Step 8: Preparing for Change
Part of Hazelden Classic Step Pamphlets Series
Now that we’ve begun to heal, we need to heal the wounds we’ve caused to others. This pamphlet helps us to make a list of those we harmed by our addictive behaviors so that we can prepare to make amends to them. The freedom we experience through cleaning up our side of the street is not only a relief from guilt but a new empowerment and the release of the fear of people.
“While our addiction was active, we likely did a great deal of damage to our relationships through our addictive behavior. Now that we are in recovery, we need to get ready to face those we’ve harmed and offer our amends. Step 8: Preparing for Change guides us in preparing a list of the offended people and becoming ready to make amends.”
