In order to know if you are working step twelve properly, simply answer the following question:
Had a spiritual awakening as a result of working the 12 steps?
Do I carry this message of recovery to other alcoholics?
Do I make a sincere and disciplined effort to practice these principles in all my affairs?
If the answer is no, you have not yet completed step twelve.
If the answer is yes, go all the way back to the beginning and do it again!
