The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous>
The Twelve Steps
1.) We admitted we were powerless over alcohol-that our lives had become unmanageable.
2.) Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3.) Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4.) Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5.) Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6.) Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7.) Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8.) Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9.) Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10.) Continued to take personal inventory and when were wrong promptly admitted it.
11.) Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with Godas we understood Him.
12.) Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
