12 Steps & Traditions
Addiction isn't a choice. The Twelve Steps are a set of guiding principles in addiction treatment that outline a course of action for tackling problems including alcoholism, drug addiction and compulsion. 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 5 : Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Step 8 : Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
Came to believe that a Higher Power of our understanding could restore us to sanity. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of our Higher Power, to help us to rebuild our lives in a positive and caring way. Made a searching and fearless personal inventory of ourselves. Admitted to our Higher Power, to ourselves, and to another human being, the exact nature of our liabilities and our assets. Were entirely ready to have our Higher Power remove all our liabilities. Humbly asked our Higher Power to remove these liabilities and to help us to strengthen our assets for recovery. Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
