Step 9

Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others

About Step 9, from Sobriety Television

Bernard Robeson from Sobriety Television presents an overview of Step 9, how it requires great maturity and that for Step 9 especially it is important to have a sponsor. He also points out the importance of the qualifying phrase "except when to do so would injure them or others". Even if it makes us feel good to get things "off our chest" we need to be careful that it is not at the expense of someone else. More information is available at Sobriety Television on YouTube.
