I have been hearing this all my life: “The first step to admit you have a problem.” It’s so common that it’s become a cliche. Where did this misconception come from? What else could it be refering to but a “step” program? There’s a world of difference between admitting you have a problem and admitting that you’re powerless over that problem. I’ve been curious about this for a while, but it just doesn’t seem worth doing a post about. Certainly using the “Admit you have a problem” version is much more palatable…

Just wondering about it. Anyone know?
