Intro and a question
I'm Azya, finally getting around to posting here after joining a few weeks ago :-)
I am a world-class procrastinator (I hate that word - I'm guessing you all understand why), but I'll skip the details for now.
I recently became involved with another 12-step program (debtor's anonymous, I have a problem getting around to paying taxes and things like that). The 12 steps are very much in alignment with my own spiritual (not religious) orientation and I found it gave some structure to working with my avoidance issues. In particular, it does help when I am able to find the willingness to 'surrender' to a schedule or some kind of structure that forces me to consciously allocate my time (as a way of indirectly surrendering to my HP).
This has been working for me to some degree, but I feel a lack of support for this without having a sponsor. I've about giving up finding a DA sponsor, in that the program doesn't entirely fit my issues, and I've not met anyone that quite resonates for me. I would like to start using the check in system here, I think that may help... But I'm curious (this is the question part) why there is not a forum here specifically for working the 12 steps. In the forum posts I've read I don't see any references to the steps or related concepts. Is anyone here working the steps in regards to procrastination? Is anyone interested in connected with me directly on that? If I want to post about that specifically (you know, the kind of posts that 12 steppers tend to write - sharing our "ESH" in regards to the steps and such), which forum should I use?
Thanks in advance everyone...
