Step 1...We admitted we were powerless over Alcohol--that our lives had become unmanageable. Step 2...Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. Step 3...Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him. Step 4...Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Step 5...Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Step 6...Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Step 7...Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Step 8...Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. Step 9...Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. Step 10...Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. 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. Step 12...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.

Our book is meant to be suggestive only. We realize we know only a little. God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do each day for the man who is still sick. The answers will come, if your own house is in order. But obviously you cannot transmit something you haven't got. See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact for us.

Abandon yourself to God as you understand God. Admit your faults to Him and to your fellows. Clear away the wreckage of your past. Give freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny.

May God bless you and keep you--until then.

Responsibility Declaration

I am responsible
when anyone anywhere
reaches out for help
I want the hand of A.A.
always to be there
For that I am responsible.
