AA uses the twelve step method in approaching sobriety:

Step 1 We admitted we were powerless over alcohol-that our lives had became unmanageable.

Step 2 Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity

Step 3 Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of Gad as we understood him.

Step 4 Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves

Step 5 Admitted to God, to ourselves and to other human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Step 6 Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Step 7 Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

Step 8 Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and become willing to make amends to them all.

Step 9 Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so we would injure them or others.

Step 10 Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Step 11 Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge or His will for us and the power to carry that out.

Step 12 Having had a spiritual awakenings as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principals in all our affairs.
