Step Five



“Admitted to God,

to ourselves,

and to another

human being

the exact nature

of our wrongs.”

BB p 59



Our secrets will get us drunk.

God already knows,

select a person who has heard it all before,

has been there and done that,  and who will not judge you.

Most importantly,

make sure you are not lying to yourself,

that the focus is on your moral inventory, not theirs.

Today, begin to clear the wreckage of the past by

working the steps, in order, with someone to guide you

and as honestly and thoroughly as you can.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
