Videos under '12 Step Attitude'
G-d wants to help us, but as the Kotzker Rebbe said, "G-d comes in only where we LET Him". The 12-Steps teach us Forgiveness, Honesty, Selflessness, Letting go of Resentments, Gratefulness, etc. and how to get rid of our character defects. These are the bedrocks of recovery which allow G-d into our lives. Once He is in our hearts, the miracle of recovery happens on its own!

Forgiveness and "Letting go of resentments" is one of the bedrocks of 12-Step recovery. We need to learn to forgive for our OWN sake, for our own inner-peace. This beautiful clip is a great example of how faith can help a person forgive and let go of the past.

No one will work towards recovery if they don't first focus on what they have to fight for.
An "attitude of gratitude" is one of the hallmarks of recovery in the 12-Step program.
Sometimes only one addict can understand another addict. Those who know need, can perhaps understand best others in need.
A GYE member wrote: I saw this video and it brought me to tears, 'cuz I know it's true. We did not have children for ten years, and then thru "Daven For Me", my wife davened for two women, and they davened for her. Within less than a year, they each had a child (one had a boy, the other a girl) and we had twins - a boy and a girl! Incidentally, I think it's an appropriate call for action for the GYE crowd, davening for someone else's recovery. Getting outside of oneself. Most certainly a powerful tool in our struggle!
A 75 year study proves that being there for others is ultimately what keeps us alive and happy.
Putting ourselves in other people's shoes can help us let go of resentments we may harbor against those we disagree with.
