  • to bring to fruition sexual or romantic advances upon a newcomer, or person with less sobriety, after one has completed the twelve written steps; to take advantage of a fellow Twelve Step member who has less sobriety.
    My sponsor said that a proper 13th step requires that one has completed all the steps before hitting on newcomers - half measures avail us nothing.

  • Find the newest member of the opposite sex (or of your sexual preference, take 'em home, and show 'em "How It Works." Term modified slightly in NA in Traverse City, MI, by the couple who started the 1st NA chapter "up North." We now live in Holland, MI. "How It Works" is one of the main readings @ the beginning of the meetings, giving the newcomer a general idea of the purposes & principles of NA.
