Studying the Steps is not the same as taking the Steps. In the "Al-Anon Beginners' Classes" you take the steps. The Al-Anon Big Book says, "Here are the steps we took" not "here are the steps we read and talked about." A lady joined a group and took to the Al-Anon program big time, but she was told that she could not do the 4 hours steps as adapted for Al-Anon, now she is leaving the group because she is moving away without being taken threw the steps. She feels frightened,vulnerable and alone. Takeing the 12 Steps is important to Al-Anon members at this time of year many alcoholics die or relapse and the comfort of having a fast working program is denied to the membership. Please take the 4 hours steps then make your own judgement. Do not become closed minded and judgemental over something you have no knowledge of.What are we asking is 4 hours of your T.V time and then you can say with knowledge...........It is the most loving action that affirms my recovery and allows me to live with or move away from active addiction. I too was closed minded,violently opposed, irritated by the person who told me to sit still listen and learn to work the steps. I have been in the fellowships for 30 years and I knew nothing till I sat listened and learned.DreamWarrior
The 12 Steps of Al-Anon
  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
