The Twelve Steps to Insanity ... Compliments of Sacramento ACA

1.     We admitted we were powerless over nothing ~ that we could
         manage our lives perfectly, as well as those of anyone else who
         would let us.

2.     Came to believe that there was no power greater than ourselves
         and the rest of the world was insane.

3.     Made a decision to have our loved ones turn their wills and their
         lives over to our care even though they couldn't understand us 
         at all.

4.     Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of everyone we 

5.     Admitted to the whole world at large the exact nature of 
        everyone else's wrongs.

6.     Were entirely ready to make others straighten up and do right.

7.     Demanded others either shape up or ship out.

8.     Made a list of all persons who harmed us and became willing to go
         to any lengths to get even with them all.

9.     Got direct revenge on such people whenever possible except
         when to do so would cost us our lives or at the very least a
          jail sentence.

10.  Continued to take the inventory of others and when they were
         wrong promptly and repeatedly told them about it.

11.   Sought through bitching and nagging to improve our relations
         with others as we could not understand them at all, asking
         only that they knuckle under and do things our way.

12.   Having had a complete physical, emotional and spiritual
         breakdown as a result of these steps we tried to blame it
         on others and to get sympathy in all our affairs.
