I’m with YOU patricial… it is 4-9 rolled up into one. The hardest part for me was practicing it every day but as with anything else, the more you do it, the easier it gets, and the smaller the piles are at the end of the day! :bbj: In fact, many days there are NO piles at all! An amazing thing! Like all the other ones, just taking the actions is the most important thing, God is helping us with all the rest…

sometimes if it is a biggie,I write it out and share it with my sponser,and I usually see a pattern
most of the times I don`t write it out now
I also find steps 10 and 11 flow together after a whileDecember 3, 2013 at 2:48 pm #3981726

Step ten is working steps 4-9 in your head. You take a inventory 4 if you need to talk to someone about #5 look at what defect came up ask god to remove it 6,7 and then make amends 8,9. That is why you have to work the first nine to do this one. I do not see in the book where it says to write it out. At the end of the day you review your day to look at any other amends need to be made
Step 10 is definately not written, but I have on occasion written a reminder list.
But I did talk about it with an old timer (45yrs) and he said the same thing, ‘don’t go putting things in the Big Book that aren’t there.’
Its supposed to become the way I think, 4-5-6-7-8-9.
To become fluent in how a resentment breaks down into defects , how they arise from fear and from whence that fear came.
Personally I think it helps to go back over my 4th to review and learn the process, so I’m not a fan of burning it. It has no power over me anymore anyway.
