Step 1 is about letting go. You admit you have a problem and begin to seek out help. It isn’t easy, but admitting powerlessness allows you to break the cycle of addiction that you’ve been stuck in. Alcoholics Anonymous believes that admitting you can’t control your alcohol use is a necessary first step on the path to recovery.
How to Complete This Step?
1. Accept that something is wrong in your life and that you no longer have control. You must admit complete defeat before building a new life.
2. Embrace the truth and want to make an honest change.
3. Understand that recovery can’t be done alone, and acknowledge that you need help.
4. Abstain from alcohol and/or drugs. Alcoholics Anonymous believes you need to be abstinent to achieve recovery.
5. Abandon pride and seek humility. Once you admit your problems and mistakes, you will find modesty and humbleness. You can’t admit embrace powerlessness if you’re still holding on to your pride.
