This is from NA's Basic Text where it talks about Step 1. The word "drugs" has been replaced with "games", but that is the only change I have made to the text. This is from the 6th edition...
"A second admission must be made before our foundation is complete. If we stop here, we will know only half the truth. We are great ones for manipulating the truth. We say on one hand, 'Yes, I am powerless over my addiction,' and on the other hand, 'When I get my life together, I can handle [games].' Such thoughts and actions led us back to active addiction. It never occurred to us to ask, 'If we can't control our addiction, how can we control our lives?' We felt miserable without [games], and our lives were unmanageable.
"Unemployability, dereliction and destruction are easily seen as characteristics of an unmanageable life. Our families generally are disappointed, baffled and confused by our actions and often desert or disown us. Becoming employed, socially acceptable and reunited with our families does not make our lives manageable. Social acceptability does not equal recovery."
