Re: The ‘misquoted Step 1’ article — Help for Alcoholics alcoholism alcohol drug addiction treatment recovery sobriety by Dallas B Copyright 1999 — The discussion of the ‘hyphen’ vs. the word ‘and’ is interesting but the conclusion escapes me. Setting aside alcohol obsession: Life for me is unmanageable also when I revert to old ideas (eg attempt to control others). Manageability means focusing on my attitudes & actions -the only areas within my control. And that sometimes requires asking for help.
Wrestling with questions like One or two parts gets me nowhere.
