    I did my 5th step on Saturday. I was nervous and scared before I did it. After I did it I felt good for the rest of the day and most of Sunday but late yesterday evening I had this intense saddness come over me. Has this happened to anybody else after doing this step?




    I finished my 5th step about a month ago – I wasn’t going to meet with my sponsor again to move through 6 and 7 for another week after that.

    That was one of the hardest weeks I ever had. Irritable, snapping, restless, sleepless, tired – all my character defects were sitting on the table glaring at me. I just wanted to sleep and forget about life. (The holiday’s and shopping etc did not help much).

    Once we moved through 6 and 7, and I began putting together my list at step 8 ( more action)- I felt better, and have since.

    My suggestion – get through 6 and 7 and start working on 8.

    I hope this is helpful.
