Will, this is remarkable and I have to admit some envy. I was close to my dad, for one, because he encouraged me to get in my own 12-step programs, as he had his. As a young adult I was able to cover a lot of territory with him before he died at 64, but not quite the emotional level you describe.

I'm right there with you. fwiw, I'm not quite your dad's age, but he's just as human as you...and he reminds a lot of my dad.

I celebrate this moment with you Will, well done!

Monitor yourself, be safe and steady in holding onto what you value in your recovery and when you are ready, challenge yourself again. This is good recovery work here.

Will - you did the right thing... then, and now.
