Triggers...


Music is a huge trigger for me, and I avoid it at all costs. For example:

Hey Jeff! Yes, music can be a real big trigger for me at times. It can change my mood in an instant and get me craving alcohol. I'll just shut it off or find something else until I feel better.

Besides the music, what happened?

Please take care of yourself. Drink plenty of water, get some rest and come back to start again.

You can do this.

I've read some of your contributions to the forum Thomas and they are always intelligent and insightful. Don't let alcohol take the person that you really are, or can be in the future.

Your posting of the same link twice may have been a genuine error, but it distinctly reminded me of typical drunken behaviour i.e. Repeating oneself over and over, forgetting what one has said, only to repeat it again.

I hope you are back sober again tomorrow

''Living life sober trumps living life drunk every time.''

You posted this just a few hours ago Thomas. What happened during those few hours?
