I like that a lot.

And yes, semantics are very important to me, as they are to many of us. We trade in language. Living a life "in recovery" is not what I do. I think of it like an athlete getting injured - eventually he returns to the game or he doesn't. For me I'm returning to the game, maybe for the first time but still, recovered from my addiction to alcohol. I'm recovered from prostrating at the altar of the poison.
