We admitted we were powerless over alcohol---that our lives had become unmanageable.

Twelve Steps And Twelve Traditions, p. 21

It is no coincidence that the very first Step mentions powerlessness: An
admission of personal powerlessness over alcohol is a cornerstone of 
the foundation of
recovery. I've learned that I do not have the power and control I once 
thought I had. I am powerless over what people think about me. I am 
powerless over
having just missed the bus. I am powerless over how other people work 
(or don't work) the Steps. But I've also learned I am not powerless over
things. I am not powerless over my attitudes. I am not powerless over 
negativity. I am not powerless over assuming responsibility for my own 
recovery. I have
the power to exert a positive influence on myself, my loved ones, and 
the world in which I live.
