Tony A’s 12 Steps

1. We admitted that we were powerless over the effects of living with alcoholism and that our lives
    had become unmanageable.

2. We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could bring us clarity.

3. We made a decision to practice self love and to put trust in a Higher Power.

4. We made a searching and blameless inventory of our parents because, in essence we had                become them.

5. We admitted to a Higher Power, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of
    our childhood abandonment.

6. We were entirely ready to begin the healing process with the aid of our Higher Power.

7. We humbly asked our Higher Power to help us with our healing process.

8. We became willing to open ourselves to receive the unconditional love of our Higher Power.

9. We became willing to accept our own unconditional love by understanding that our Higher
    Power loves us unconditionally.

10. We continued to take a personal inventory and to love and approve of ourselves.

11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with our Higher
     Power, praying only for knowledge of it's will for us and the power to carry it out.

12. We have had a spiritual awakening as a result of taking these steps, and we continue to love
      ourselves and to practice these principals in all our affairs.
