Recovery planning is very important.
There are recources or people who can help. Going to aa and getting a sponsor is a form of recovery planning, talking to your doctor is another. Some therapist are specialized in recovery planning. Have a plan that involves other people is the best way to stay sober. Ex would be, newly sober, what do you do if you come across a "friend" or dealer. Need a plan.
