    Hi Guys,

    I have a few questions on AA that I’d like your thoughts on if you have a few moments.

    I’m just new into AA and it’s doing wonders for me, I’ve no sponser yet and haven’t started the steps.

    I’ve read through them and I’m a little sticky on Step 5 – Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

    My problem is that I’m very ashamed of some of the stuff I did when I drank and I’m very uncomfortable with telling anyone the whole story.

    I’m sure I can’t be the only person to feel this way – does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on this, either how they did handle it or intend to.

    Also, is there a consensus on how long after you start the AA that you should begin doing the steps ?

    Many thanks,
