12 Steps Of Alcoholics Anonymous
We admitted we were powerless over alcohol- that our lives had become unmanageable.
Came to believe that a Power greater than our-selves could restore us to sanity.
Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being, the exact nature of our wrongs.
Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make ammends to them all.
Made direct ammends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
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.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result
of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to
practice these principles in all our affairs.
