    hi every one can some one tell me please how this work do i stay on 1 for how longbefore i go to step #2 thanks



    Hi blackdragon
    Welcome to 12 Step National Meetings 🙂

    Have you got a sponsor? You usually work with them 🙂



    Hi, blackdragon,

    You “stay on it” until you’ve examined the ways in which you are powerless over alcohol and the ways in which your life is unmanageable, and you are wholeheartedly able to admit it. Do you drink when you intend not to? Do you drink more than you intended? Are you able to control your drinking? Do you obsess about alcohol until you can have a drink?

    How manageable is your life? A lot of us still have jobs, families, homes, but in subtler ways our mental, emotional, and spiritual life is out of control. We may look like we’re coping on the outside but inside we are falling apart. Or maybe we are having one problem after another that is somehow related to alcohol.

    When you are able to admit the step, and to accept its truth, you’re ready for Step 2.

    As Dee said, though, it’s best to work the step with a sponsor who will read some of the Big Book with you and talk to you to be sure you don’t have any doubts about Step 1.
