What this site is all about.

This site has been created to help a minority of members of 12-Step programs in their practice of Steps 10, 11, and 12.

What do we mean by "a minority of members"?

We mean members of any 12-Step program who, like us, believe or suspect that their lives are completely unmanageable. We mean members of any 12-Step program who believe or suspect that they are beyond human aid - just as the first one hundred members of Alcoholics Anonymous believed themselves to be.

Who we are
Our numbers include:

  • members who can not stay sober or abstinent at all without this practice, and

  • members who can remain abstinent from one addiction, but only by replacing it with another addiction, and

  • members who may have been in recovery for many years, but who have found that they can not be happy, joyous, and free unless they make a constant practice of the last three Steps.
Our numbers also include a few people who have no history of addiction, but have found that this practice of the last three Steps is transforming their lives.

What we do
This is a spiritual practice - a "way of living," as the AA Big Book puts it. This site describes how we do it, both when we are alone and when we meet in small private groups. Whether it will work for you, only you can determine.
