What We Are Not

What 12steps.co.nz is NOT

Our individual 12 step journies have often taught us that it is sometimes easier to understand what we are by humbly accepting what we are not.

Some of the things that www.12steps.co.nz IS NOT are described here:

12steps.co.nz is NOT the founder

www.12steps.co.nz is NOT the founder of the 12 steps of recovery.

We are humbly grateful to to the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous as the originators of the 12 step programme of recovery.

It is NOT the goal of 12steps.co.nz to make money

The success of www.12steps.co.nz is measured by any gratitude expressed by people who find it useful.

If you have found this site useful we would be most grateful to receive your feedback.

Do NO Evil

Google helps people find happiness through this site. Therefore, we are guided by Google’s mantra of “Don’t be evil“, and by Google’s corporate Philosophy:

Google’s corporate philosophy

  1. Focus on the user and all else will follow.
  2. It’s best to do one thing really, really well.
  3. Fast is better than slow.
  4. Democracy on the web works.
  5. You don’t need to be at your desk to need an answer.
  6. You can make money without doing evil.
  7. There’s always more information out there.
  8. The need for information crosses all borders.
  9. You can be serious without a suit.
  10. Great just isn’t good enough.

While we agree with point 6, that money can be made without doing evil, it is NOT the goal of this website to make money.

12steps.co.nz is NOT commercial

12steps.co.nz is a non-commercial spiritual adventure, and a work in progress with purely idealistic objectives.

In alignment with Tradition 7, 12steps.co.nz is funded through its own contributions.

We will not accept any contributions, except from 12-steps groups we provide service to. We are always interested to learn how we can support any 12-step fellowship.
