"We admitted we were powerless over alcohol (our dependencies) that our lives have become unmanageable."


Powerless over our separation from our spiritual base, we use dependencies to fill the void caused by that separation

Unhealthy Dependencies
Alcohol or Drugs
Work or Achievement
Exercise
Overspending
Sexual Addiction
Approval
People, Places, Things
Food
Tobacco
Control Addictions
Power
Religiosity
Shopping

We use dependencies to avoid our pain.
We live in a fantasy world.
We cannot cope with life.
Our denial kept us from seeing how powerless and unmanageable our lives had become.

Surrender is the answer

We had to stop fighting a Higher Power, ourselves and others.

The solution:

Honesty
Open-mindedness
Willingness
