I have been wondering what to do with thoughts of drinking. Do I reject and bury them, or do I try to learn something from them. I have been burying them but I'm concerned they might be like buried emotions, they come back in a much bigger form if not addressed.

I once believed this, but not any more. The things that compel me to want to drink are emotions, not thoughts. And irrational emotions at that.

Drinking alcohol caused me to do foolish things. I would routinely put myself and others in danger when drunk. Yet, did I fear drinking alcohol? I did not. I feared sobriety. Not rational.

There are other irrational emotions. Such as, perhaps, fearing thinking.

Mindfulness is an excellent technique. Definitely look into it!
