Find Addiction Rehabs Offers Guides on the 4th Step, 5th Step and 6th Step of AA
Boca Raton, Florida -
Find Addiction Rehabs (FAR), which is located in Boca Raton, FL, and offers helpful resources on addiction and rehab facilities, has recently published comprehensive guides for Steps 4, 5, and 6 of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). These guides offer people struggling with addiction an in-depth understanding of every step, including practical tips on how to use them in everyday life.
In the Fourth Step of Alcoholics Anonymous, one has to take a fearless moral inventory of oneself. The goal is to take responsibility for one’s actions by admitting any mistakes or wrongdoings in certain areas of one’s life. The individual undergoing the recovery process will also need to find out how they have previously avoided responsibility and how they may act differently moving forward.
The moral inventory will involve four parts: resentments, fears, sexual conduct, and character defects. These will have different names depending on the sponsor and what the individual has learned when doing the fourth step. With regards to resentments, the individual is urged to write down all of the people who have hurt or wronged them in some manner, and then examine how these offenses have affected them and how this has negatively influenced their behavior.
The individual will also need to consider how each fear, both internal and external, is affecting their life negatively and why it is difficult to overcome those fears. Sexual conduct has to do with the individual’s behavior from the past to the present, including those actions or attitudes that have caused harm or distress to themselves or others. Lastly, the individual has to consider how negative traits, like selfishness, dishonesty, and pride, have contributed to the addiction and how these might counteract their ability to attain and maintain sobriety.
Knowing how to approach the Fifth Step of AA is the focus of the second article. The goal of this step is to share or discuss these issues with another person, which is typically a sponsor or other trusted person. The act of having another person listen to one’s issues can provide the understanding and clarity that would not be possible without it. While this may be a difficult process, it enables a person to gain insight into themselves and achieve lasting change that can allow them to break free from their addiction.
The Sixth Step requires the willingness of the person to ask God or a higher power to eliminate those character defects that were identified in Step 4. This step requires honesty, humility, and the willingness to let go of the previous ways of behaving and thinking. It is by letting go of these harmful thoughts and behaviors that the person struggling with an addiction is able to create new patterns of thought and behavior that support personal growth and sobriety. It is important to note that regardless of the person’s specific beliefs, step 6 has to do with developing the person’s willingness to change for the better to eliminate the character deficiencies that contributed to the addiction.
