There is some great discussion about this, I think jkb and fini started some very useful threads about this topic and generated some interesting discussions. JKB's thread.

I see my Big Plan as being essential to recognizing my AV. It lets me distinguish those thoughts that support future drinking from the normal chaos going on in the committee upstairs. Without my BP, some of the less obvious thoughts slip past the goalie. In this way making a BP is as much a tool of AVRT as much as it is a solemn vow to permanent unconditional sobriety.
