SPONSOR/SPONSEE FIFTH STEP WORKSHEET

SPONSOR/SPONSEE FIFTH STEP WORKSHEET

“We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.”

The purpose of this worksheet is to prepare you to do your Fifth Step. Once your Fourth Step is done, don’t look at it. Put it away until you sit down with your Sponsor. Many of us addicts put off doing the Fifth Step after we finished our Fourth Step because of fear. This feeling of fear is with us because we don’t really understand the Fifth Step. The reason we are doing a Fifth Step is to have someone help us know ourselves and give us direction based on their experience in working a program of recovery. As an addict it is quite normal to want to isolate and say we can do it alone and each time we do that we get ourselves in trouble. Remember the Second Step tells us we must do things differently if we want a different outcome. We must reach out for trust to be delivered from the insanity of isolation.

The purpose of sharing your Fourth Step with another person and your Higher Power is not to judge you but to help you know yourself and guide you in areas that you need help. Two of the most important qualities you will get from doing a Fifth Step is open mindedness and willingness. A spiritual awakening you will receive is that you are not unique and different. You find that by sharing your inventory with another addict that they have experienced everything you have, either physically or they have thought about doing it. Many of the people, places, events and circumstances may be different, but the feelings are the same. After doing this Step you will have a must better understanding of the WE of the program. Now is the time to go forward, pray, to the Higher Power of your understanding and set a time to sit with your. NA sponsor to do your Fifth Step.

Write out the following questions and answers on a separate paper and return to your sponsor:

1. Why is it necessary to do the Fifth Step?
2. Write in the gift I will receive in my recovery from doing a Fifth Step?
3. What type of Spiritual Awakening will I receive from the Fifth Step?
