I've learned that the suggestions given to me when I was attending AA were the best suggestions I've ever received. I especially remember hearing that you take yourself wherever you go. I moved from Connecticut to Florida several years ago after being sober for many years. At first when I went to the pool I brought my diet coke and my bottled water-but couldn't help noticing that everyone around me was drinking cold beers. I resisted for a long time-but one particularly hot day someone offered me a beer and I took it- thinking that "just One" wouldn't hurt. Well sad to say One wasn't enough and soon I was back to drinking an 18 pack every day. It doen't matter where you move to -once an alcoholic always an alcoholic. I now know that I can't handle "just one". Hope this helps someone else.
