I have to add ..I just read post from Rlee about Holidays..

It takes extra vigilant to stay on course of sobriety during holidays...

I am going on Vacation shortly for a week...and it is somewhere down in Caribbean...I can imagine free flow of booze there...it is hard but I am going to stay vigilant...keep watch...I have to mention this has been pondering and worrying me a little bit that how I will be on vacation and stay sober, sometimes I had thoughts of drinking...but I have to commit to myself and stay sober...any suggestions pls let me know...

thanks

Hey IAT!

I think it's entirely "normal" (whatever that means these days) that those thoughts come to you, those drinking thoughts. After all, vacation is, for many folks, the perfect time to let loose while the booze flows.

That you are NOT stuffing those thoughts is, I think, about the healthiest thing you can do. Putting them out there, out in the wide open spaces, disarms them, makes them, I believe, far less dangerous.

But then you said it yourself, you need to stay vigilant--and know what? I think you will.

You're moving forward with your life, iamtrying, and all along the way, this time around anyway, you're making a whole lot of damn good decisions.

I believe that you will continue to make good ones!

Have a great time on vacation!

best,

sam
