Study of these Steps is essential to progress in the Al-Anon program. The principles they embody are universal, applicable to everyone, whatever his personal creed. In Al-Anon, we strive for an ever-deeper understanding of these Steps, and pray for the wisdom to apply them to our lives.


  1.
We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.

  2.
Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

  3.
Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

  4.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

  5.
Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
