It can be really helpful to read up on relapse prevention between now and New Year, whether to extend a current sober run or to make a new commitment to getting sober, with a detailed plan for going about it. We don't need to reinvent the wheel; the mainstream recovery ideas work, if we really commit to them and put them into practice ;)?

Thanks Trojan ;)? Found Spiritual River post particularly of interest. Have saved it to read and reread later. I’ll find it useful throughout my challenge to be AF :)

A First Aid Kit for When Life Falls Apart

https://tinybuddha.com/blog/a-first-aid ... lls-apart/

“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t)”.
