Message number 18710 in "Twelve Steps" Date: 10-28-90 08:17 From: Tim Spofford To: Alan Jennings Subj: Steps EID:107d 00979040 MSGID: 1:125/9 9708824c PID: RA 0.04 2238 AJ>Thanks, Tim. I appreciate your quick response. I'll sort of AJ>back out of here and leave this SIG open to those callers AJ>here who request admission. Perchance if you would have the AJ>AA 12-Steps available in a textfile for me to put up in the AJ>library here, I could ask you to generously post it here for AJ>me to export into a textfile. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous 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 ammends to them all. 9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. 10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. 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. 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. --- * Origin: Recovery BBS - San Francisco - (415) 255-2188 *HST* (1:125/9)
