  • posted Just now the topic of coping mechanisms was brought up. What coping mechanisms do you use to avoid using?
    • Craig Scott In my early days of recovery I needed to get out in public. Movies were good but meetings were better. I compiled a list of meetings and times so that I could get to a meeting at any time of the day whenever I needed to. The saying that an addict alone is in bad company definitely applied to me.
    • SoberAna My Recovery Coach worked with me until we found the right set of coping mechanisms that work for me. I draw, paint, watch a funny movie or listen to music.
    • fuzzy1973 if i can, i do something i enjoy; watching a fav tv show, listen to music, something that interests me to get my mind away from the thought of a drink. if you're in a 12 step program, step 10 is a good way to look at the situation; see what your part is and isn't, accepting it and just moving on. these things do take practice and effort but they do pay off.
