerski leads the way through AA's twelve steps toward a happier, more fulfilling life.
A few years ago, Dr. Twerski found that the Peanuts comics of Charles M. Shulz were helpful in his work with psychiatric patients. The humorous words and pictures in Peanuts gave patient and doctor a common ground for talking. Now Dr. Twerski again calls on Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and friends to help illustrate his points in their own inimitable way.

Steps and Slogans
We admitted that we were powerlessthat our lives had become unmanageable
We came to believe that a power great than ourselves could restore us to sanity
We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him
We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves
We admitted to God to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs
We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings
We made direct amends to such people except when to do so would injure them or others
We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it
We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him praying only for knowledge of His will...
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps we tried to carry the message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs
We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all
