The solution in the rooms is the 12 steps, for an alcoholic that is, if significant work is not done why should anything change:-)

The thought didn't last long, it was after spending a pretty awful evening with the crew in a bar, watching the guys I was with getting hammered. I was also feeling down as I had just broken up with my ex.

Every once in a great while, a good reminder of the fact that I'm still an alcoholic.

I think the important difference to note is that you are thinking about your "sobriety" not thinking about "drinking"
