P.S. Whenever I finish a task [like working the steps], I feel so light.
This is a boost of self-esteem, which is one of the major points of working the steps. You feel good about yourself [self respect]. You brain is now releasing chemicals similar to limerence [romantic love]
Feels great doesn't it. All this takes the place of your former obsession with your PoA and your life-long desire to get love through romance instead of love of God and love of Self.
Congratulations. You have found a healthier way to get high.

Ah yes, doing the work definately changes my state of mind. Even if its hard emotional work, its a freeing, a letting go, and it feels great. I never thought of it as boosting self-esteem, I definately like that.
