Well-intentioned people, such as Bono and John Lennon, have for years implored us to stop killing each other in much the same manner that family members have begged alcoholics to stop drinking. Perhaps we are addicted to war and violence and, like alcoholics, we need more than to simply stop; we need to find a new design for living. The 12 Steps have been instrumental in changing the lives of over 3 million alcoholics in over 77 countries, regardless of religious faith. Those who once knew only chaos, pain, and suffering have discovered peace as a result of these steps. Consider the steps as a recipe for peace. Should they fail to produce the desired results, we will refund your misery and you may return to killing at your leisure.
