How can you say that mistakes are not good or bad? They are not neutral.

I think there is an obvious difference between planned "mistakes" and past ones. We cannot say "I have a mistake scheduled for 8:00 when my wife goes out", but when we are looking back on last night, or even last hour, it's not helpful to start labeling the mistake/fall as good or bad, just as a mistake. Calling it good will disillusion us, and calling it bad will depress up. Neither of these emotions are helpful for recovery.

And what about recognizing it for what it is to do t'shuva?

I hope Hashem will give me the chance one day when I'm truly sober to really do proper teshuva. Untill then I am working on step one of teshuva which is azivas hacheit (stopping the sin). When I've learnt how to stop I can begin to work on charuta (regretting) and viduy (spelling out what i've done). But to do that now would be tovel im hasheretz b'yodu (immersing in a mikva with the source of the impurity in one's hand. In this case an active lust problem).
