When I got into recovery I realized I had to figure out what I wanted. For awhile, what I wanted was to not use. Over time that has grown, new things have popped up, other things have fallen away.

I never was much of a five year plan sort of person. I went to my first meeting pretty much in the same frame of mind as you. What I wanted was to not use. That's a great place to start.

It even took me awhile to get there. I danced around the idea of recovery for a long time before I decided it seemed like a better option than using. I did a lot of "research" first. Then I got to the "I'll try this" stage. Hanging here has helped a lot, I find lots of ideas of things to try to see if they work in my recovery.
