NA: The 3 Essentials
Firstly, an acceptance of powerlessness over addiction, and a willingness to turn to a higher power to remove weaknesses and to guide the path to recovery.
Secondly, a willingness to make a full and honest list of people wronged while using and abusing drugs, and striving to make a full amends whenever possible to do so without inflicting harm.
Thirdly, using the wisdom of a sponsor to integrate the lessons of Narcotics Anonymous into everyday life, and when sufficient recovery and insight is gained, giving back to the organization by either becoming a sponsor or helping fellow addicts in some other way.
