12 Step Alcoholism Recovery Program: Step 4

We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

In recognition of Alcohol Awareness Month, Retreat at Lancaster County will be providing tips on alcoholism recovery and prevention throughout the month of April.

Step four in the program is related to the process of deep self-discovery. In order to stay sober in the long term it is important to understand your attitudes, thoughts, beliefs, fears, actions, behaviors, and patterns – and particularly how they have contributed to your struggle with alcohol. You will learn that recovery means more than just physical sobriety – you must also find emotional sobriety to truly be happy with your new life.

By discovering the nature of your character and the causes of your actions you can work to remove destructive habits, attitudes and fears to work on building a life of positive action. This fact-finding mission is crucial to a better understanding of yourself. Only by realizing the root causes of your addiction can you address the behaviors head on to make room for self-improvement. Only after a deep, truthful process of self-improvement can you begin to find a place that allows you to act for the good of others and build positive relationships.

By taking an inventory of your wrongdoings and discovering the root causes of your actions, you can prepare yourself to recognize warning signs down the road. Discover what makes you angry, sad, fearful, uncomfortable and stressed so that you can learn to handle these feelings in a healthy way and through healthy action. A life of sobriety is a life of self-awareness and understanding your emotional triggers will help you on your path to a better life.
