If nobody was doing any 12th-step work, the program would simply cease to exist. Without the service work of those who came before, no members would be here now.info_outline Step 11 - Recovered 1119
For many AA members, they say they have discovered their higher power and form a better understanding of that power.info_outline Step 10 - Recovered 1117
Step Ten suggests that it's time we take responsibility for our actions and to promptly clean up our role in all matters.info_outline Step 9 - Recovered 1115
By making direct amends to the person harmed the temptation to skirt the issue because of embarrassment or pain is avoided.info_outline Step 8 - Recovered 1113
Making the list is one thing. Become willing to actually make amends to those harmed is another. It can be a very humbling, but growing experience, to actually admit wrong-doing, especially to the person harmed. But the process can relieve those trying to recover from so much guilt!info_outline Step 7 - Recovered 1111
We have taken the very difficult moral inventory and admitted to our wrongdoings to ourselves, our higher power and to another human being. It’s now time to remove those wrongdoings from our everyday lives and we need help to ensure that we completely remove our shortcomings and don’t continue to fall victim to any of addiction’s ill effects.info_outline Step 6 - Recovered 1109
The sixth step can bring about significant and very noticeable change when it comes to the thought patterns and behavior that have been with us for a long time. It doesn’t happen overnight obviously, and there is nothing like perfection when working the twelve steps of AA. It’s about making a commitment and being content with patient improvement.info_outline Step 5 - Recovered 1107
Step Four has prepared you for step five, and by finding the courage to overcome that fear of rejection or the shame of your inventory, you experience honesty on a deeper level than in your first step of admission, and you break the pattern of denial that often plagues those suffering with alcoholism.info_outline Step 4 - Recovered 1105
While working on our step inventories we get a new perspective on the bigger picture, on patterns, selfishness, our responsibility in situations and in this process we are building up an accurate self-appraisal with true self-worth as the reward.info_outline Step 3 - Recovered 1103
When working on step three we take a look at how acting on self-will means behaving with the exclusion of any consideration for others, focusing only on what we want and ignoring the needs and feelings of others. While we were busy pursuing these impulses, we mostly left a path of destruction behind us, and we definitely lost touch with our conscience and a Higher Power.info_outline

The traditions protect the group in much the same way as the steps protect our sobriety
Tradition Two Reads:
For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority — a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
What is a group?
Is this different than a meeting?
What is a group conscience?
How are they held?
What is the format?
Who runs the group?
Is this hard to believe?
Have you ever had a moment when you were convinced that God must be running the group?
Have you ever had a moment when you doubted God was running the group?
Have you ever started a meeting or organized a group event?
Have you ever fallen into the thought trap that you were the boss?
We have calls
Alex from Austin
What are elder statesmen?
Tell us about their opinions and example.
Are they important?
Do we value them?
Where are they?
Am I absolutely trustworthy, even in secret, with AA Twelfth Step jobs or other AA responsibility?
Do I look for credit in my AA jobs? Praise for my AA ideas?
Do I have to save face in group discussion, or can I yield in good spirit to the group conscience and work cheerfully along with it?
Although I have been sober a few years, am I still willing to serve my turn at AA chores?
In group discussions, do I sound off about matters on which I have no experience and little knowledge?
What would you say to the new guy?
