I hope this finds you well again, and enjoying today~
It worries me when you "rarely think about alcohol." We can't afford not to think about alcohol almost every second of forever. I don't mean in the forefront~ it just has to be a thought that is primary to our daily lives. If you are doing a morning meditaion, you are thinking about it. If you are ordering a sparkling water when out, you are thinking about it. I feel that every move I make is "thinking about alcohol." It's how I live each day...in a new way (living in a new way means we are thinking about alcohol because of the devastating impact it has on our lives and the lives of those we love) so that I don't return to it's use. Thinking about it, keeps me humble, healthy, and fearless. Every step of the Steps is thinking about alcohol.
I know you will have to think this over : ) I so align myself with you in this way~
Your mom-in-law is darling~ I love the "whisper." She is proud of you~
Love ya~ have a great day!
love above all~
