    Step Two ~ Part 2: Questions

    “Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves
    could restore us to sanity.”

    1) Alcohol issues and behaviors aside, in what ways has my life been
    insane and unmanageable? In my home? In my relationships? In my work? In my relationship to God?

    2) To what extent has my emotional, social and/or spiritual immaturity
    caused this insanity? What skills have I lacked in order to act on life in
    a healthy way?

    3) What are some healthy things I am able to do today to act on life
    without turning to alcohol? How have my emotional, social, and spiritual
    skills matured since I started working this program?

    “Finding our Belief System”

    1) Before coming to AA, most of us chose to make ourselves, or other people or things around us, our Higher Power. Discuss how you have used (or
    continue to use) the substitution method of accepting the presence of a higher power. How have you looked for these substitutes in your life?

    2) Defiance is an outstanding characteristic of every alcoholic.
    Discuss how the following concepts played (continue to play) a part in your
    spiritual life:
    a) Self-righteousness and intellectual self-sufficiency are defiance in
    action
    b) Belief means reliance, not defiance.

    3) For many of us, attending an AA meeting is the only part of our day or week where we feel the hope of a new life and the presence of higher power.
    Discuss and reflect on why every AA-meeting is assurance that God/HP can
    restore us to sanity.

    “Defining Our Higher Power”

    1) Looking at your past experiences with religion and God, what are the
    “demons of the past” that you have had to overcome, or are still working to
    overcome, in order to define your Higher Power?

    2) What experiences have you had or actions have you taken that have helped you to come to believe that there is a Higher Power working in your life. If you have not yet come to this belief, what actions might you take in
    order to believe?

    3) Discuss how it is that Honesty, Open-mindedness, and Willingness have
    helped you (or can help you) to find a faith that works under all conditions.
