Exploring Feelings about the Powerlessness Statement

I am Smitty and I am powerless over my emotions. 

Could you say this statement for yourself, with a quiet mind, not needing to argue with those words said aloud?

If this statement seems like a fundamental cornerstone to your recovery, what would you think if someone came to a few meetings and then quietly spoke up during their share and said they would never say "I am powerless over my emotions."  

Can you empathize with them  having good reasons to decline, and use an alternate statement that is more honest for them and helps them "live  in the solution, not the problem?"
