Service to others might be the key to staying sober. In recent years, a growing body of research has found that helping others brings measurable physical and psychological benefits to the helper.

Perfectionism and substance use often go together. Perfectionism can also make recovery much harder, since as with other things, perfectionists typically expect too much too soon and are unforgiving of their own mistakes. Perfectionism is a difficult problem to overcome, but with persistent effort, you can loosen its grip on you.info_outline Returning to Face to Face Meetings - Recovered 1093

Complacency can be defined as a feeling of contentment or self-satisfaction, especially when coupled with an unawareness of danger, trouble, or controversy.

It's a subtle difference that has vastly different outcomes. With patience, you will eventually reach your goal. Tolerance, however, will only serve to keep you stuck in the status quo.
