Today is my "day # 2' of sobriety - this being yest ANOTHER attempt to really "get" the program. I went to a meeting yesterday and another meeting today. I read the BB last night and prayed for honesty, willingness, serenity. I said the 3rd step prayer over and over this morning as I was in the shower, just hoping that today will be a day of no alcohol, clarity, and being at peace with myself. I feel like I am officially on the 3rd step. I have certainly admitted that I am powerless (step 1); and I do believe in a HP to restore me to sanity(step 2). But, this is where I get stuck: Step 3. How do you "turn over your will?" In the AA meeting I just got home from the reading was Chapter 3 in the 12&12 and the discussion was all about Step 3. I just don't know if I am doing it right. If I were (in the past anyway) then I would not have continued to relapse hundreds of times. Anyone have any concrete instructions on "turning over your will to the care of God?"
