Step 2
We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
In the natural progression of addiction, life degenerates.  In one way or another, many of us wake up one day to realize that we are living like an animal.  How true this is depends on the nature of our addiction.  Some of us may be living like an animal in terms of our physical surroundings.  Others of us may be a slave to our animal passions-powerful emotions that dehumanize us and others.  The fact that we are able to recognize our life as degenerate or insane proves that there is hope for a better way of life.  We are reminded of times when life was good, and we longed to have the goodness restored.  When we turn to God, who is powerful enough to help us build something better, we will discover that His power can restore us to sanity.
