Step Twelve:
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.
The joy of living is the theme of A.A.’s Twelfth Step,
and action is its key word. Here we turn outward toward our fellow alcoholics who are still in distress.
Here we experience the kind of giving that asks no rewards. Here we begin to practice all Twelve Steps of
the program in our daily lives so that we and those
about us may find emotional sobriety. When the
Twelfth Step is seen in its full implication, it is really
talking about the kind of love that has no price tag on
it. Our Twelfth Step also says that as a result of practicing all the Steps, we have each found something
called a spiritual awakening. To new A.A.’s, this often
seems like a very dubious and improbable state of affairs.
