I wrote earlier today but can not find the post so I will try again. I am finding that boredom seems to be a big trigger for me. It is important to stay busy and so I need to set goals and commit to some hobbies and stay occupied. But first thing is first. I believe it is a good idea to read and re-read pg 417 of the big book (AA) on acceptance. It would be better to memorize itAcceptance

"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today.
When I am disturbed,
It is because I find some person, place, thing, situation —
Some fact of my life — unacceptable to me,
And I can find no serenity until I accept
That person, place, thing, or situation
As being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.
Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake.
Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober;
Unless I accept life completely on life's terms,
I cannot be happy.
I need to concentrate not so much
On what needs to be changed in the world
As on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes."

Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition p. 417
