Over the years Twelve Step groups have been formed to address almost any issue you can imagine. It all started with Alcoholics Anonymous. The spouses of alcoholics quickly discovered they had special needs and so Alanon was created. On this page there are links to other pages giving detailed descriptions of some of the issues. Those pages may help you identify your issue.
In each separate issue there is a different presenting problem—alcohol, drugs, sex, codependency, food, work, and so on. But as Keith Miller says in Compelled to Control , they are all the same problem. He calls it “the sin disease” or “the control disease”. The symptom is putting yourself in God’s place…in the center, in the driver’s seat. Until you are ready to yield and submit to God and allow Him to be at the center of your life, you will continue to struggle.
