Step 10 - Recovered


With Step 10, the Big Book tells us sanity has returned. “We will seldom be interested in liquor. If tempted, we recoil from it as from a hot flame. We react sanely and normally, and we will find that this has happened automatically.”

The process of looking at our character defects and our wrongs that we began in the Fourth Step continues with this Step. “We have entered the world of the Spirit. Our next Function is to grow in understanding and effectiveness.”

Now that we have cleaned up the mistakes of the past and made reparations for them, this Step tells us how to maintain the new state of serenity and freedom we have achieved. With Step 10, we monitor our character defects and their consequences through a daily inventory, taking prompt corrective action as needed to keep our slate clean and our character defects in check.
