1-We admitted we were powerless over the length of time it takes for an Open Directory to allow our submissions and that Google had become unmanageable.

2-Came to believe that Google is greater than ourselves and doesn’t want us restored to sanity.

3-Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care Danny Sullivan.

4-Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of SMO.

5-Admitted to Sphinn, SEO Refugee and to another Search Engine Optimizer the exact nature of our wrongs.

6-Were entirely ready to have Marketing forums remove all these defects of character.

7-Humbly asked Google to tell us what we can and can’t do.

8-Made a list of all persons we provided paid links to, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9-Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except for the ones Google doesn’t know about yet.

10-Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly griped about it.

11-Sought through forums and blogs to improve our conscious contact with the experts as we understood them, asking only for knowledge of the truth for us and the power to carry that out.

12-Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to SEO Newbies, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

I have found that it’s much easier to work through these 12 steps if you have a few Mojitos beforehand. :)

My friend had this same exact post on his blog a few months ago. It must be a popular article.
