THE LIMITS OF SELF-RELIANCE

We asked ourselves why we had them [fears].  Wasn't it because self-reliance failed us?

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 68

      All of my character defects separate me from God's will.  When I ignore my association with Him I face the world and my alcoholism alone and must depend on self-reliance.  I have never found security and happiness through self-will and the only result is a life of fear and discontent.  God provides the path back to Him and to His gift of serenity and comfort.  First, however, I must be willing to acknowledge my fears and understand their source and power over me.  I frequently ask God to help me understand how I separate myself from Him.
