In Step 2, you came to believe in a Power greater than yourself. If you really believe there is a Power greater than you that can help restore you to a normal way of thinking and living, it makes sense for you to use that Higher Power as much and as often as you possibly can!
You realize now that you are not alone. You have the Gamblers Anonymous principles, program, and your Higher Power to join you every day as you face your addiction and take personal responsibility for your actions.

You’ll learn that coping with each day’s happiness and unhappiness is your new way of life. By asking your Higher Power to help you get through each day without placing a bet, you will get the help you are seeking. This is the essence of Step 3.
