BELIEVING

When we surrendered to our Higher Power, the journey began.

~ Anonymous 

Many of us had trouble believing that a God existed when we began our recovery program, because for years we thought we were the master of our own affairs. We paid attention to no desires or wishes but our own.

When we realized how much help we needed, we first looked to other members and our group for support. By rejecting at first the idea of a Power Higher than our-selves, many of us did accept the idea of a Power other than ourselves. As we have made spiritual progress, most of us now have a clear and ongoing belief in a Higher Power that we call God.

It is important to our recovery to rely on God, as our own belief in a Higher Power is what can and does save us from our addiction. Only two of the Steps talk about addiction. The other ten talk about spiritual growth.

I have a firm foundation for spiritual health and spiritual progress when I continue to believe in my Higher Power.
