The Twelve Steps in Plain English

(that even I can understand!):

1.  Alcohol will kill me.

2.  There's a power that wants me to live.

3.   Do I want to live or die?  (if you want to die, stop here)

4.   Write about how I got to where I am.

5.   Tell another person all about me (Let God listen in.).

6.   Want to change.

7.    Ask a Power greater than me to help me change.

8.    Write down who I've hurt.

9.    Fix what I can without hurting anyone else.

10.   Accept that I'm human and will screw up.  Fix it immediately.

11.   Ask a power greater than me to show me how to live.

12    Keep doing 1 through 11 and pass it on.
