Step Twelve


“12. Having had

a spiritual awakening

as the result of these steps,

we tried to carry this

message to alcoholics,

and to practice these

principles in all our affairs.”


BB,  p. 60


It may appear to be a two part step

when in reality it is only one step because

you can’t do one part without doing the other.

If you are not practicing these principles

in all of your affairs,

better know as walking the walk,

you have no message to carry to other alcoholics.

The spiritual awakening is not a part of Step Twelve,

as a matter of fact if you have not had

a spiritual awakening by the time

you have reached the Twelfth Step

you may need to go back and review your

efforts beginning with Step One.

Today, be honest, carry the true message.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
