During my early years in A.A. I saw Step Ten as a suggestion
that I periodically look at my behavior and reactions. If
there was something wrong, I should admit it; if an apology
was necessary, I should give one. After a few years of sobriety
I felt I should undertake a self-examination more frequently.
Not until several more years of sobriety have elapsed did
I realize the full meaning of Step Ten, and the word
"continued." "Continued" does not mean occasionally,
or frequently. It means throughout each day.
