Stopping smoking wasn’t a matter of will power, but being will-less. Most of us have struggled, wilfully, with untold numbers of addictions; liquor, uppers, downers, sugar, chocolate, cigarettes, men, women.
The more we became determined to control our use or to abstain, the greater the compulsion felt for one drink, one bite, one puff. Giving in completely was the turning point.
This recovery program helps each of us find relief from our primary addiction once we humble ourselves, accept our powerlessness, and ask for help. It can help us equally effectively, every day, with any problem we are wilfully trying to control.
The program offers the way out of any frustrating situation. We can be mindful of our powerlessness and cherish the opportunities offered by our higher power.
We can turn over whatever our problem to God and quietly, trustingly, anticipate the resolution. It’s guaranteed. –Each Day a New Beginning/Karen Casey | More…
