The Steps

April 10, 2018 by Kayce L.

Like a loud alarm clock, the First Step brings us to semi-consciousness—although at this point, we may not be sure whether we want to climb out of bed or maybe sleep for just five more minutes. The gentle hand shaking our shoulders as we apply the Second and Third Steps causes us to stand up, stretch, and yawn. We need to wipe the sleep from our eyes to write the Fourth Step and share our Fifth. But as we work the Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Steps, we begin noticing a spring in our step and the start of a smile on our lips. Our spirits sing in the shower as we take the Tenth and Eleventh Steps. And then we practice the Twelfth, leaving the house in search of others to awaken.

      Yes they may have meant to be suggestive but they ” bloody ain’t” Words of my favorite speaker Micky Bush . Page 20 of Big book .. ” if your a alcoholic who wants to get over it you may already be asking what do I have to do ” ? Pg 30 book ” we HAD to fully concede to our inner most self that were alcoholic this is the first step in recovery ” ! We had to is not Suggestive. I’ll pick it up seven years in a few I just can’t believe how much better things of gotten in my life. Currently chair the big book meeting at my home group and it’s a great way to get back into our great book . Sobriety rocks , it’s the free buzz

    This is all so true I have to admit that I am still an alcoholic and can not do my day until I read and pray today. Thanks for this website app. It’s helping me to start my day off right. Today is my first day sober so God be with me.
