On Tuesday, March 15, 2016, The Recovery Topic is Step 9. Made a list of persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
Bill Wilson writes, “Good judgement, a careful sense of timing, courage and prudence – these are qualities needed when we take Step 9.” It is a painful, humbling step. But it is also rewarding. AA’s Twelve Promises are said to come true with the Ninth Step.
This is an action step. We determine, after prayer and consultation with our sponsor, the specific amends we need to make to each person we have harmed. And, of course, we make the actual amends to each person on our Eighth Step list.
Let’s talk about this solution. Tap Speakpipe (especially if you are outside the Unites States) or call 1-734-288-7510 and answer the following question(s):
Who was the first person you made an amends to?
What was their reaction?
What did you learn?
