How do you manage your addiction to prn or mb or prn/mb? Do you have a game plan for the day or do you just "wing it" and hope for best?

Interested to know.

Plan    
"My days are now filled. Very planned out. I do my dailies and surrender a lot. And, I go to tons of meetings and work the steps. Also, I get a lot of priesthood blessings. These help a lot.

Basically, I have learned that being alone with my addict is just a very bad idea."

"I make sure that mind, body, and spirit are well balanced and in synch. When I am out of balance, I am stressed, when stressed I turn to prn."

good question.    
"I will tell you if I plan on being sober, it never works really for me cuz it's the situation if it's a suprized from hell can change my "game plan" very very quick and I don't give a crap to stay sober. I want to numb out that feeling of sudden impulse. That when I pray, contact my sponsor and hit a 12 step mtg. If their not one at that moment, I tell myself to just be sober until the mtg....And usually always I don't want to act out after the mtg. It's working for me.:)"

"I like what you said "have learned that being alone with my addict is just a very bad idea". wise words. Your right that why contacting others and hitting a meeting just to get away from the addict in us is so right.:) Praying. God is so powerful if we ask Him"

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
