How do I do my 12 steps

Where do I begin my stepwork. I am new to this and I have no clue where I should begin.


Hello, I don’t do the steps myself but didn’t want to read and run. I believe it is part of the AA process. Welcome by the way!


Goggle meetings near me…then go…the steps being done will take care of itself.

Bwgin by getting a sponsor. Ask anyone. If they cant do it theyll find someone who can. Ask anyone you dont have to be fishing buddies first thats a misconception.

Go from there once you have a sponsor. Good luck reach out any time.


In order to get a sponsor that can take you through the Book (which in turn takes you thru the steps), youd need to find some meetings near you :slight_smile: i think its great that u want to begin the steps. Welcome to the forum also by the way! This is a wonderful community full of support :slight_smile: hope u stick around


You’ll want to find a sponsor and they can walk you thru the step work.

You can google " (AA/N/A/etc) meetings near me" try out a few meetings. Every meeting has its own vibe. Ask someone who has what you want…i.e. happy, years of sobriety, you really related to something they shared in a meeting. You can also go into the first meeting and just announce youre looking for a sponsor and willing people will reach out.

Good luck!


I went to a lot of meetings and one day I heard a woman share who was talking about the 12 steps in a way I’d never heard before. I asked her out for coffee (even though I couldn’t afford to pay for hers and I had water. She didnt seem to notice.)

She told me about the type of meeting where she had found her solution. I ran to one immediately. It was there that I finally understood how to work the steps.


How is it going?

Meetings… meetings and more meetings…if your still not sure go to more meetings!!


Meetings are good, but someone once said, “What are you doing in a 12-step program if you’re not doing the 12 steps?”
