Powerless…

Blog post by: Alumni Relations Specialist

It says it right in the 1st step.  We admitted we were powerless. What exactly does that mean?  The definition of powerless is “without ability, influence, or power.”  I am okay with the fact that I powerless over things like, drugs, alcohol, the weather, traffic and other people.  I know that right now, it is my choice to go out and use again.  That is one thing I have power over.  If I do, I only have myself to blame for that.  However, once that choice is made, I immediately become powerless and my life will become unmanageable once again.  For this addict, having that knowledge helps me to continue to make the right choice every day.  I know that every morning when I wake up I tell myself, you cannot use today, it is not an option.  You have the power to go pick up or stay clean.  Right now in this minute, I am not powerless over the drug.  Just for today, I choose not to pick up.
