Surrender is that moment when we realize and acknowledge to our innermost selves that we cannot stop drinking, that the option to “not drink” has been removed, that will power and desire to stop drinking have no effect to change our behavior. We may use different internal and external words like “I need help” or “I cannot do this anymore” or “I’m through living in this hell.” Before surrender, our life is one of attempts to manage and control our drinking and everything else in our life.
