Even though I'm going through extreme stress right now, I am really, really happy that I don't have any urge to drink. I'm finding new ways to deal with stress that I never really new existed. Sometimes I just have to take some deep breaths and think about happy thoughts. It is working. I still am going to meetings almost every day, which I think helps a lot. The support I receive from my AA friends helps dramatically. I don't know that I could stay sober without it. I always take the time to reflect on this and wonder. Does anyone reading have any suggestions that help in stress relief?
