Addiction Lapses: Recognize, Plan & Prevent
Many in our Mayo Connect community have written about how alcoholism has affected their lives. Perhaps it was an alcoholic parent or spouse. Perhaps even you have dealt with alcohol abuse personally. As we all know the holidays are approaching and until the end of this year, alcohol will unfortunately be a “main ingredient” in many holiday celebrations.
I recently read a blog on the Smart Recovery website that offers some suggestions. Here is the link for you to look at and reflect upon.
– A Portable Lapse Prevention Plan http://blog.smartrecovery.org/2017/08/29/a-portable-lapse-prevention-plan/
We would all benefit from hearing how you will approach “Lapse Prevention” in the next couple of months. I invite you to read the blog and then post some ideas of your own as to how you can make this holiday season one of peace and sobriety.
How do you prepare for celebration, holidays and alcohol? Do you have a plan?
