For me, the first step did not entail a lot of work. I knew, and I mean deep in my heart knew, that I couldn't control alcohol or drugs. I knew they were running my entire life and I mean every bit. I knew I didn't have the power over them*.

*Note, your mileage may vary. I no longer am an active member of NA and have learned tools that have helped give me SOME power over drugs and alcohol. But as soon as I start using, no matter what, I become powerless. PERIOD.
