“We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.”
In July of 1989, Frank M. from Chicago, IL presented an AA 12 Steps Series in Lafayette, Louisiana called Spirituality through the Steps. This tape includes his definition of “what is of an alcoholic” using a test tube and contains his powerful message on the 1st Step. This tape should be required listening for anyone entering recovery or for anyone who is working on their 1st Step in AA, NA, or Alanon.
Remember, we need to perk our ears up and listen whenever we hear the key words or when he discusses the spiritual principle of honesty that we practice in the 1st Step.

NOTE: The tape has a whistling sound in the background for the first 5 minutes and 11 seconds. Then the audio is excellent.
