How the Steps Changed My Life

This month’s special section is “How the Steps Changed My Life.” To celebrate our new book, Our Twelve Steps, a brand-new collection of Step stories, AA members share their favorite experiences about how the Twelve Steps have helped change their lives.

Grapevine Daily Quote April 21

“Some people think God made life just for happiness, but I find myself unable to share that view. I think he made life for growth and that he permits pain as the touchstone of it all. Happiness -- at the very least, satisfaction -- is a byproduct of really trying to grow. And seasons of real joy are but the occasional byproducts of the process. Which, in eternity, will be the eventual fulfillment. Meantime, we seem to be pilgrims on a road -- one which you and I are completely confident leads into the arms of God.”

Always Remember

This morning at a meeting near the beach, a woman in her 30s shared with tears in her eyes that she now had only one day sober after relapsing for two months.

Showing Up

I had a stepfather who was as good to me as any father could have been. He and I used to say that there was nothing between us that shared DNA could have made any better.

A Good Thing

“Hmm ... how about this?” he said. “Do you have a copy of the ‘Twelve and Twelve’? Read the first chapter on Step One and write down your thoughts about each paragraph.

A Mother’s Day Wish

Two years before I got to AA, I gave birth to a baby boy. He was beautiful and healthy, but I was not so beautiful or ready to take on the responsibility of raising a child. I gave him away.

We Stick to What Works

I had the chance to work with a man who had been attending a nearby Big Book Step Study meeting that I frequented from time to time.

So How Did I Get Here?

I’ve been sober for 41 years, and one of the things that had always bothered me about my recovery was not knowing what it was that brought me into AA.
