    –just another point of view–

    On the flip side, I’ve yet to meet one person in recovery who can tell me they’re gotten step 1 100%. Everyone I know, at least the ppl I hang out with, are continually looking for and having NEW 1st step experiences and revelations – right down to my gr.grand sponsor with over 50 yrs in AA.

    To tell me I have to get step 1 100% implies (to me) that I have to uncover every bit of knowledge possible about that step and not ever have any doubt about any part of it ever. Thankfully Bill saw this potential pitfall and in the book, right after the steps, he eases our concerns where he wrote: No one among us has been able to maintain anything like perfect adherence to these principles.

    I hope I never stop learning about the steps…..in other words, I hope I never hit that 100% mark.
    😉
