I knew I could count on you, TU.

And you've just pointed out all of the contradictions that I was thinking about. One of the things that I've been pondering is the idea in AA that if we stop going to meetings and stop doing the steps, we will probably drink again ... that the possibility of "going back out" is always hanging over our heads. That scares the life out of me because it just sounds so hopeless. So much of AA makes perfect sense to me and has helped me a lot, but I guess I'm missing something somewhere. I guess I need to figure out what that is.

I don't know. Lots of questions going through my head this time around.

Supposing you have tried and failed again and again. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose; this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down. ~Mary Pickford
