"It's always important to be on your toes and not get too complacent."
The Big Book expressly addresses this. To paraphrase, it says we will no longer fear or be uncomfortable around alcohol, as our obsession has been removed - as long as we remain in spiritual fitness. In other words- what HopeandFaith said, in "regular language." The BB further says that when we have disturbing situations arise we will know how to handle them, even though they used to baffle us. (or we would drink)
This has been true IME and it is absolutely freeing.
