In 2007, developed password protected and encrypted journaling software for Windows XP that was designed to make it easier to work the 12 step program. It was called the Recovery Journal. It is still the only journal software that we provide that runs well on Windows XP. This software is free for all to use and distribute as long as it remains free of charge (except for reasonable distribution charges).

We do offer alternative versions for 12 step journal software on Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Mac OSX.

A brief description is provided below of the capabilities of the Windows XP version of the Recovery Journal software.

Two Components
With the Recovery Journal software, there are two components for the Windows desktop.

Journal Explorer - Browse your journals by date or by topics or searches that you define
Journal Editor - Record answers to 12 step questions or just keep a daily journal using a Rich Text Format (RTF) editor.

  • Review the 12 Steps
