Could you please tell us a little more? In what sense do you think you have failed?

Taking a step means more than reading about it.
What have you been doing to work step one?

Are you part of a 12-step group?

HI.

There is a site called stepchat.com that has daily meetings on-line and live chat that may be able to help you.  These are people in recovery and they're very sincere.  They helped me get sober, and I've been sober for 6 months now.  Good luck hon.

Hey there!

It is most helpful to find a sponsor if you can.  It's the only way I was really able to get into the step work the right way.  I had a sponsor and three really good friends in different fellowships that led me through until I was able to really take hold and gain a better understanding.  As a newbie to the 12 steps, you really have to attend meetings and have contact with others in recovery.  I can't imagine having to start out just reading.

Good luck!!!!

Hello "FAILED'...such a heavy word ,my sponsor has taught me that the only time I could fail is to stop triing to learn how to recover,
  step one is an addmission of complete powerlessness over some thing ,by that I mean for instance drinking "powerlessness" is addmitted in relation to weather or not we have the power to stop drinking when we want  to .
If I start drinking this afternoon and need to be somewhere tonite later ,will the consumption of the alcohol get in the way of me meeting my obligations.
this is the way we/Iwas taught to begin to look at my situation,not having the ability anylonger to stop when I need to is a tell tale sign of the malady.
maybe this was useful I dunno........keep searching...
