We can’t control alcoholism with willpower. We must lean on sober friends, our sponsor, and a Higher Power. Accepting guidance is a sign of strength.
A recovering Alcoholic & Addict said:
“At first, I had trouble admitting powerlessness. I talked to friends in recovery and they felt the same way. I realized letting go of trying to control everything also means getting to let go of the shame and guilt that made me feel terrible. I learned that I can’t control everything in my life. There’s freedom and relief in admitting that I don’t need to be perfect. I’m more relaxed, calm, and comfortable with myself.”
Talk with others about your struggles. You are not alone.
