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 El Paso, Texas.

  1. Admit that you are powerless over alcohol and that your life has become unmanageable.
  2. Come to believe that a Power greater than yourself can restore you to sanity.
  3. Decide to turn your will and your life over to the care of God as you understand Him.
  4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of yourself.
  5. Admit to God, yourself, and another human being the exact nature of your wrongs.
  6. Become 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 have harmed and become willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others.
  10. Continue to take personal inventory and when you are wrong, promptly admit 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 you and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, try to carry this message to alcoholics, and practice these principles in all your affairs.

The 12 steps aim to help members take responsibility for their alcoholism, examine their flaws, make amends, improve contact with a higher power, undergo a spiritual experience, and help others with alcoholism. Following this path motivates lasting, positive change for AA members in El Paso seeking sobriety.
