Step Eight



8. Made a list

of all persons

we had harmed,

and became willing

to make amends

to them all”


BB p 59


If one was diligent and thorough while completing the Fourth Step

the list required for Step Eight should be complete.

The most important part, the most important words

in this step are ‘ and became willing ‘ .

This means every name should be on the list

and the amends will come if your Higher Power

deems them necessary.

This exercise becomes most meaningful

when we omit no person,

even if we do not remember their names.

Remember, it is not about them,

it is about your willingness to change

your old behaviors and atone for past sins.

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.
