Turn Your Control over to Your Higher Power
Having a willingness to turn things over and a desire to stop “controlling” are essential in recovery.
This is difficult. Your addiction has fooled you into thinking you’re still in control and that you know what’s best for you.
For that reason, it’s absolutely necessary to completely turn things over and give up your self-centered way of life. When you turn things over, you are deciding that your Higher Power can guide your life rather than you trying to control your life. This takes practice.
