about relapsing














todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have not relapsed since I first got sober (yet)

I can't help but wonder about some of my recovery friends who still go to bars and then relapse. What part of "stay away from the bars" don't you understand? That's what I want to ask them, but the few times I have done so, people seem to be offended. hmmmmmmm...

Looking at my own behavior and my motives behind that behavior is possibly the most important part of my recovery. I have to do it continuously. I think this is called Step 10.

Quote really grabbed me. If I do not judge, everything will be just as it is supposed to be.

I agree about the relapses.

My wife will not go to bars or to large parties. She simply has no desire to be around people who are drinking and loud. I don't like bars either. And for the same reasons.

Relapsers never come back boasting about how great their relapse was... Eh?
