Step 6 address the issue of our readiness to have removed the defects of character we identified in Step 4. After the hard work of the previous two steps, this step seems quick and easy. Not much is required in terms of action, but a great deal is required emotionally and spiritually. This Step asks us whether we are willing or not to to behave different.
If we do not recognize a problem, we cannot solve it. Step 6 allows us to see the problem. Step 6 focuses our attention on our willingness to give up defects of character, even defects that we enjoy. But we know that all character defects can lead us back to our addictions, even the character defects that we like. Step 6 allows us the ability to see even those pleasurable defects and encourages us to find a spiritual solution.
