Today: Step 10 and listening
Perhaps more than anything else, Step 10 is about listening. If we listen to other people, we are automatically doing Step 10 ... provided, that is, that we are listening and not doing anything else.....

This Way of Living

Working Steps 10, 11, and 12 alone and in small private groups.

A random selection: We do Step 10 by ourselves as a constant practice, just as the AA Big Book suggests on page 84. But part of Step 10 is the discussion of our selfishness, dishonesty, resentment, and fear with someone else. Obviously, if we need to do this part of the Step, we have to interact with another person.

From the Archives

Ten years ago, the comic strip Ten, Eleven, Twelve made its first appearance on this site. A total of 114 strips told of the day-to-day doings of the rather peculiar members of the "Beyond Human Aid" 12-Step Club - MustNo Y, Tich, Baldy, Nancy, Hippie Harry and the rest. We're celebrating the Club's tenth anniversary with a one-time repeat of those strips, beginning July 1, 2020.
