Step Four Again

“Made a searching

and fearless

moral inventory

of ourselves.”

The first of the action steps,

the beginning of clearing away

the wreckage of the past,

knowing that the guilt, shame and remorse

for our drunken activities, if not properly resolved,

will be cause to drink again.

We can not just take an eraser and wipe the board clean,

we must write a list of those who we have harmed

and name the nature of our wrong

both physical and emotional.

Today, enjoy the sobriety

that working the steps has to offer.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

More Beneficial

“It is harder to go

to an enemy than to a friend,

but we find it much more

beneficial to us.

We go to him in a helpful

and forgiving spirit,

confessing our former

ill feeling and expressing

our regret.”

.

BB p 77

The whole concept of recovery from alcoholism

is based on the concept of cleaning our side of the street,

to become humble enough to admit our faults and

to develop a positive attitude that looks forward

to a life that is happy, joyous and free.

It is not about making the other fellow feel better

or to like us, it is about making us feel better about ourselves.

Guilt, shame and remorse will get us drunk again,

making amends will free us from the negative feelings

and allow us to move on towards serenity and peace of mind.

Today, make your amends and if the enemy wants to remain

an enemy, that is their choice, be satisfied that

your job has been done.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
