Most people always try to keep everything to themselves and I read about them blowing themselves away or taking others with them,just because they had to much pride to ask for help.

The twelve steps suggested in this book saved my life in another program 12 step program and have saved millions more.No body ever forced me to believe in anything,but if you actually and TRUELY work the steps as they are layed out in this text,it's hard not to believe in a Higher Power.I've seen too many big ego people blow their heads off,overdose,or what have you.I found following the book much easier.

I would like to say that this book is amazingly life changing and profound, as the Emotions Anonymous (EA) fellowship can be, but it's not. If you're familiar with twelve-step literature from other groups, and looking for something new and different, you will probably find the treatment of the twelve-steps in this book pretty vanilla. EA's program assiduously copies as much from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Al-Anon as can apply to people with with serious mental and emotional illness, and doesn't do much to extend it passed that.

In twelve-step addiction recovery programs (Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Crystal Meth Anonymous, etc), there is in implied goal of changing behavior: changing oneself so that the desire to use drugs and alcohol is gone, or is at least manageable. In most other twelve-step programs that don't deal with drug addiction, there are plans in place to help control the compulsive behavior the program deals with. For example, in Overeaters Anonymous members follow food plans, in Debtors Anonymous members keep numbers and make a spending plan, in Gambler's Anonymous veteran members counsel newcomers on dealing with financial and legal problems and provide direction, in Sexual Compulsives Anonymous members follow a sexual recovery plan. In the Emotions Anonymous program, however, there is no similar extension to help guide members in changing their behavior. While some EA members will develop a new code of conduct, there are no specific guidelines or process in the program (book) for it. If anything, completely removing a concept of abstinence or behavior modification has taken a gear out of the engine that motivates recovery in other twelve-step programs.

All of this is not to say that this book isn't worth reading.

I don't understand why people feel the need to trash something that could be so helpful to so many. If the book or the program didn't help you, then I'm sorry for you. But it might be just what the next person needs. Why would you feel the need to turn them away from something that could save their life (like it did mine). Take what you like and leave the rest. Even AA doesn't work for the majority of those who try it, mostly because they don't have the openmindedness to give it a fair chance. It's the same with any self-help program. So, please just lighten up, live and let live, and encourage others to do whatever they can to survive. What works for one may not work for another.

So glad I bought this! I was uncertain when I started, not being a fan of the religious overtones and uncertain if the AA twelve steps could actually be converted. But, thankfully, I was wrong. This book gave me such hope and peace, I was amazed! I would recommend this book for anyone with mood disorders, regardless of religious background.

I had read this book before and was again truly impressed with how Emotions Anonymous principles applies to most of us. Very validating, very enjoyable. Highly recommend!
