The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous can help transform a person's life in a positive direction. However, most disobedient slaves who decide to join A.A. or other 12-step groups and earnestly follow their prescribed programs often become compliant, obedient slaves that slave masters and their proxies literally applaud. As a consequence, we had been inspired to rewrite the steps and traditions to help us avoid some well-lain traps.

We encourage members of Slaves Anonymous to become familiar with the steps that we read at meetings. You can practice the steps to live with autonomy and help create the conditions needed for liberation of your local communities. Please rewrite the steps to better serve your needs.
