I am not a licensed therapist, counselor, or psychologist. The stories and poems I use on Creating Dreams are from my own
personal experience. I use the 12 steps as a guide because they have worked for me. Throughout my time in recovery, I have
attended five different groups that use the 12 Steps as their guide. The way I achieved recovery in these programs is not an
endorsement, by me in anyway, as the only means to long term recovery. I provide various links to different sites with other
messages for recovery. Ultimately, the way you choose to remain sober and clean is your choice.
While I believe in the recovery strengths of the 12 Step program, Creating Dreams is not affiliated with any 12 Step program. This
site is not approved, nor endorsed, by AA, CODA, or ACOA. Nor am I spokesman for any of these groups. While you can guess

interviews for my participation in any of these groups, nor do I consider this site to be a promotion for any 12 Step group, nor any

While I provide various links as a means for information, in no way does it constitute an endorsement. I have enjoyed visits to these
sites and share them here with you as means to help you on your journey.
By sharing my thoughts on religion and spirituality, as well as the 10 Commandments and the 12 Steps, I need to say that I am not a
spiritual counselor. I do believe that it is a gift given to us to explore all available avenues to find a Higher Power of our
