The 12-Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous offers many “promises” of recovery. The promises provide a two-fold solution to recovery; one is spiritual, describing the spiritual changes when a recovering person works the 12-Steps. The changes include a sense of peace, freedom, and happiness.
Secondly, AA members who work the steps are promised that many of the challenges experienced during a life of substance misuse will disappear. For example, fear, regret, and self-seeking will fade away. The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous describes these promises as occurring sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly, but they “will always materialize if we work for them.” The promises can inspire newcomers struggling with substance use disorders and have hope that there is a solution within immediate reach. The AA promises can inspire recovery, especially for newcomers. The Big Book mentions the promises as “Being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.” Some AA members report the promises manifesting early on, while others experience them gradually.
