    Terrific post! I think there is an initial value in filling the existential vacuum with a new identity guided by a recovery centered lifestyle. But hyperintention (with the best of intentions) and misunderstanding “just for today” to mean I should no longer prepare for the future runs the risk of longer term myopia which in turn feeds the vacuum and alters A.A. into “Another Addiction”. Interestingly, I think Bill W. and Frankl would agree that emptiness and addiction go hand in hand, but which comes first seems to be a point of contention.
