First Step Reading

by on August 3, 2017

We admitted we were powerless over alcohol that our lives had become unmanageable.

Without the first step, there is no chance of recovery.

It has been demonstrated over and over again that person becomes sober and stays sober only when they are doing so for themselves and themselves alone. They may become sober temporarily for sake of some person, fear of some sort, because of their job, but unless they are sincerely genuinely determined to sober up for themselves and themselves, their days of sobriety are numbered.

It is a difficult step to take. It is a step in which no assistance from an outside source is possible. The prospect must make it alone. It is not easy to admit defeat. For years we have said “I can stop drinking anytime I want to”

So we finally came to a fork in the road. We either honestly admitted that we had a problem or we continued sinking deeper and deeper into the bog of alcoholism resulting in loss of mind or death, Until the admission is made, to ourselves, that our alcoholic problem has gone out of control, we have no inspiration to stop drinking. But, once that admission had been made, the way is clear.

It is at this point that alcoholics anonymous can step in and lend a helping hand in the remainder of the program.
