First Step worksheets or exercises?

Hey, there:
I'm looking to hook up my young friend with a 1st step worksheet or writing exercise. Anyone have any online sources?

Yup.

I've got a suggestion on what I feel is the ultimate premier step working guide:

The Narcotics Anonymous Step Working Guides, Softcover, 124 pages

Hazelden -- The Narcotics Anonymous Step Working Guides

This workbook presents questions to the reader in an introspective manner. This workbook is solid gold for a sponsor because it encourages the sponsee to really work the steps. I swear by its effectiveness and at $8 its a steal.

I buy the books and give them to newcomers I feel will use it.

Hey Bear, good on you.

I can provide you with the links to a few different options. The first is a step guide that was available well before the NAWS approved versions were published. The second is another tried and tested guide to the first three steps called the Allentown Guide. It might be the most Spartan of the options, and it doesn't include the process for all 12 steps, but I have a trusted friend with 18 years clean who highly recommends it as a guide that sticks most stringently to the core meaning of the steps. The third is NAWS approved.

Well, that was weird. I don't know if it was a typo or if something about the link converted strangely, but I'll try pasting it again here. I've just tried editing it for correction, but I can't get on the edit feature. Your link leads to the same thing I was sharing.

Although we're working an AA program, his primary DOC was opiates, so NAWS step guides will help! Thanks everyone!
Joe, I'll PM you my email addy...or you can send it through my profile page.

I'd still recomend the NA step guide. It doesn't cost that much and is available at most meetings or I'm sure you can find it online for under 10 bucks. It is a nice booklet and really helps work the steps. You can probably find it on Amazon for even less. Take care.

Just in case anyone would like to hear A.A. speakers sharing their
experience, strength, & hope on the 12 Steps from the Big Book...
