Book Summary:

Drop the Rock—The Ripple Effect provides multiple perspectives from people successfully working a Twelve Step Program, showing Step 10 as a key to a sober life free of fear and resentment and filled with serenity and gratitude. When Drop the Rock: Removing Character Defects was first published in 1999, it quickly became the standard resource for working Steps 6 and 7, two of the most challenging of the Twelve Steps for many people in recovery. Learning what it means to fully surrender character defects frees you to make amends with Steps 8 and 9, realize the Big Book’s “Promises,” and move on to Step 10.In this new follow-up resource, Fred H. explores what he calls “the ripple effect” that can be created by using Step 10 to practice Steps 6 and 7 every day and avoid picking up “the rock” again. Drawing on his years of lecturing on the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous and Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, he reveals Step 10 as the natural culmination of working the previous Steps. providing a crash course on renewing your recovery program through the daily practice of Twelve Step principles.Like its predecessor, Drop the Rock—The Ripple Effect provides multiple perspectives from people successfully working a Twelve Step Program, showing Step 10 as a key to a sober life free of fear and resentment and filled with serenity and gratitude.Fred H. has worked in the field of addiction and recovery for over three decades and is the director of the retreat center for a leading addiction treatment program. He is a popular international speaker on the Big Book and the principles of the Twelve Steps.

The newly compiled 12 Step Prayer Book offers adapted and traditional prayers to complement any Twelve Step program or any mindful recovery experience. Collected and compiled from varied authors, faiths, and lifestyles, these prayers of strength and healing will give you a thought for each day. These are the faithful words of the world. From Bill P., the author of the recovery classics Easy Does It and Drop the Rock, and Lisa D., comes this cherished set of prayers, now presented for the first time as part of Hazelden’s beloved series of daily readings. Bookended by morning and nightly prayers, this new edition now provides prayers and readings based on themes related to each Step. Regardless of your religious affiliation or a lack thereof, prayer houses infinite power: it is the spiritual language of the unified human experience. In a modern approach to prayer and meditation, The 12 Step Prayer Book utilizes sources from across the world to support your recovery.

Book Summary:

“Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.” -STEP 12 of the TWELVE STEPS Sponsorship is a key construct in A. A. and other Twelve Step groups, and the twelfth step is the foundation of the sponsorship dynamic essential to recover – both for the sponsor and the sponsoree. This book addresses the concern of many in the A. A. community that sponsors have lost some skills in working with alcoholics. By offering tools for helping others find recovery and new life through the Twelve Step program, Joe McQ has created a guide for sponsors to use in working with others. By refocusing his readers on the Big Book, the Twelve Steps, and their message, McQ appeals for a return to the roots and essence of the A. A. program. Moreover, he issues a strong call to action, for return to the fullness and the integrity of the miraculous recovery program.

Book Summary:

The author, Steven Lewis, in superb life-long health, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease with a survival rate of only 5%. In spite of this, Steven and his wife struggled to achieve and deliberately maintain an extremely positive attitude. This choice started a “ripple effect” that created an exceptionally caring and upbeat community of family, relatives and friends and enabled this community to return even more positive energy to Steven. The story became even more intense when Steven endured a second bout of pancreatic cancer that metastasized to his liver. Surviving a second bout of pancreatic cancer is so rare that no statistics are kept. Today, Steven is cancer free, in excellent health and works out strenuously. Virtually all of us, at some point, will experience extreme life difficulties involving circumstances such as severe illness, injuries, accidents, divorce or natural disasters. A positive attitude can help us think clearly, be solution oriented and ultimately prevail. Whether Steven physically survived or not, an attitude of complaint and negativity would have shattered his emotional life and that of his family. Steven’s choice was to stay positive and upbeat in spite of his situation. What would you have done?

Book Summary:

Most of us in long-term recovery know the Steps so well that we could easily rattle them off from memory, wrapping up our recitation with the familiar and practice these principles in all our affairs. But what are these principles? Exactly what principles are the Steps calling us to practice? Which principles do we practice when working a particular Step? Faced with any number of situations in our daily affairs, how readily do we discern the principles involved, and how well then do we live them out? In AA practicing these principles is the fulfillment of the 12 Steps. It is the programs prescription for the good life, a life of spiritual growth and emotional sobriety that we share with our fellows, helping to bring healing to the alcoholic and to others who suffer in our midst. Yet, though crucial to recovery, many of us are not really sure what these principles are, and their connection to the Steps remains a gray area, in AA and probably in other fellowships as well. This uncertainty spills over into another and related gray area: the relationship between the spiritual, the moral, and the emotional in recovery, and how these are tied to character growth. Because these links too are unclear, emotional sobriety remains a distant and elusive goal for many of us long after we have stopped drinking. We may be sober (or clean, or otherwise abstinent), but our lives are at best manageable and tolerablesometimes not even that. Practice These Principles brings clarity to the relationship between Steps and principles, offering a comprehensive understanding of what these principles are and how we can practice them in our daily affairs. Its purpose is to help us work the Steps in all their fullness so that we can grow in character, achieve spiritual and emotional healing, and see the Promises fulfilled at last in a life that is happy, joyous, and free. - From the back cover
