Step 1: “We admitted that we were powerless over our addiction(s)/compulsive behaviors-that our lives had become unmanageable.”
Welcome back folks. Last time we talked about the power that our mind has over us and it’s ability to convince us that the Lie is the Truth, even when we know otherwise.
Our mind is a terrible thing to waste yet it’s also a great enemy of our Recovery.
Additionally, our minds can make us believe that we are okay. We don’t have a problem. We can handle it. We won’t do that again. It’s everyone else’s fault. Etc, etc.
Remember coming to and you didn’t know where you were? Or coming to and you couldn’t remember how you got home? Have you ever been arrested due to your drinking/drugging? Have you ever Hurt someone that you loved because of your drinking or using? Have you ever lied about your using or drinking? Ever driven or went to work buzzed or high? Have you ever stolen to support your addiction? Have you ever sold your dignity to support your habit?
These are things that most of us would not normally do…..yet we do them. Sadly, we honestly can’t help it. Because we are powerless over our addiction/compulsive behavior-our life Has become unmanageable.
That’s where we’ll pick it up next time.
Until then........be sure to tell a friend about us.
Thanks for visiting us - come back soon.
Remember: "It is what it is and "it ain't nothing but a thing!"
