After Step 12: Promises Checklist- Has life taken on a new meaning? Do I not want to miss the opportunity to watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you, to have a host of friends? Have remarkable things happened? Am I presently living in a new and wonderful world no matter what my present circumstances? Can I do all sorts of things compulsive eaters are not supposed to do? Can I go where my killer-food is served; can I have my killer-food in my home; can I watch movies or television which show scenes of eating my killer-food; can I go to restaurants which serve my killer-food; do my friends no longer have to hide their stories of killer-food when I visit them; can I be reminded of my killer-food? Have I found release from care, boredom, worry? Has my imagination been fired? Does life mean something at last? Do I know what it means to give of myself that others may survive and rediscover life? Have I learned the full meaning of “Love they neighbor as thyself? Has God shown me how to create the fellowship I crave? Have great events come to pass for me and countless others?
