Power



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I knew I was powerless over alcohol even before I entered the rooms of A.A., but I had never heard it called that.  All I knew was that once I got started on any given day, I probably wasn't going to stop drinking until I absolutely had to (but no guarantees even then) or unless I passed out.

that I trust myself to act properly in all situations

that I'm so less judgemental of others than I was in "my past life"



Power is of two kinds. 
One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent
then the one derived from fear of punishment.
