I am new to the method.

So far its been helping.
Before I use, I take naltrexone. It makes me not enjoy it as much.

However, when I find I have cravings to use, I take naltrexone and find it reduces cravings.
So I use will power to chose NOT to submit to cravings, and the cravings pass and I remain sober.

My goal in life is to be completely sober forever.
I realize I may slip up, and I dont shame myself for slips, but the direction is just total sobriety.

My question:

Should I take naltrexone ONLY when I think I am going to use and may lose self control (and once the drug kicks in, not use)?

Or take it ONLY when I actually think I am going to use?
Meaning if I take it, I have to use my drug of choice so it conditions me to not enjoy that drug of choice

I have been taking it to deal with cravings, and to deal with the usage experience itsself. I take it, and if I use the drug of choice it becomes boring, and I dont crave it later.

I also take it when I have cravings, and then the cravings go away and I stay sober. (is this ok?)

Hi, WTLS! Welcome to TheSinclairMethod.com and thanks for joining us!

When you crave and take the Nal, have at least one drink an hour later, even if you don't want it. One is all you need to move a step forward with TSM, so if you find you're on the fence about drink #2 or #3, then quit drinking for the rest of the day.
