Shirt I was just pondering this. I never really ever had the drinking urge in the early days say up to at least 30. Usually because I was immobilized by the fear of whatever the current crisis I caused was. This time however I threw myself into step work with a new sponsor and stayed totally away from any trigger areas and low and behold I'm 11.2 months.
Now with some 12th step work especially and continuing to listen and reads lots of stuff and with the help of sites like this one my troubles have not been about wanting to drink or use just living life on life's terms.
If I get the urge to drink I would do as many meetings in a row as I could and phone as many of my AA friends as I could until it passed. If I needed to make an immediate life change to ensure my sobriety nothing would stand in the way of making that change.
They say in the big book when you are really antsy find someone else to help.
I like being sober and working the program. This plan is better than the plan I had come up with previously
