By making direct amends to the person harmed the temptation to skirt the issue because of embarrassment or pain is avoided.

Recovered Podcast

Making the list is one thing. Become willing to actually make amends to those harmed is another. It can be a very humbling, but growing experience, to actually admit wrong-doing, especially to the person harmed. But the process can relieve those trying to recover from so much guilt!

Step 7 - Recovered 1111 show art Step 7 - Recovered 1111

Recovered Podcast

We have taken the very difficult moral inventory and admitted to our wrongdoings to ourselves, our higher power and to another human being. It’s now time to remove those wrongdoings from our everyday lives and we need help to ensure that we completely remove our shortcomings and don’t continue to fall victim to any of addiction’s ill effects.

Step 6 - Recovered 1109 show art Step 6 - Recovered 1109

Recovered Podcast

The sixth step can bring about significant and very noticeable change when it comes to the thought patterns and behavior that have been with us for a long time. It doesn’t happen overnight obviously, and there is nothing like perfection when working the twelve steps of AA. It’s about making a commitment and being content with patient improvement.

Recovered Podcast

Step Four has prepared you for step five, and by finding the courage to overcome that fear of rejection or the shame of your inventory, you experience honesty on a deeper level than in your first step of admission, and you break the pattern of denial that often plagues those suffering with alcoholism.

Step 4 - Recovered 1105 show art Step 4 - Recovered 1105

Recovered Podcast

While working on our step inventories we get a new perspective on the bigger picture, on patterns, selfishness, our responsibility in situations and in this process we are building up an accurate self-appraisal with true self-worth as the reward.

Step 3 - Recovered 1103 show art Step 3 - Recovered 1103

Recovered Podcast

When working on step three we take a look at how acting on self-will means behaving with the exclusion of any consideration for others, focusing only on what we want and ignoring the needs and feelings of others. While we were busy pursuing these impulses, we mostly left a path of destruction behind us, and we definitely lost touch with our conscience and a Higher Power.

Recovered Podcast

This is the beginning of the end, in a way. You will end your old life and begin your fresh one, committed to faith – faith in whatever you choose.

The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

In Michigan, we tend to do things different.

We, in Michigan, have small table discussion meetings

We, Michiganders, don’t usually have cakes at sobriety anniversaries

Apparently, we in Michigan, don’t go to International Conferences, more on this later.

And, we have Barefoot meetings, Russ’ favorite

- “Barefoot meeting” is a term used to describe a meeting where discussion is not focused on a particular topic; each member who shares chooses what he or she wishes to discuss.

Let’s keep the discussion on the solution.  

Greg, you suggested this format, you get to lead the segment.  Greg, where do you want to start?

We have calls
