Agreed. It isn't written in stone that we have to "formally" write step 4 repeatedly. Some of us do it, some of us don't. I've just completed my 4th step for the second time and there were things I discovered I still needed to work on as a result. Some refer to the latter steps as "maintanence steps" and see no need to do another inventory. Yet, I've found that, after considerable time has passed, it can be very helpful to inventory my life since my last 4th step.
I found it good to remember that we addicts are masters of self-deception.

I am writing another step 4 because I did one early in recovery so many things have changed since then.. that was back in 93 (I think). My children are grown, I am alone... lovers, changes, regrets, resentments... Oh, when I started writing, I released a flood gate and my head started hurting... this is my second day. I am feeling better. Glad to know I am not alone... but, for me, recovery is on going and I do what I do to get better consistently.:praying

I am a 2.2 yrs clean now.. I find the further away from active addiction I get, the clearer my thinking became. LIke Grateful.. I find it so purging. Seems my recovery process is never ending. For me.. if I question something.. I might be needing to look deeper.
