Welcome here Marc, yes I would agree that what you say about being honest with ourselves is very important, it takes some of us longer to learn this, because we love to rationalize and justify some things, which we know in our heart are not good for us.

The forums are a bit quiet now, it goes up and down, quiet for a while then lots of posts at other times, but there are good AA folks here, I hope you stick around.

Super happy to hear you are honestly working the program. =biggrin
