Daily Reflections


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

It is no coincidence that the very first Step mentions powerlessness: An
admission of personal powerlessness over alcohol is a cornerstone of
the foundation of recovery.  I’ve learned that I do not have the power
and control I once thought I had.  I am powerless over what people
think about me.  I am powerless over having just missed the bus.  I am
powerless over how other people work (or don’t work) the Steps.  But
I’ve also learned I am not powerless over some things.  I am not
powerless over my attitudes.  I am not powerless over negativity.  I am
not powerless over assuming responsibility for my own recovery.  I
have the power to exert a positive influence on myself, my loved ones,
and the world in which I live.
