My name is Simmo
#11
I've finally embarked on doing my step 4, It's something that is very powerful, but can also be very painful as I find the hardest person to analyse is myself. Having gone through and written down some of my resentments, I can see that I actually play quite a large part in orchestrating the resentments. I'm looking forward to completing this step and moving on to step 5 with my sponsor. Everyone that I have spoken to that has completed all of the steps, and continue to live their lives incorporating the steps has a heightened awareness of themselves and their actions in day to day activities. The first time I looked into step 4, I looked at both strengths and weaknesses in character, I quickly judged myself as not a very nice person, and that's where I stopped. This was about 5 months ago, I'm now ready to continue, as I am no longer in a position where I criticise myself. I am of the understanding that most of my actions whilst in the throws of addiction where that of an ill person, and not actually me as I am today. I'm now going through step 4 with a more open mind, and less judgemental view of myself. It's hard work, but I can now see the benefits of putting in the hard work, seeing that times of hardship are actually an opportunity to grow rather than another weapon in the arsenal to beat myself up with.

My name is Simmo, my last bet was 15/03/16 and I'm a compulsive gambler in recovery.
One day at a time.  My last bet was 15/03/2016 and I hope and pray each day that it stays that way.
