Veronica Valli and I (7) discuss Step 2

So today is Boxing Day in the UK – another bank holiday so in the past this meant spending the day recovering from a hangover or sod it – let’s start early and skip the hangover by getting drunk again!  Boxing Day races was always a big thing when I was growing up.  Mulled wine and watching the jee jee’s with a punt on the side.  For many it is now associated with the Boxing Day sales so a bit like Black Friday in the US.

Veronica and I met once more to chat on Skype and continued our series about the 12 steps.  Today we discuss Step 2 which reads: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.  Veronica does an excellent job of exploring exactly what Step 2 means and how you apply it to your life.

I am so enjoying these discussions, and I hope you are too?   As I say at the end it is encouraging me to re-evaluate my beliefs about things.  Open-mindedness is key 🙂

We’ll be back in the New Year discussing the remainder of the steps.

  1. I am enjoying your discussions with Veronica 🙂 . it’s important for us to realize we cant fight addiction on our own, and that Higher Power, is key. Great discussion! xx

  2. really interesting discussion….thank you both. still think for me the biggest barrier to AA is time inflexibility…. the idea of committing to a regular time, even a day time, was too off putting particularly at the beginning, when I was so immensely fragile. never say never though – as so many people are helped by it – and hell at least it would be free unlike counselling 🙂 xx
