So what makes A.A. work anyway? The first thing is to have an extreme dislike and hostility towards myself and the way I live. Then I have to admit I am helpless, that alcohol and or drugs control me and I can’t do anything about it. The next thing is to honestly want to quit my old life. Then I must surrender my life to a Higher Power; put my drinking and my drug use in my Higher Powers hands and to leave it there. After I have done these things I must attend A.A. meetings regularly for fellowship and sharing.
If I help others in A.A. it will only help me.
Am I doing these things?
