I thought I was over this a long time ago but apparently not.

Isn't it my inability to take step 3 that brought me here!!!??? The eternal 12 step hang up. What am I not getting?! I'm so infuriated!

"I'm not sure it's that easy or something you just do in the morning and then forget. I think I did this at one point, but then I think I panicked and went back to not trusting."

How sincere were you when you did it in the morning?

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
