Step One is about acceptance of powerlessness and unmanageability. This acceptance is the opening of a door to freedom. When we realize in our innermost self that we have lost the power of choice forever, we walk through the door to new freedom. Behind the door is a way to carry the vision of our Higher Power’s will into all our activities.
Today, I am powerless over the disease of alcoholism. I will remember that I must carry the vision of my Higher Power’s will into all my activities. Aligning my will with God’s desire for me gives me the freedom from the bondage of self and the disease of alcoholism.
