Powerless & Unmanageable


New to recovery? From alcohol? From other drugs or addictions?
The key to working a Twelve Step program is ...... working the Twelve Steps.

Step One reads something like this ...
"We admitted we were powerless over alcohol -- that our lives had become unmanageable."

Besides reading AA literature, try answering these questions, just for yourself.

The 12 steps huh? I know I have to work them, but I don't know why I don't?

I'm addicted to alcohol and I take the 12 Steps from my car to the bar and it seems to be working, thank you very much!

Carry on!

One is only as powerless as they believe they are. Once abstinent for a short time, the decision to return to drinking/using is well within the power of any individual IMHO. But you know that already!
