Excitement used to be a huge trigger for me. I didn't know what to do with it. I've wondered for ages why that particular feeling was a trigger and the conclusion I've come up with is that, as adults, we celebrate EVERYTHING with booze. All the exciting stuff = booze. So I figure it's more a case of conditioning than anything. No sooner than I would start to feel the excited feeling at an event etc, I, along with most others, would have a drink in my hand and quickly mask that feeling, not really experiencing it. At the start of my sobriety, excitement was a scary beast. I assosiated it SO strongly with booze. Then I learnt that it is so much more fun fully experiencing it rather than pouring a depressant on it. I am about to set off to see Disney on Ice with my family. I have wanted to go since I was a kid myself and have been super excited for ages! Child like excitement that resulted in a child like strop because I couldn't find a Disney top (twat). All is good. I now have one, my eldest is dressing youngest up like a princess (with cowboy boots) and we'll be on our way soon. So. Fricking. Excited. Booze would fuckin ruin this. I've already seen all the adverts about the bars on site....no ta. I want to experience this fully.
