It wasn't unusual for me to talk to God, and myself, about
my character defects. But to sit down, face to face, and openly
discuss these intimacies with another person was much more
difficult. I recognized in the experience, however, a similar
relief to the one I had experienced when I first admitted
I was an alcoholic. I began to appreciate the spiritual significance
of the program and that this Step was just an introduction
to what was yet to come in the remaining seven Steps.
