Which step are you working on and which steps do you do daily if you have worked them all? Please include anything you want about any step, which was hardest, anything that happened as a result to help others see that the steps have a reason. Thanks

let me see... first off, i should probably say that i don't recommend anyone work their program, or the steps the way i do... only because i tend to do things bassacwards and what works for me, more than likely could kill you... with that said the first 3 steps are an automatic for me daily today... i already know and believe those first 3 steps pertain to me, even before i open my eyes and start my day... but it took years of buttin heads with myself and everyone else before i surrendered enough to be able to do that... i was in and around the recovery rooms and the program for nearly 20 years before i quit relapsing... i worked my first honest 5th step with nearly 3 years of sobriety... i had done numerous 5th steps in treatment centers, or because a sponsor said i needed to... but it wasn't until i asked a preacher in 2008 (that came twice a week to the prison i was living in), that i got truthful, and i told him all the stuff i can't tell you guys... the only reason i was able to do that is because i knew i would never see him again, and i wanted a clean slate... that very act opened a door for me and a new way of life... i've since worked all the steps and do a mini 10th step daily... i always keep the 11th step fresh in my mind and stand ready to help anyone that may need me.

Well, I have taken all the steps.

Today I do the first three, and the last three.

For me, ten kind of encompasses the rest of them.

Think for me it gets to be a way of living and I just don't even realize it.

My first thorough fourth and fifth step was the most awesome thing to me. It was just like the BB said it would be.

The Steps and JD - hmmm well I am back at step 4 new things have cropped up some old has passed away
I dont recommend my way to anyone else either but there have been some circumstances and yet through it all it was possible to stay clean and sober

I do pray and meditate ask God (my Higher Power) His will for me
I thank Him each day steps 1-3 automatic I cant He can I think Ill let Him
daily and sometimes hour by hour just letting go of my ways and asking God to show me the right way

Helping others staying after meetings - its all part of the steps to be ready when anyone any where reaches out and today I can do that. I just came from a meeting while ago a late Night meeting

4 & 5 theres always more crap to let go of and if I am not careful it can build up
6 7 8 willingness to face the music

9 facing the music

10 11 12 maintenance steps keeping me honest
Calling people giving others my number

I once believed a lie (that the magic just happened in the meetings ) The magic happens in the meetings as a result of someone working the steps working with others and sharing whats been freely given as a result of the 12 steps...ya know I used to wait hoping praying by some kind of osmosis this magic would happen

The magic happens today and my face lights up when I hear a newcomer say I made it 2 days them 2 days is the hardest I remember that and its important I remember that so I don't start thinking I can handle it again
