couple of quotes from the good ole folks on this board

I started looking at my sobriety and recovery as a "relationship". I wasn't on a "plateau" like you mentioned, but I knew if I started looking at recovery and sobriety as a relationship, I knew there was always something I can do to make it better and more fun and more fulfilling. That "relationship" was there all along, but I never saw it that way until I started LOOKING for it.

In AA, we train our feet to go where we want our minds to go. We take actions and the mind will follow the body. We can’t think ourselves into right actions, but right actions will produce right thinking. Thanx, Dallas!
