The good stuff is covered, this is also the first action, face to face with another human step. If you have done well, earnest, gotten ‘it’ out, whatever all ‘it’ is, there is an immense sense of freedom. So my E,S, & H, will be cautionary. This relief will carry you quite a ways, but unless action continues, it will wear off. The healing of the next steps has not yet become operative. It lasted me a year and half, drunk again. (And sober again, into step 9.)
Anotherwords, this relief and freedom, the wise fellow would invest well. Into continuing onward.September 27, 2013 at 10:19 pm #3981656
Time to move this one to the top… someone out there is probably ready to do their fifth step!!
I did mine as the book said as well: “We have a written inventory and we are prepared for a long talk… …We pocket our pride and go to it, illuminating every twist of character, every dark cranny of the past.”
It sounds simple and it was, it was also about a four hour discussion and when it was done, I had almost all of the fifth step promises (they’re in the book right after the sentences I quoted). A verrry liberating experience, but again, it is not the be all – end all. All I really did was once again acknowledge that most of my tools for living weren’t working too well, luckily six and seven keep moving us forward and start to help us replace those tools with much better ones!

Just getting to as much of it as I could see at the time in the first one, and asking God if there was anything I was missing at the end was what I did.
