Hi Rox. Are you referring to this?


1. We admitted we were powerless over the addict – 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


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 amends 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 a result of these

steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to

practice these principles in all our affairs.

1) Click on "Discussion Forum"

2) Decide on which Forum is appropriate, i.e. "First Aid" (Help on a specific personal issue), or "Open Forum" (General query), or Coffee Anyone" (Topic with community interest) etc. and click on appropriate "Forums" heading.

Click on "NEWTOPIC" and voila.

Rest I think you already familiar with.
