    I have not had a drink since December 28, 2001….I just realized in the last year or so that not drinking does not mean a person is sober…hence I have become active in AA and now have a sponsor working the steps with me. I am only on step 2, have never been a religious sort….and am struggling with believing a power greater than myself can restore me to sanity…..appreciate any insights!



    Do you have the willingness to keep your mind open.?
    How has your life been, using your power to restore your mind?

    “Came” to me suggests a journey of discovery……it doesnt suggest to me…..an instant god awareness…

    “Believe”,…it doesnt say faith does it……..because faith is a completely different word….
    Can you see these 12 steps working for others…….Can you believe that what has worked for them could work for you?……

    Its not asking you to kneel at the alter……..just the willingness to keep your mind open to the idea of “something” that can (my experience) and will restore you mind.

    I always find it amusing that we have no problem with being insane…..but that power thing really gets yer..lol.

    Hope it works out for you…..id be interested to hear about it..



    There are a bunch of ways to approach “HOPE” as the principle of the 2nd step, but if you’re having trouble with the whole, “Power Greater Than Myself,” idea I suggest the following: Make a list of the top 10 most powerful things you can think of in the universe as you understand it. Take your time–I’ll check back…
