The 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous were written by founders Bill W. and Dr. Bob Smith. The Steps offer simple, straightforward guidance to men and women hoping to lead sober lives. For over 75 years, these Steps have guided millions, helping them live lives of hope rather than lives of quiet desperation. These Steps have been adopted by many groups since 1934, including other substance recovery groups, Al-Anon, Overeaters Anonymous, Codependency Anonymous and many others.
The interesting articles attached to each of these steps was written by Fr. Bill Wigmore to give more insight into the Steps, their purpose and the struggles that some feel while learning them or following them.
