Step 12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to those who still suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Here we are given a chance to bring the message of recovery to those who still live in the lonely prison of OCD.
