Step 1: We admit we are powerless over our addiction and that our lives have become unmanageable.
Step 2: We come to believe that a Power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity.
Step 3: We make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of a higher being as we understand them.
Step 4: We make a searching and fearless inventory of ourselves.
Step 5: We admit to our higher power, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Step 6: We are entirely ready to have our higher power remove all our defects of our character.
Step 7: We humbly ask our higher power to remove our shortcomings.
Step 8: We make a list of all persons we have harmed and become willing to make amends to them all.
Step 9: We make direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure others.
Step 10: We continue to take the personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admit it.
Step 11: We seek through prayer, talking and meditation to improve our conscious contact with our higher power.
