* Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over God - that God's lives had become unmanageable
* Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than God could restore God to sanity
* Step 3 - Made a decision to turn God's will and God's lives over to the care of that other God, what ever that added up to
* Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of our God
* Step 5 - Admitted to the other God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our God's (Gods') wrongs
* Step 6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of God
* Step 7 - Humbly asked God to remove our God's (Gods') shortcomings
* Step 8 - Made a list of all Gods God had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all
* Step 9 - Made direct amends to God wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or other Gods
* Step 10 - Continued to take personal inventory and when God was wrong promptly admitted it
* Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God's God as we understood this particular God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for God and the power to AUDIT THAT TO KINGDOM COME
* Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we dropped the whole stupidity and concentrated on being nice to people, because that is hard enough
