Step 12

Having made an effort to practice these principles in all our affairs, we tried to carry this message to other compulsive gamblers

The 12th step is the culmination of the entire Recovery Program.

The success of this step is determined by the effort of the members to practice these principles in their lives and in their efforts to convey to other compulsive gamblers that they can stop gambling through the practice of the Gamblers Anonymous program and thereby achieve self-respect, personal and spiritual growth. The emphasis here is not on the results, but on the effort a member makes.
