    Just finished my fith, 4 hours. Like all of you I’m definately relieved.
    My sponsor helped me very very much.
    He made me aware of things I could not see very well.
    It is a gift I wish to all.



    I’m working hard to get to this one…


    Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

    This step I fought with, because it sounded like confessing and at the time I had some very strong opinions about religion….what I had to do was figure out where these opinions stemmed from. “childhood” I won’t go into detail about that but once I made that realization I was able to continue. I did this step with my addictions counselor because I new him the longest and I trusted him. I found that this step was like peeling an onion,…at first I would only deal with the outer layers until I felt comfortable enough to dig deeper. If I were to try and guess the time span it took to deal with my ghosts I would say months,….how many I don’t know. In my case my bottom was one step away from a pine box or prison,…the insanity of my disease robbed me of it all. So considering how long it took me to hit bottom I thought it would take a good amount of time to crawl out.
    (I was like a child learning to walk,..baby steps) At meetings I stuck to the old timers like glue,…soaking up all they shared,..even the stuff I didn’t like to hear. My recovery has been one heck of a journey,…but it was all worth it. This step freed me of my demons.
