Welcome. Congrats on 5 months sober. Glad you aren’t bashing AA, or any other structured program. Some folks need that structure, and some need the fellowship that these programs offer.
I am in introvert. I recharge by myself, and find strength in my faith-based self. But everyone isn’t me. Some draw strength from others. We call those “extroverts”.
Now I’ve committed to myself that if I ever relapse, I will try AA. As long as what I am doing is working, there’s little reason to change. No “compelling reason to act”. However, should what I am currently doing prove insufficient to maintaining sobriety, then my next step is AA. I know it works, because it’s working for so many people here.
Keep pushing. Fail forward. I agree, 100%
