Tuesday night, the Recovery Topic is “Step 1”
We admitted we couldn’t lick alcohol with our own remaining resources, and so we accepted the further fact that dependence upon a Higher Power (if only our A.A. group) could do this hitherto impossible job. The moment we were able to accept these facts fully, our release from the alcohol compulsion had begun.
For most of us, this pair of acceptances had required a lot of exertion to achieve. Our whole treasured philosophy of self sufficiency had to be cast aside. This had not been done with sheer will power; it came instead as the result of developing the willingness to accept these new facts of living. We neither ran nor fought. But accept we did. And then we began to be free.
Let’s talk about this solution. Tap Speakpipe (preferred because the sound quality is excellent. Use this method especially if you are outside the Unites States) or call 1-734-288-7510 and answer the following question(s):
What was your experience with admitting powerlessness over alcohol when you first came in?
How are you powerless over alcohol today?
