I don't think I have any words of wisdom, but I did a lot of apologizing this year, lol. Even though I didn't do the steps I feel like I have made ammends with those I harmed, mostly my family.  I just wanted to ask how step 8 works. Do you go to all the people you hurt with your addiction and apologize, sorry just not sure what you have to do?

First I wonder what kind of guide are you using and are you working with a sponsor? The 8th step is about identifing the damage we caused. The 8th has 2 pts. 1 "We made a list of all persons we had harmed 2 Became willing to make amends to them all. In making a list you name the person-place-thing that you harmed and out to the side you list the harm.done. This will take care of the first part of the eighth step.I found it useful to have the defination of harm written out.You should give yourself a timeline to get this work completed. Feel free to pm me  if you have more questions or post here so others can learn from your experience Be Blessed
