Response to TygrBright (Original post)

34. Wow, how did I miss reading this before?

Or maybe I did and it's hitting me just as strongly on the second read. It makes me sad to think one single person who could be helped by a 12 step program might be stopped by the god problem. I will say, as a second time retread (15 years away), I haven't seen a bit of proselytizing or even commenting on the various forms of HP people have. No one bats an eye when I talk about my higher power and that I call her Evelyn. No one, zero, nada, zip.

So, maybe things are getting better?


PS While I'm a retread because I had the amusing idea that I was cured of my illness, which is codependency or co-addiction as it's also called, I don't think I'm going to be a thrice tread. While, of course, it's one day at a time, the reality is, my illness is incurable, progressive and fatal unless I'm in recovery, so 24 hours at a time, I'm making a life choice to remain in my recovery program.
