in 12 steps: sharing is the key to our success

Here’s a thorough piece by Bill from What…Me Sober? over at Sunrise Detox on sharing in meetings. It turns out there actually is a method to the madness, particularly with regard to sharing steps 4 and 5. Under the guise of Recovery Blogger, Bill does a yeoman’s job of taking these steps to the next levels in recovery.

But cleaning up this “wreckage of the past” has to be thorough. Sometimes we aren’t able to get it all on paper or out of our mouths the first time. That’s why serious recovering people usually find themselves doing two, three, or even more 4th and 5th Steps, and it’s why we “continued to take personal inventory” as outlined in Step Ten. As our sobriety develops, more things become apparent that we need to let go, and as our trust in the program grows, so does our willingness to do the work.

Highly readable and worth chewing on as the time passes.
