Addicted to Dunzie-The rest of the story.

What did I not notice from the 12 step recovery program?

LisaRose:  The 12 Steps of Dunzie Addicts Anonymous

Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable
Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
Step 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God
Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves
Step 5 - Admitted to…oh, look!...there’s that book I wanted to read…so glad to have found it.
Step 6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
Step 7 - Humbly asked…what was the question, again?
Step 8 - Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all
Step 9 - Made stories and essays and blog posts about our past errors, our dunzie addictions, and our willingness to do something about it
Step 10 - Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it
Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our attention span

Padma:  Step 12 - accept that dunzie is a part of life and move with it, make friends with it and ask it to show up only at certain times so it can have its play with you

Ross: LisaRose, this is exactly what I need! VT community Rocks ;)

LisaRose: Padma, the joke was that a Dunzie addict would get distracted and lose focus before getting to Step 12. :)

Padma:I get it!!!! duh!!!!!!!

Jenn: Way to take the first step Ross!!

Ross: An intervention may be necessary. I didn't notice that only 11 steps had been provided. Boom, Dunzied again!

Kiki: Love "Boom! Dunzied again!"

LisaRose:  That's a hoot, Ross!

Totally missed that LisaRose had not included the 12th step of the recovery program.  Too distracted to notice.
