Ever have a memory of drinking triggered? I do, every time I hear a can open I am triggered remembering that beautiful sound of opening a beer…… EVERY SINGLE TIME!
That sound then causes me to romanticize the beer. Drinking a nice cool beer on a hot summer day…… Ahhhhhhhhh… Can you taste it?
I have fortunately been taught to play the tape forward. Over time this has become ingrained in me. Drinking that first, and possibly second beer might work OK. But by beer number 12, things are not looking so pretty anymore….
It is for this reason that I remain diligent about what it is suggested to do in recovery….
A relapse is just opening the wrong kind of can away….
