A car with no battery is powerless. So isn’t it insane to try and start a car with no power? In just the same way, an alcoholic is powerless over alcohol. It is just as insane to try and simply “put the plug in the jug” or control how much we drink. Every day, we awake powerlessly and have to remember to tap into our Power source.
Today, I know that I am powerless over alcohol. I must turn my thoughts and actions over to the one who has all power. I will ask God to direct my thinking and provide relief from self-will so that I can serve my Higher Power and others.
