How do I stay dry?

I’m a woman and a high functioning alcoholic, recently out of detox.  I’ve been a dry alcoholic (sober); for a week.  My reason for drinking was boredom.  I recently had my family hide their alcohol supply where I can’t find it.  I can sit with them with their glasses of wine without feeling tempted to drink, I take alcoholic medication and I started trying to find ways to distract myself from wanting to drink, by cooking, working out at the gym, volunteer work, art therapy and buying good books to read and I’m booked in for counselling with a drug and alcohol counsellor.

    I've been sober for 25+ years. Working a 12 Step program is the most effective way that I know of. Good luck!
