Step 10 Al Anon

Step 10 - Continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

I am so grateful to have many program friends. Most I know practice this step in the evening. I actually practice it in the morning. I am very much a morning person. I'm alert, clear headed and enjoy my mornings very much. 

My practice is to think of the previous day.
What am I grateful for?
What might need some work?
What might need to be taken to my sponsor?
What might I be able to offer to others? 
Do I need to look at a specific previous step?

These questions allow me to continually take my own inventory and if something needs to be corrected to work on a plan of correction.

If you have a step 10 practice, I'd love to hear about it.

In gratitude,


Senior Member

  aww Thanks Audrey.

There were old people in our community- who seemed to have it all together.

I found out later that they all had there joys and sorrows like everyone else.

But they had found a way through- and I did want to be like them!

Getting into Alanon served this purpose. We all had similar experiences.

We could relate and learned to trust and to bond. I began to find some balance.

Gratitude came hard for me. I had a whole heap of stuff I was not grateful for!

But I know that these old people had a place to go to. In their hearts. Some had a faith,

and some seemed to have none. But they all seemed to go beyond that. A place that I needed.

Now, today I am that old person in my community.

Thanks for getting me there, Alanon. aww

Thanks so much, for your service to us, Audrey. smile ...

What a wonderful share David,

My first sponsor and I texted our gratitude daily. Some days I just had to make something up. When she and I ended our sponsor/sponsee relationship, I chose a new gratitude partner. When she left the program, I chose a new gratitude partner. Today, I love to surprise my Ala Family with "so what are you grateful for right this very minute?" Ah the joys of being in my Ala family :)
