# Rule 62 Don't take yourself too damn seriously

Step 8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed,
and became willing to make amends to them all.
P59 AA Big Book Alcoholic Anonymous

Gone through Step 8 list.
Its harder staying away from people.
The ones I am to go to dont seem so hard!!

There are no coincidences!! on the way home, found this
"The Little Book of Stress" Rohan Candappa, it had me
giggling away to myself in the shop as i flicked through pages.

Heres a few exerts that hit home after todays step8 sponsor
chat .... none of these have been suggested as the program of
recovery by my sponsor or anyone else for that matter!!

Lost Love
Make a list of all the people who've ever dumped you.
Contact them all once a year and try and restart the relationship.

Get lost Love
Make a list of all the people you've ever dumped.
Contact them once a year and try to restart the relationship

Nurturing is Good
Nurture your greivances. If you dont they'll die and then whoever's
done you wrong will have got away with it.

Its Better That They Should Know
Recognise other peoples limitations. Then tell people what they are.

Borrowed Disinterest
Never return things you borrow

What Friends Are For
Always borrow money from friends. Forget or put off repaying it for as long as possible.

Captain Hook, I Presume?
Never let yourself, or anyone else, off the hook.

The Theory of Relativity
If Einsten was correct and everything is relative, then it's all your parents' fault.
Blame them as often as you can.

If At First Your Dont Succeed...
It must be someone else's fault. Find them; blame them; make them pay.

It Does You Credit
Apply for as many credit cards as you can. Max them out.
Then get more credit cards and do the same.
