Working Step 10 Questions

Continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Some members find it useful to make a chart that includes a list of typical personal weaknesses and strengths that can be checked off before going to bed. A mental review of the day chronologically or taking note of any event that produced uncomfortable feelings also works. The following questions may help develop the habit of continual inventory.

  1. What is the purpose of step 10?
  2. How do I feel about continuing to take a personal inventory?
  3. What means of taking a daily inventory is comfortable for me?
  4. What will help me continue to apply program tools when life gets rough?
  5. How can I be patient with myself if I feel I’m not growing fast enough?
  6. When might I need to take a spot check?
  7. What can I do with my spot check inventory?
  8. In a daily inventory I can ask myself:


  • What were the major events of the day?
  • What feelings did I experience?
  • How did I deal with them?
  • Did I get myself involved in any situation today I had no business being in?

    I am new to the group and unsure what I’m doing. Is there a straightforward guide to joining a meeting and getting started. I have listened to the 5 fantastic podcasts and joined the group but to tell the truth doing this brings up anxiety, taking me out of my comfort zone. Is there any advice for this situation. Kind regards Pauline
