The TOOLS OF SCAA RECOVERY are: Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, The AA 12 Steps, The Carb Manager App and Website, Prayer and Meditation, Sponsorship, Service and Fellowship –including reaching out frequently to others in our fellowship via chat, email, text, or phone
The text in the AA Big Book is what fuels our recovery and helps us to find the solution.
The 12 Steps are used by just about every successful recovery group.
The 12 Steps of SCAA – adapted from AA
Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over sugar and carbs—that our lives had become unmanageable.
Step 2: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Step 6: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Step 7: Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
Step 9: Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Step 10: Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to sugar and carb addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
The Carb Manager is a free app for your electronic device and has a website for your computer. It aids us in our daily KETO based meal planning and selection.
Just like talking to a trusted friend, we use prayer and mediation to develop a close and constant relationship with our Higher Power
Service and Fellowship with others keeps us accountable for our actions and avaialable to help others. This includes reaching out frequently to others in our fellowship via chat, email, text, or phone.
