The egocentric, self-centered, selfish
Me, Me, Me, I, I, I, could not do anything
without thinking that I was in complete control.
What a rude awakening I had when I was told
that I had absolutely no control over my drinking,
that alcohol controlled my life.
Only by working the suggested Twelve Steps of AA
and by the grace of God,
which I choose to call my Higher Power,
have I been able to surrender
my will and my life over to His care.
And, as a blessing from above, the obsession
and compulsion to drink alcohol has been removed.
Recovery is a complete surrender to a power greater than oneself.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
