AUG 22, 18 .. STEP EIGHT

Welcome to August, the 8th month of the year, and Step 8.

Step 8 : Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willling to make amends to them all.

Step 8 is another of the 'action steps'. We take-the-action to pick up a pen / pencil along with some paper and make a written list of all persons we had harmed.

The action verb in Step 8 is willing. Before beginning to work the suggested 12-steps of recovery, in Chapter 5, How It Works, we decided that we wanted what AA has to offer and were also willing to go-to-any-length to get it.

When at Step 8, I ask that a member write down at least one name from their Step 4 Inventory and immediately make an amend to that person. We discuss this individual and how to go about one's amend to them.

Taking this immediate action gets the Step 8 and 9 process into action.

Which is to say, that Steps 8 and 9 are worked together.
