In order to know if you have worked step eight properly, simply answer the following question:
Did I make a list of the people I have harmed and have I become willing to make amends to them all?
If the answer is no, you have not yet completed step eight.
If the answer is yes, you are free to move on to step nine!
Now read Chapter 6, Into Action from page 82, line 17 through page 84, line 15 in the Big Book and Step 9 in the 12 & 12
