“Clean Time” vs “Recovery”

Um, yeah, semantics & representative terminology:

“Clean time” = time past since last ingesting of narcotics & such.
“Recovery” = a journey of balance & growth & whatever.

Therefore, “clean time” is measured in elements of consecutive time, but “recovery” is metaphorically measurable in elements representative of emotional or spiritual “growth” or “change.”

Such that, mathematically, measured time has no conversion into “recovery,” singularly.
However, an argument may exist in that “recovery time” may represent a communicative relationship between “clean time” and “recovery.”

One might visualize this mathematically in an exponential or logarithmic graph of f(×): xy|x=time (domain: x is all Reals, 0<x<positive infinity), y= change or growth (range: indefinite).

Anyway. My math may be in error, but so is getting too serious.

This has been a fun exercise
