How to Successfully Get Through Step One

May 19, 2022 | Rehab

If you’ve been doing your research or if you’ve been trying to get through the Twelve Steps that can help you with addiction, then you might be aware of how especially tricky the first step is.

Here at Taylor Recovery, many people have been asking us how they can successfully get through Step One to kick off their journey towards addiction recovery.

While we want each patient or struggling individual to get to where they need to be, it’s crucial to actually understand what it takes to get there. This is why it’s vital to simplify and interpret Step One, and this is the step that will pave the way for the remaining eleven steps.

Step One states, “We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.”

One of the first things that each recovering alcoholic has to keep in mind is that they should be able to explain the meaning behind this first step within this context.

Don’t get us wrong, though, because this is one of the terms that may confuse and upset most people, and they might even turn away from the Twelve Steps for good.

Naturally, we wouldn’t want that to happen because the Twelve Step is seriously beneficial to those who want to overcome their alcohol addiction.

So how can we successfully get through Step One?

Frankly, one of the most important things that each patient has to do is be gentle, patient, and honest with themselves. The latter, honesty, is something that each individual has to deal with because they’re dealing with raw emotion and maybe even some trauma.

This is why being honest is so important when it comes to successfully dealing with Step One.
