Why do we use worksheets?
We are in recovery, and when it comes to recovery, action is the
magic word. Worksheets help us do this by helping us
focus on what action we need to do, and provides a
tried-and-true method of doing that.
Steps 1 and 2 do not ask us to do anything except think. From step three, and forward it is all action! If we don't try to put the past behind us we are
destined to repeat it. We suggest that you use these worksheets here. If you have
a different type of worksheet you are welcome to use that instead (at least view these here).
The key here is action. Do something. Do something focused, and
constructive. Work with your sponsor to do these important "Action
Items". Steps 4 and 8 are directly related when it comes to the list required in the 8th step.
The 10th step is an important maintenance step because it focuses on
continuous improvement. . Before viewing the below listed
worksheets, click the link below "The 12 Steps...", and review steps
4, 8, or 10 (whichever you're working)
The 12 Steps...
It's suggested that before you start on the 4th, or 8th step
worksheets that you consult your sponsor. If you don't have a sponsor
get one! They can guide you in you recovery.
4th Step Worksheet
Nearly every new person in recovery hears about
the dreaded 4th Step, and becomes frightened at the
thought of having to take a written inventory,...
and be honest. Some of us wouldn't know how to be
honest because we never hve been truely honest. This
step needs a sponsor to help you. Someone that you
can bounce thoughts off of to keep you grounded to
the earth. We are not concerned with other peoples
inventory, only our own. We are cleaning our
OWN house not
anyone elses. Click below to view the "4th Step By
The Book" worksheet.

8th Step Worksheet
The Big Book tells us that relationships are
nearly always the cause of our problems. These
relationships can be as primary as our relationship
with God, or as mundane as our relationship with our
co-workers. It's none of our business what others
think of us, but instead what we do with that
information. We are
always the cause of our relationship problems.
The 8th Step is the act of making a list of people
we have had harmful relationships with, and
culturing a willingness to make amends to them.

10th Step Worksheet
We have a daily reprieve based upon our Spiritual
fitness. With that being the case, we must continue
to take personal inventory, admit our wrongs, and
conduct a daily introspective check. This list will
help you do just that. It helps jog your mind to
think and reflect upon ourselves so that, if
required, we can perform an amends, a prayer, or an
action to keep us on the beam, and in the right
Spiritual condition. Click below to view "Joe's 10th
