The first of three practical and highly accessible workbooks for those in early recovery, Living with Your Higher Power takes you through the first three foundation Steps as described in the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous. Guiding you to a personal understanding of the powerlessness of addiction, the exercises culminate in illustrating the necessity of a Higher Power to your recovery.
Living with your Higher Power invites you to begin the journey of recovery from alcoholism or another addiction using the path laid out in the book Alcoholics Anonymous, also known as the Big Book.
Through easy-to-understand text and nearly thirty exercises—some with drawings and diagrams—this workbook guides you through the opening chapters of the Big Book, and helps you ask and answer questions that are vital to understanding the path of recovery ahead. By helping you learn the first three Steps of the AA Twelve Step program, you will be ready to apply and reapply them to your life.
This workbook was created to reinforce important themes and insight in the best-selling book, A Program for You: A Guide to the Big Book’s Design for Living, a celebration of the basic text of Twelve Step recovery.
