Step Twelve

 

Having had a spiritual awakening I TRY! To carry this message to alcoholics

 

"God can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves” if we let Him!!

 

Step 12 is another action step working with other alcoholics who are still active

 

This takes a lot of action to work with our fellow alcoholics who are still out there

 

This is why we learned how to live and practice all Twelve Steps in our daily lives

 

Carrying the message is the very basics of recovery to us all who seek a new life

 

What I do to carry the message is very simple because I stick to the basics of AA

 

Sobriety is all about my disease of alcoholism that is not cured and never will be

 

If I stray to far for the teachings I will be lost again to suffer the misery of my past

 

God asked me to give up one thing! Alcohol! And he took my desire to drink away

 

Just as soon as I got humble and honest enough to ask Him to do this for me

 

This took some time because I had to find out who I was a step four had to be done

 

I found out also who I could become thru the practice of the teachings of the 12 steps

 

AA gave me a new life and the tools to use with that new life and by getting active

 

I will stay sober and have a useful life filled with the same hope as those who came before me

 

The very basics of AA is to reach out to others who suffer from our disease

 

Show them the unconditional love and friendship we got when we came into the halls

 

12-step work is also being the coffee maker picking up the chairs at the end of the meeting

 

Talk with others who are new open meetings sharing at the podium and cleaning up after

 

We always go on commitments in a group so we all feel part of and not alone in recovery

 

As time passed we get more active with service work become a secretary or treasurer

 

Groups have many jobs to be filled these online meetings need support its easy to chair one

 

Or greet people coming in God works thru people stay with the basics recovery will carry on
