12 Steps of Drug Warriors Anonymous

Drug prohibitionists are addicted - to power. But there is hope, even for the most depraved. One day at a time. No stinking thinking. And the Twelve Steps...

1. We admitted we were powerless over other people's addictions - that our government had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a power greater than our legislation could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of the people, and we understood them.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to the people, to ourselves, and to the national media, the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. Were entirely ready to have the people remove all these defects of character.

7. Humbly asked them to remove us from power.

8. Made a list of all persons the drug war 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 the people, praying only for knowledge of their will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a political awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other prohibitionists and to practice these principles in all our current affairs.
