Most of my Step 1 work was done while I was in treatment. We actually had a 'workbook' type exercise where we answered a lot of questions. We also did a 'drug history', telling all about the consequences of our drinking and then shared it with our process group. When I worked the step with my sponsor, I did the BB reading mentioned above, read Step 1 in the 12x12, did a little bit of writing about how my life was unmanageable, and moved on to Step 2.

IMHO--when I admitted I had a problem, went to treatment, and quit drinking and using drugs, I had completed a first step. They say the first step is the only one we need to do perfectly. We do that by not picking up a drink or drug.

Way to go on your almost 30 days!!!
