Alcoholics Anonymous have decided to change a few steps and add an overlooked “13th” step.
For centuries the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step program has helped countless addicts, but the nonprofit organization has revisited its approach and literature.
“After failing to cure any atheists, the nonprofit decided it was time for changes,” said spokeswoman Hi my name is Jane. “We really messed this up, there are a few elephants in the room that we needed to address.” What the former alcoholic is talking about is the gigantic emphasis AA puts on god, and that none of the steps actually say “quit drinking.” Jane says, “We shuffled the steps around so that step one remains the same, but we added a step after one that specifies the alcoholic to stop drinking l, therefore step two is now three and so on.” On the topic of religion playing a key role in the recovery Jane (who was made famous by the fact that a band was named after her struggles) said, “Yes steps 4,6,7,8,12 and 13 are being revamped to allow for other beliefs, we chose something that appeals to both alcoholics and atheists.”
