The next phases of the book suggest going to observe an Alcoholics Anonymous open meeting to see how support groups work, and then to seek out a Debtor’s Anonymous support group It is worth checking their question list to see how you fit.
I answered ‘yes’ to 2 out of 15 questions:
1. Are your debts making your home life unhappy? sometimes
10. Does the pressure of your debts cause you to have difficulty sleeping? sometimes
So, that is a positive aspect. I really like something written on that page:
We have all arrived at this crossroad. One road, a soft road, lures you on to further despair, illness, ruin, and in some cases, mental institutions, prison, or suicide. The other road, a more challenging road, leads to self-respect, solvency, healing, and personal fulfillment. We urge you to take the first difficult step onto the more solid road now.
