Our Experience with 12-Step Programmes

The promises common to all 12step programmes have come true for many of us. We have experienced miracles in our lives as a result of working the twelve steps in our chosen programme(s), and we hope that you will experience similar miracles in your life. You may have been attracted to this site by its negative themes such as suicide, anger, addiction, depression and feelings of desperation.  Most of us trod a similar path before arriving here. If so, we hope that your valued visit here will lead to a positive outcome for you, and your friends and family.

A note from Paul M, webmaster of 12steps.co.nz

A twelve-step program was instrumental in my recovery from a debilitating rock bottom in my life.

My Gratitude

This site is a token of the gratitude I feel for what the people in 12 steps recovery programmes so freely share with me. I doubt I will ever fully repay the freedom and happiness I experience now.

My Commitment

In gratitude, for the help shared freely with me, I solemly make the following declaration:

I am responsible... When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of a 12-step program always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.

Adapted from "The Toronto Declaration"

As my precious Mum says, " 'tis loving and giving the makes life worth living."
