We admitted we couldn't lick alcohol with our own remaining
resources, and so we accepted the further fact that
dependence upon a Higher Power (if only our A.A. group)
could do this impossible job. The moment we were
able to accept these facts fully, our release from the alcohol
compulsion had begun.
For most of us, this pair of acceptances had required a lot of
exertion to achieve. Our whole treasured philosophy of self sufficiency
had to be cast aside. This had NOT been done with
sheer will power; it came instead as the result of developing
the willingness to accept these new facts of living.
We neither ran nor fought. But accept we did. And then we
began to be free.

What does freedom mean to you?

What does self sufficiency mean to you?
When is it good?
When is it bad?
Did you suffer from self sufficiency?
