The correct way to go about with active_support/action_pack/rails it is:

require 'rubygems'
require 'active_support'

time = Time.now.months_since(1)
or
time = Time.now.months.ago(-1)

Note that active_support is the library that you're after, not
actionpack (which is the library that provides the controller/view
behaviour of rails) - it just happened to work in the previous example
because actionpack requires active_support.
