The 12 Steps of AA

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) outlines a 12-step program to help members achieve and maintain sobriety. The steps aim to motivate members toward positive change across North Carolina.

1. Admitting powerlessness over alcohol: Members admit they are powerless over alcohol and that their lives have become unmanageable.
2. Believing in a higher power: Members come to believe that a Power greater than themselves can restore them to sanity.
3. Turning will over: Members make a decision to turn their will and lives over to the care of God as they understand Him.
4. Moral inventory: Members make a searching and fearless moral inventory of themselves.
5. Admitting wrongs: Members admit to God, to themselves, and to another human being the exact nature of their wrongs.
6. Becoming ready: Members become entirely ready to have God remove all their defects of character.
7. Asking God: Members humbly ask God to remove their shortcomings.
8. Making a list: Members make a list of all persons they have harmed and become willing to make amends to them all.
9. Making amends: Members make direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others.
10. Continuing inventory: Members continue to take personal inventory and when they are wrong, promptly admit it.
11. Prayer and meditation: Members seek through prayer and meditation to improve their conscious contact with God as they understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will and the power to carry it out.
12. Spiritual awakening: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, members try to carry this message to other alcoholics and practice these principles in all their affairs.
