"Who Are The 'NORMIES'?
This home page is for all who want more in their Recovery Process, more serenity, better relationships with themselves and with their spouses, children and parents. Money and religion will no longer be nonfulfilling or a source of conflict in their lives.

Before we get any futher into this issue of recovery, I feel it important to discuss what we might be recovering from. In other words, what might be considered 'normal' by society and what might not be.

A list of personality characteristics follows. Please take the time to read it now. For the sake of this Home Page I will call these people 'normies'."

Le incluyo la referencia de donde fue tomado.

Saludos afectuosos de Oso ¶:^)

Now... according to the experts:

96% of the population are 'normies' !!

(...certainly seemed normal to me!)

Made a decision that I could manage to control everything if people would just quit trying to make my life unmanagable.

Firmly believed that there was no power greater than myself and anyone who said so was insane.

Made a decision to remove my will and my life from the care of god who did not understand me anyhow.

Made a searching and moral inventory of everyone I knew, so they could not fool me.

Sought these people out and tried to get them to admit to me and to god the exact nature of their wrongs.

Became willing to help these people to get rid of their defects of character.

Was humble enough to ask these people to remove all their shortcomings.

Made a list of all the persons who had harmed me and waited patiently for a chance to get even with them.

Got even with these people whenever possible, except when to do so would get me into too much trouble.

Continued to take everyone's inventory and when they were wrong, which was most of the time, promptly tried to make them admit it.

Sought through concentration of my will power to get god, who didn't understand me anyway, to see that my idea's were really better than his, and that he should give me the power to carry them out.

Having maintained my thinking many years through these steps I recommended them to other controllers who did not want to lose their hard-earned status, but wanted to be alone to practice their dysfunction.


Kind of long but it explains well wht normies is.
