Alcoholics Anonymous


The Anti-12 Steps of AA:

1. I declared that I have total control over my drinking and that I can completely manage my life and still drink.
(We admitted we were powerless over alcohol — that our lives had become unmanageable.—AA)

2. I Learned that I need no one, as drinking helps me maintain my happiness and sanity.
(Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.—AA)

3. I Decided to harness the benefits (as I understand them) of booze in any form I chose to use.
(Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understood Him.—AA)

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of all others who don’t use pot.
(Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.—AA)

5. Admitted to no one, including myself, any of my wrongs or negative aspects of drinking, no matter how evident.
(Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.—AA)

6. I became entirely ready to defend, excuse, and justify my actions, using personal attacks on others (if necessary) and to minimize any mistake.
(Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.—AA)

7. Boldly declare that I have no shortcomings (while believing anything wrong I did couldn’t be forgiven).
(Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.—AA)

8. Made a list of all persons that had (or that I thought) harmed me and searched for opportunities to collect on those debts.
(Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.—AA)

9. Collected whatever I felt that I was owed whenever possible, even though doing so may cause injury or harm to someone else.
(Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.—AA)

10. Continued to take an inventory of others’ wrongs against me and promptly collected on them when possible.
(Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.—AA)

11. Sought through experimentation, expert opinions, partying, and the advice of my using friends, a better, stronger, and longer buzz. I search only for more knowledge of new and different forms of alcohol to use and the means to do so without consequences.
(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.—AA)

12. Having an enjoyable experience with booze, I tried to carry this message to other suffering sober people to lead them to drink with me and practice these principles in all their affairs.
(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—AA)

Understanding how the the addiction talks

Famous military leaders have said that to defeat your enemy, you must know how your enemy thinks. The Anti-12 steps help do this and even more. By learning the anti-steps, it’s possible to see the process for addiction-forming thoughts and reasoning. It’s possible to understand and even hear the types of thoughts addicts are having, even if they say them in their head differently – the outcome is the same, and the step is still on target. Learn what the enemy is.
