CR vs The Twelve Step Programs
I am in the CR ministry and have an alcoholic background. I just graduated from the CR program after about a year of going to it every Saturday morning. I also went through treatment in an inpatient program for two years. This is where I was taught the Big Book of AA and the 12 steps. I believe these steps are essential to a contented sobriety. I also think that it works to bring athiests and agnostics closer to God and a spiritual plan of action. My question is how does the CR ministry view AA and its freedom relating to spiritual practices? How do I convey my convictions about Christ in an appropriate way without sounding like dogma? Also what should I do next since I graduated from CR - sponsor another disciple?

To Eat Or Not To Eat

I am a recovering addict who likes to eat out on occasion. Sometimes the dishes I would like to order contain alcohol. Since these dishes tend to be cooked, the alcohol is no longer there. Should I be concerned about eating this or serving it to someone else with a recovery background?

CR Group Rules
The Rules of CRI am interested in starting a Chemical Recovery group in my sector. I have been through a few recovery programs before I became a disciple and was always impressed by the structure in these programs. I understand that CR must also have a structure, but I am at a loss to know what rules can be enforced at the group. How can I tell if a person is really working the program or is just a tourist?

Do I need CR?
I became a disciple a few years ago. I like to have a drink but I do not feel that I have a problem. I want to make sure that I am being my best for God and if CR can help me then I want the help. How would I know if I needed to attend a group for myself?
