There are 30,000,000 people with untreated addiction and that is why we created this website.
We want to collect stories from the over 5,000,000 people that are already in recovery from
Alcoholism, Drug Addiction, Co Dependency, Eating Disorders, Dual Diagnosis, Sex, Trauma, etc.
We also want to collect testimonies, memorials from families and friends that live with or have lost loved ones to Addiction.
*All in an effort to help others with untreated addictions - identify - to who and what they are and bring hope and direction*

I hope this letter finds you well. My name is Kelly, and I want to personally thank you for taking time to read this message.
How many times have you been asked to do nothing more than share your experience, strength, and hope with the goal of having an impact on someone’s life—maybe someone locked in a life and death struggle.
The reason you have received this letter is to introduce you to 12stepplanet.com and invite you to take part in any capacity you choose.
12Stepplanet.com is a website designed to be a platform for stories of experience, strength and hope in the battle with addiction.
We all dream of making a difference…and with today’s communication resources it’s easier than ever.
Through the years I have heard long-timers and others with shares that made an impact,
I left wishing I knew them better and heard more of their stories.
Who knows exactly what people will identify with?
One alcoholic touches another alcoholic like no one else can…it’s been proven:
But the ex-problem drinker who has found this solution, who is properly armed with facts about himself, can generally win the entire confidence of another alcoholic in a few hours.
Until such an understanding is reached, little or nothing can be accomplished.
(From Page 18 of original manuscript written 1939 – In the chapter - There is a Solution)
The problem is that many alcoholics and addicts are never exposed to the solution – either locked in their homes or just not ready to ask someone face to face. Some people are physically challenged some are challenged by location. Never given the chance to identify, living in a world lonely with warped perception.
For this and so many other reasons—there has never been a better time to use the technology we have in reaching out to all who need help.
Through the years Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous have recorded thousands of stories through literature, audio tapes, CD’s and now both have online resources.
Different policies are evolving as today’s tools and instruments evolve.
The Solution & suggestions remain the same. The 12 Steps, Meetings, Sponsors, Home Groups, Commitments.
Tools have evolved.
We have created a website that is a tool not a solution
Our goal is to start archiving stories from local communities around the world.
Making Experience, Strength and Hope available 24/7.
Through the website.and 7 Facebook groups and Facebook 5 pages
The stories are Information that would have never been archived before to help people identify and get into action..
This project comes at an important time and could use your support–
Several people throughout the world have contributed 1000’s of hours of service.
Everyone here understands that modern communications can help save lives.
I am asking you to consider being involved by sharing your experience, strength and hope
There is much more I wanted to include in this letter about the writers, readers and their families and number of people who can be reached with today's technology. Please contact me for more details.
Just another grateful friend in recovery
