Alcoholics Anonymous 12 Steps and 12 Traditions

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is a worldwide movement whose primary aim is to provide the spiritual and psychological therapy required to rehabilitate recovering alcoholics. AA counseling and group therapy sessions are one of the most successful psychological alcoholic rehabilitation programs. The main principles of Alcoholics Anonymous are enshrined in what is called The Twelve Step Program. These steps were first published in the book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered From Alcoholism in 1939 by the founders of AA. The 12 Steps is followed by the 12 Traditions which are the practices to be followed by groups of AA members during the group therapy sessions for alcoholics.

The 12 Steps

  1. Admit that you were powerless over alcohol-that your lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Believe that a Power greater than yourselves could restore you to sanity.
  3. Make a decision to turn your will and your lives over to the care of God as you understand Him.
  4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of yourselves.
  5. Admit to God, to yourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of your wrongs.
  6. Be entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly ask Him to remove your shortcomings.
  8. Make a list of all persons you had harmed, and become willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continue to take personal inventory and when you are wrong promptly admitted it.
  11. Seek through prayer and meditation to improve your conscious contact with God as you understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Have a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, you try to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all your affairs.

The 12 Traditions 

  1. Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon AA unity.
  2. 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.
  3. The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.
  4. Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or AA as a whole.
  5. Each group has but one primary purpose-to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
  6. An AA group ought never endorse, finance, or lend the AA name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property, and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.
  7. Every AA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
  8. Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever non-professional, but our service centers may employ special workers.
  9. AA, as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.
  10. Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.
  11. Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, and films.
  12. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.
