The fear of not having a beer on vacation in March when my family goes to Florida makes me sweat....
Congrats on day 15
that is so great!
I have thought about planning a vacation in February, but I am not sure I am personally at that point yet. For me, it would be too tempting as I would not have my son with me. This momma needs a break, but I don't need a break that bad where I am uncomfortable with it, and the possibility of a relapse for me is too high. Now, at home, I am in my comfort zone for the moment, as my son is always with me so staying sober here is easy for me.
My suggestion for your vacation, bring us (SR) with you, have a plan and a solid one in case the AV talks to you, maybe even find a meeting around where you will be, if you attend AA.
I wish you the best in your recovery, remember you are worth it!
