We can’t do this alone. When we first come into the rooms we quickly see that this program is all about asking for help. When we were using we thought we could do anything, especially by ourselves. We thought we were invincible and could get through anything, with a drink or a drug.
Now that we don’t have those chemicals, we sometimes don’t know how to ask for help especially since it was something we may have NEVER done in our lives. Yet, when we walk into the rooms of A.A./N.A. we see that the only way we can begin to change our lives for the better is by asking for help. In this sense, we cannot support ourselves. That is why we need a support group. That is why we need a sponsor. They provide support for us. All we have to do is ask. It may be difficult but once we do it we can receive the many miracles of this program.
