4th Step Sheets

It's best to work with a sponsor who has done the 4th step as you fill out the columns. Before you begin, it's suggested that you read Chapter 5 in the Big Book, and Step Four in the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. The fourth step review sheets are based on the columns on page 65 of the Big Book.

Bill's Story

Listen to Bill Wilson speaking in 1950 at the First AA Convention in Cleveland.
