Anyone use cognitive therapy techniques such as mindfulness as a daily resource to stay sober? I came across the practice recently and involves being present and focused in the moment while performing daily tasks. For example, one of my old habits was to put a little liquor in my morning coffee every day. This morning, I went downstairs and my mind flipped automatically to reasons why it wouldn't hurt this morning to add a little something to celebrate the New Year. I acknowledged the thought and moved on to make coffee and clean the kitchen. This way I acknowledged the urge and then made an active choice knowing that my urge was just that..a feeling, a habit. I recently downloaded a free app called "Healthy Habits" that provides several types of free resources about happiness, meditation, mindfulness, etc. that were written by a cognitive therapist. I've read a few articles on happiness and mindfulness and they are well written.
