Ashland AA

Area 26 (Kentucky) – District 23

The 12 Steps of AA

1We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.
2Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11Sought though 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.
12Having 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.
