Need to focus on Step 2

I believe that, after twice going from Steps 1 to 9 and then hitting 'The Wall', I need to return to Step 2, especially to start believing that I can be restored to sanity once more. I need to restore my Spiritual Side of things.
Also, I have to start setting the alarm early once more and developing more of a routine.
My writer's block is a major bone of contention as well. Up until a few years ago I could write for Ireland, now I feel that my mental fog is blocking me.



On a personal note, I found the Step 2 reading from the AA 12 and 12 a bit too patronising and matter of fact. The Step 2 reading in the OA 12 and 12 was much more to my satisfaction as it deals with the insane behaviour of addicts better.
