12 step programme for Ebay

“Hi my name is Shan and I am addicted to buying pretty tops and smocks on Ebay.”

Not sure if a Power greater than mine can assist. Surely the Goddess has her own divine Ebay for her own pretties and shares my condition?
Turning my life and will over to her is against my way of living her Way. We argue fiercely at times and that’s fine by both of us. Anyway I’ll choose my own tops and smocks thank you, even of her advice might be welcome.
Make a ‘searching and fearless moral inventory’ of myself? sure but been doing that all my life.
Admit to Goddess, to myself and to another human being the exact natureĀ of my condition. Sure I already do that.
Am ‘ entirely ready to have Goddess remove this defect’hey wait a minute – no more late night searches for pretties? Hmm.
Humbly asked Her to remove my shortcoming. NO. First of all I work on them myself. Second she generously advises if I ask but she’d laugh in my face if I asked her to take over. Humble?Pack it in.
Make a list of all persons I have harmed, and make amends. Well I’ve failed to leave feedback on a lot of items as sometimes there are an awful ot. But most are archived and no longer active for feedback. As for my family they laugh at my stacks and stacks of clothes, saying there are worse weaknesses.
Seek through prayer and meditation to improve my conscious contact with Goddess, praying only for knowledge of Her will for us and the power to carry that out. Maybe that’swhy I don’t think in terms of ‘prayer’ as I know and am used to Her telling me pretty damn quick if She wants me to do something (see above re arguments).
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, I am supposed to try to carry this message to [other Ebay addicts] and to practice these principles in all my affairs. Doesn’t look like it. No ‘spiritual awakening’ arises out of these tacky steps which do not build strength but encourage weakness and dependency on a judgemental deity.

Looks like me ‘n Ebay got some transactions to do. Just bought a sweet top with smocking ….
