News and upcoming events:
Dec 12, 2014 Recently, I was contacted by Al-Anon and told that use of their logo and name on non-approved literature was not approved and they asked me to remove it. 

So, I removed the logo, and changed the name of the idiot's guide and the content of the guide so it wouldn't use their name.

I'm sorry for not letting you know sooner.

Kind regards, Steve
Dec 12, 2014 The new website is now up and running. 
Please see it for the latest information.


This site was created for people who want a deeper recovery than they've gotten in the rooms of their program.  They want the 9th step or 10th step promises.  But they didn't know how to get them.

Or, maybe they are still living in the bedevilments and want a way out.

Many of us have had a variety of sponsors, each of whom has had their own take on how to do the Steps.  Because of this, there has been a variety of quality in our own recoveries.

Big Book Awakenings, or BBA for short, was created to provide a mechanism to thoroughly take a sponsee or a group of people through the 12 Steps as written in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.  And it was created so that someone who has worked the Steps the BBA way will have been given the necessary tools to then take someone else through the Steps the same way.

Use the menu on the left to learn more or contact Tyla .

Getting Started lists what we use to work the steps.

Tools are worksheets and audios we use to assist us in the steps.  Select the step you're on for the needed tools.

Audios provide supported audios in working the steps.

At BBA Meetings, those who have done the Big Book Steps speak on their experience.

In BBA Workshops, workshop leaders take participants through the Steps.

Carrying the Message has audios of BBA people speaking at other meetings.

Personal Stories of recovery per the Big Book and Big Book Awakening has been added.  If you have a story, let us know.
