Feb. 10, 2017 - Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Friday, Feb. 10, 2017
 
Today, review Step 10, the follow-up and maintenance of the Fourth Step of "moral inventory" infamy, with two purposes in mind: to detect any pending resurgence of any character defects that might derail my recovery, and to measure if I am proceeding with the program's integrity. In working for and progressing toward sobriety and maximum benefits, I must also be reminded that the program expects and deserves something from me in return: openness, honesty, humility, gratitude, and ethical 12th-stepping. Today, my 10th Step is designed to determine if I am working with gratitude and respect of the program's entire steps and traditions and, in return, that I am respecting the program through honesty, integrity and loyalty. And our common journey continues. Step by step. - Chris M., 2017
