You can be an Atheist and do 12 step, you have to come up with a personal way to conceptualize your "Higher Power", such as viewing it as your Inner Potential or Higher Self. Also, find others in 12 step who are Atheist or Agnostic to gain some insight, support, and perspective. Defining your own Higher Power will make a big difference. Don't let the Higher Power stuff deter you, twelve step works for many people, & they say you should go to at least 8 meetings (I think) before giving up. I know some people are very into GOD as the Higher Power, especially the God of the Bible but, don't let that stumble your progress, they are doing what works for them you need to do what works for you. Good Luck!
