I was introduced to the ideas of my self-will run riot in recovery.

1. Self-will is my stubborn or willful adherence to my ideas or desires
2. It is part of human nature
3. I desire to advance my ambition
4. I strive to make myself the center of the universe
5. I carry out my wishes despite conflict of value and idea.
6. Self-will is selfish, self-centred, and self-seeking
7. I thought I was doing the right thing when I was wrong
8. It was wrong but I am an exception, this time is different.

My self-will gets me into big trouble every time and I do not understand why.

My self-will ignores doing next right thing or good orderly direction or following God’s will

My self-will did not want to sacrifice or give up my selfish desires

My self-will is dangerous and self-destructive. When it takes control of my life, the hole that I was in become deeper and deeper and life become darker and darker.

I need to practice honesty, humility, compassion, tolerance, and patience whether I like them or not. I need to put interest before self and principles before personalities.

I relapse because I did not like to do it. I need to give up gambling whether I like it or not
