No, I asked what you really wanted to discuss, what is behind this new thread of yours. If you don't wish to answer and continue in this fashion, then that's OK.

I am not sure what is meant by the last sentence.

If I relapsed after a long period of sobriety, I need to admit that something wasn't working. But instead I continue to tell myself and others that I have accomplished being sober for five months, even though I have relapsed...

The reason I am asking other people what they think is that I am having a hard time articulating why I don't think it's best to act as if a relapse doesn't count because it was one night, or to tell someone younger than me in recovery that I have found a way to make this work for five months except for one slip up.. In what ways does this limit ME and in what way could it influence another's recovery?
