The Twelve Steps to Sobriety and the History of How it Worksby Glenn Langohr
New Edited Edition: The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous is an incredible book. Since 1939 millions have read it to find a path to sobriety and more. The history of where the 12 steps came from will help give a deeper understanding to all that this book has to offer. After thousands of hours in Big Book studies and walking dozens of others through its pages, I am offering a history reference to where the spiritual steps came from that will hopefully help you see more of what this process involves. I welcome your feedback and look forward to the many promises this book holds for those of us who have used it and those just beginning to. An excerpt from Bill W:
"My depression deepened unbearably and finally it seemed to me as though I were at the very bottom of the pit. I still gagged badly at the notion of a Power greater than myself, but finally, just for the moment, the last vestige of my proud obstinacy was crushed. All at once I found myself crying out, If there is a God, let Him show Himself! I am ready to do anything, anything!
Suddenly, the room lit up with a great white light. I was caught up into an ecstasy, which there are no words to describe. It seemed to me, in the mind's eye, that I was on a mountain and that a wind not of air but of spirit was blowing. And then it burst upon me that I was a free man. Slowly the ecstasy subsided. I lay on the bed, but now for a time I was in another world, a new world of consciousness. All about me and through me there was a wonderful feeling of Presence, and I thought to myself, 'So this is the God of the preachers! A great peace stole over me and I thought, No matter how wrong this seems to be, they are still all right. Things are all right with God and His world."

Meet the Author
Glenn Langohr has a purpose: he writes to shine a light inside our prison systems and to help others turn their lives around. Before becoming a best selling author, Glenn Langohr ran away from a broken home and entered the drug war with abandon. Business with the Mexican Mafia and Hell's Angels became a way of life until the Criminal Justice system interrupted him. In prison he was involved in riots and spent years in the hole. From solitary confinement he started writing and hasn't stopped since. Now, he is an usher at his church, speaks as a guest Lecturer at colleges and writes articles for newspapers. "I want to show the world and the students and leaders of tomorrow, that we are only building bigger criminals by locking up low level offenders. In prison, an addiction is bred into an affliction much harder to escape." Help him show the world redemption is possible, buy and share his books.
