(noun) The transformative act of acknowledging and confessing one’s vulnerability and powerlessness over alcohol. It describes the courageous step individuals take, particularly within the context of seeking support and guidance in recovery, as they openly and honestly address their struggles with addiction. The intersection of vulnerability and admission that characterizes the journey toward recovery; from German “verwundbarkeit” (vulnerability) and Italian “ammissione” (confession, admission).

Verwammi becomes a symbol of courage, emphasizing the strength found in acknowledging one’s own vulnerability and seeking help. It represents a pivotal moment in the recovery process, where individuals, by embracing their truths and sharing their struggles, forge connections with others who understand and support their journey. Verwammi, therefore, is not merely an act of admission but a transformative expression of resilience, fostering an environment of empathy and understanding within the recovery community.
