I am just feeling like I am not making progress anymore. Have any of you people with years gone through stages like this?
If you had asked me "how's it going" at almost any point during my first 2 or 3 years, my honest answer would have been "ok, but I'm not as far along as I should be."
I came to see that that line of thought had more to be about me not being happy with the way my "turned over" life was going and a false belief that I'd be able to manage better. It was the same darn false ego that had been leading me astray during my drinking years.
If you feel like you need to get into the steps....and do more work in AA....then maybe you do. I dunno. Maybe you're already doing your best under the conditions you're in. (that was a tough one for me to swallow too....I always felt like I could be doing 20, 30, or 50% MORE.....no matter what I was doing).
