A plan

Good morning (in Califonia)
I'm reading lots of posts this morning about life after alcohol and today many seem to reflect my own negative moods of late.
I also routinely see the question asking "do you have a plan?).
My plan these first three weeks (21 days today!) has simply been to not consume alcohol. It has been the most important part of the plan I would wager but now feels like the tip of the iceberg.
Aside from the enormous gift of you folks I am not in any sort of recovery group and I'm unfamiliar with most of the terminology.
Can any of you share your plans with me? I would like to implement a long term strategy for moving forward.
Thanks to all of you for being here!

Hi DonTolan47, Big congratulations on 21 days!

I was just focused on not drinking in the beginning, too. But, we grow a little bit and then we need more.

My Big Plan is still kind of sparse; I visit this site a lot (and post), I am in counselling, I started prior to stopping alcohol, but now I feel like I can actually work on the past crap that I was trying to bury with empty booze bottles. And I read books on recovery, memoirs and such.

I am trying to find some kind of face to face meetings. I haven't had success with that yet but I will persist.

Happy 21 Days Sober To You!!!!!!

For me something simple as daily checking in on SR was the beginnings of my plan.

When the misery of alcohol faded in my mind, as I forgot why I had quit drinking, when my mind started to sell me why drinking would be a good idea again, on my own in isolation was not a great place to be, so I knew having a daily SR check in would keep me focused on the task at hand!!

We need support I learned in the bad times as well as the really good times, my plan built from there!!
