The Step says simply that God will remove my shortcomings. The only footwork I must do is "humbly ask," which for me means asking with the knowledge that of myself I am nothing, the Father within "doeth the works."
For some it's gluttony, food is their addiction
Make up and selfies, too vein, to hide to their reflection
Covers up the shame and guilt from somewhere within
Hating self inside dating sites and adultery, men and woman
Bottle and pills drowns sorrows for some.
Taking another life off this earth, selfish and aggressive
Others must have control and monitor,
Violent and possessive.
Breaking the law, violent crimes keep them from running.
Once you admit your mistakes, you can God to forgive your short-comings.
