Thank you,

When you think of making the Big Plan, what positive feelings do you sense are there or would be there when you make it?

To me, the Big Plan was big, but in the context of what I knew was the type of life I wanted to live, it actually terminated an extremely narrow and precisely identifiable type of behavior - putting alcohol, drugs in my mouth and lungs. I mean, how more willful in-my-face specific an action could ever be defined? That's why I soon discovered it was easier than I thought. There was a real loss, but Wow, the payoff so outweighed the loss.

Also, check out p. 133 at the bottom starting with "Keep in mind..." in RR:TNC and reread as far as you want.
