Trying not to stand still

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I know, without any doubt, that I am not recovered from alcoholism.  I hope I never think that I am fully recovered.  I have no desire to drink alcohol and I have not had any desire since the last day I drank in 2003.  But I am still an alcoholic.  My thinking is still alcoholic.  I am NOT wired like a non-alcoholic.  As a result of these things, I will keep going to AA meetings, keep working with others and basically keep doing all the other things I do in recovery.  Why change?  It works.

Be not afraid of growing slowly,
be afraid only of standing still.
- Chinese Proverb

I am glad there are a bunch of us out here in the world. And I am also glad I never decided I am done recovering.

I am not done with my recovery. Still so much to learn and improve upon.
