Working Step Four in Narcotics Anonymous
“We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.”
“This guide is intended to be used as an aid to writing a Fourth Step inventory. It is extremely important that we work with an NA sponsor. If you don’t have one yet, this is a good time to find one who can help guide you through these steps. After reading through this guide on your own, we suggest you read it again with your sponsor before beginning the Fourth Step. It is also very helpful to use other NA literature and step meetings to gain more information about the Fourth Step. There are many methods of writing inventories, and no one way is right for everyone. This guide represents the experiences, strengths, and hopes of many addicts who have found recovery in Narcotics Anonymous. Regardless of the method, our Fourth Step will be successful if we are searching and fearless.” — excerpt from the booklet “Working Step Four in Narcotics Anonymous ” Copyright © 1988 by Narcotics Anonymous World Services, Inc.
