The Big Book
The 12 and 12
24 Hours a Day
Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
The second step is about hope, a Higher Power, and dealing with reality.
This step logically follows step 1 in which we surrendered and gave up.
With surrender comes all kinds of unmedicated feelings.
We have to face
Feelings we haven't dealt with in years or maybe ever.
We likely will have to confront uncomfortable emotions like
our fear, anger, hopelessness.
For us with chemical dependency,
we have to face these things without alcohol and drugs.
For us with codependency,
we have to face these emotions without blame, shame, and self harm

how can we solve these problems?
How can we cope?
That is why we need step 2, we need a power greater than ourselves.
