Great book, very healing. As is "When God Becomes a Drug". I read both back in the early 90s, and it really helped me. My only problem then was I just couldn't believe myself, that the Witnesses were abusive. That would take another few years to accept.
I dug this up, it helped me back then:
THE TWELVE STEPS FOR RELIGIOUS ADDICTS
(TWELVE STEPS TO RELIGIOUS ADDICTION)
1. We admitted that we were powerless over our dysfunctional religion or beliefs -- that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Spiritual Power WITHIN OURSELVES could guide us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to this Spiritual Power as we understood this Spiritual Power.
4. Made a searching and fearless inventory of our dysfunctional religious beliefs and behaviours.
5. Admitted to our Spiritual Power, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of those behaviours.
6. Were entirely ready to work with our Spiritual Power in replacing all those old behaviours.
7. Worked with our Spiritual Power to help replace our dysfunctional patterns.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we made mistakes, promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with our Spiritual Power, as we understood Spiritual Power, praying only for knowledge of that Power's guidance and the willingness to carry it out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
