    I believe that its up to me to get myself clean, god is not going to do that for me. So a greater power has to restore me to sanity. Im not sure if i believe this. Is it not through will power, perserverance, time and being clean that i will be restored to sanity.

    How can i move to step 3 if i dont believe step 2?

    Please re-read step 2. No where it that does it say “believed”. It says “came to believe”. This is an on-going process, not a singular event.

    What does your sponsor say about this? Have you discussed this with him/her? Do you have a sponsor?

    Hi dgillz,

    Thanks for your reply.

    No i dont have a sponsor. I am from a small town and there is No NA in my area. There is an AA which i attended but i knew alot of ppl there and didnt really feel like i could share honestly, plus alcohol is not my problem i am a drug addict.

    My mother is an alcoholic and i have several family members in AA so i am reading the reflections book and read literature from AA etc..

    I was never one for patience, i supposed i want to be fixed, or to fix myself immediately and things on the long term seem hard to even think about. Ill keep your words in my head (they make sense) came to believe = ongoing processs. Thank you 🙂
