1. Have you completed your inventory? If not, what is keeping you from doing so?
2. Have you asked someone to hear your inventory, and got a positive response, so you can go ahead expeditiously?
3. Answer (A.) or (B.)
A. If this is your first inventory, have you had some illumination into the situation your addiction has caused? Are you surprised that you found yourself responsible for so many things you had wanted to blame on someone else? Are you satisfied that you have been honest? Do you realize that in this program, you will be doing this again and again, and therefore can check on your progress, as well as adding things to the list that you may not see right now? Share anything you feel you can on the loop, if you want to. It will help us all to learn.
B. If this is not your first inventory, do you see progress since your last one? Did you find some things that you had not seen before? Was it easier this time that the first time? Share anything you feel you can on the loop. If you want to, it will help us all to learn.
1. I have completed my inventory. It isn't nearly as long as the first one!
3. B. There has been enormous progress for me. I note that my level of anger is much lower than it was once, and more focused on things that are boundary issues, and not just general rage. I find that I am capable of much more honesty about my program, my food, and especially my feelings. There are still some problems, but I'm working on it! Doing a tenth step daily has helped a lot. I have worked the steps at least a dozen or more times, now, too.
