Sobriety and God, and Step 3

Because, those damn 12 steps really do seem to emphasize God, too!  And Step 3 specifically says that we have to turn our care to God, and then adds (I'm sure this was added): as we understood him.  Well, what if he's only been an opaque and diaphanous straw man that stands for the sake of my own moral compass pointing generally due north?  What if I have justified actions that don't deserve justification in my belief in God?

The point here is that we/I/you must make a primary decision to stop drinking, and then deal with the repercussions, even when we're not prepared to deal with them [right now] on our own.  It isn't easy.
