George Harrison Beatles
This is not 100% related to Alcoholism, and we know from all that has been written that George Harrison, the Beatles lead guitar player was not an Alcoholic. George Harrison and the Beatles certainly did their share of drugs in their day. I watched an HBO special on George Harrison tonight and it was inspiring. George Harrison was certainly a unique soul. He had his own sense of living, life and death. He spent time in India and found true peace within himself through looking inward through meditation. In the documentary, the film-makers made a point of being clear that in place of drinking and drugs, George found the same “high” from his practice of meditation.
Meditation is a practice many recovering Alcoholics can use to calm nerves and push away cravings to drink. The craving to drink or urge to drink is more times than not a mental issue. In AA the phrase, “this to shall pass” is used to fit into alot of situations, but mainly for this recovering Alcoholic “this to shall pass” means just relax and let it go, you won’t want to drink in a while. Let the urge, desire, craving pass. Give it time, be it a half hour, a couple hours or even a day. Let the desire to drink pass. Meditation is certainly a useful tool or skill to have in fighting off the desire to drink. As a recovering Alcoholic, I wish I had the skill of meditation to help me day to day in all my affairs. But as a suggestion, to an Alcoholic just starting out with AA or rehab, learning to meditate is certainly a positive suggestion in having one more skill to call upon when you need it to fight off the urge to drink. Just remember, no matter what the situation and issues circling around in your head. “This to shall pass.” And when those feelings go away, you will have made it through an episode without drinking. If you get the opportunity, learn to meditate. It can save you from drinking when times get hard and the urge or craving to drink is strong. Staying sober is no easy task, especially when you are new to sobriety and trying daily not to drink. If you get a chance, see the documentary about George Harrison and his life and life habits. Meditation can be a solid method to keep you from drinking in many situations.
