Have you ever been curious about AA? See a lot of people getting sober in a 12 step program but don’t understand the “God” thing? You’re not alone. In fact almost everyone who has ever dawned the door of a 12 step meeting has had the same thought or notion. 

 

On this week’s episode we’re joined by our dear friend Steven who explains to us how he worked the 12 steps as a non-believer. We get into the real nitty gritty of what the 12 steps are and how there is no one way to work them. 

 

If you’re in AA this might be a refreshing perspective on the steps. If you’re not in AA, you may find this answers a lot of the questions you have about AA and getting sober. 

 

And if that wasn’t intriguing enough, Steven was also nice enough to share his warstory with us and…. He did not disappoint. Hear what it was like for him and what made him finally decide to get sober. 

 

Thanks Steven for sharing your story!

 

Thanks Hellions! Remember you are the most important part of the show.
