Dealing with the Holidays

Updated February 08, 2014

Visitors to the About.com Alcoholism Forum were asked to share their personal experiences in maintaining sobriety during the holiday season. Their replies provide helpful tips for those who may be struggling to stay clean and sober through the temptations of the holidays.

Jim G's Holiday Tip

We go to meetings. AA has no holidays. If you go out where there is drinking take your own car. That way you can leave if its to hard to handle.

Stay clear of H.A.L.T. (don't get to hungry, angry, lonely or tired). Don't drink! Call your sponsor. Read the Big Book. Get plenty of phone numbers.
