Hello!
I went into AA, back in 1987. I went to my meetings faithfully, got my 90 day pin. I worked the Steps for a long time, and though I don't go t meetings anymore, I still work through the 12 steps.
Because of all my illnesses, especially chronic back pain, I just can't sit through a meeting. I end up on so much pain, but I still read my daily devotional, and talk to my friends on the phone.
I'm so grateful, to be sober!!! I come from a long line of alcoholics, and I'm the 1st in my family to get sober. I lost 2 uncles to alcohol, and a bunch of cousins.
Hang in there, and keep on working the steps, they work!!!

I go to Emotions Anonymous and that's a 12 step program. Ever since I started going last year, I've been keeping up with it regularly. I can't say that I've actually worked all the steps though. I do find the group very helpful.

At one time I had stumbled upon an online version of the big book for AA. Let's see if the link is still good:

That may help get you started. If you need any other links, feel free to ask me.

                   THE TWELVE STEPS OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS
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.

6). Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

7). Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

8). Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9). Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure     them or others.

10). Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11). Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12). 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.
