How has your Recovery gone so far?

I like to post polls sometimes..they usualy get moved off the addiction forum and sent to the Social forum.....but dont think that will happen here
I know i went thru PAWS and alsmot relapsed...got my nrg back with exercise and tyrosine...and coasted for 1 yr and 1/2..then major stress and loss hit me in July/August of 09....i was trying to be good..and really had no easy access to narcotics anymore//as being the good lil addict, i had cut off connections...so...i turned to alcohol..what an easy lil devil alcohol is to use as my escape mechanism..its everywhere!  anyway..3-4 weeks into my escape from my problems, it hit me what i was doing.
For u guys, have u coasted thru recovery? Has it been hard or have u had any obstacles?  if u have ..tell us so we can share and learn from each other,

I can't believe how similar our recoveries have been, right down to the timing that alcohol entered our lives. I thought I was doing enough aftercare.  I was seeing an addiction medicine doc every month or so, a counselor a few times a month and my pals here on MedHelp.  But I have certainly discovered that I need a lot more structure and accountability to keep going with my recovery and am very thankful to have found AA. 32 days sober now, almost 19 months off opiates.
