Default Taking The Twelve Steps


Here are the steps we took, which are suggested as a program of recovery:

Usage. How to use these step guides. Our suggested technique.
Step 0. want what we have and are willing to go to any length to get it-then you are ready to take certain steps. [rev. 3/29/1999]
Step 1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol-that our lives had become unmanageable. [rev. 5/12/1999]
Step 2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. [rev. 5/15/1997]
Step 3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. [rev. 5/15/1997]
Step 4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. [rev. 5/4/1997]
Step 5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. [rev. 6/21/2000]
Step 6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. [rev. 6/21/2000]
Step 7 . Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. [rev. 11/9/00]
Step 8 . Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. [rev. 5/15/1997]
Step 9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. [rev. 6/21/2000]
Step 10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. [rev. 6/21/2000]
Step 11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out. [rev. 5/15/1997]
Step 12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of theses steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. [rev.5/15/1997]
"No matter what you have done up to this moment, you get 24 brand-new hours to spend every single day." --Brian Tracy
AA gives us an opportunity to recreate ourselves, with God's help, one day at a time. --Rufus K.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. --Franklin D. Roosevelt
We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
