Everyone in recovery has their little tricks or things that work for them, and for me it’s knowing that I can always go back to drinking again if I want to. That might sound strange, but it means that I’m making a choice
–that I have a choice –and that I am in control of myself and my future. For me, that’s reallyimportant.”
