You wonít slip if you decide not to. Take that option right off the table and flex those awesome sober muscles. Have plenty of tasks lined up to keep busy, and stay close to SR. Do whatever necessary to maintain your hard-earned sobriety. If drinking because youíre alone is enticing you because you wonít get caught, let me just say, letting ourselves down is worse than being caught. No one feels that horrible disappointment like we do, because itís all on us. No person or circumstance can make us drink, we choose it all on our own. So slipping is just not an option, because you are stronger and better than that.

Enjoy your productive alone time. I know youíll do great.
