Arrrggghhh!! Day 8. Had a great few days with minimal cravings but now I am back at work and it’s coming up to 4 and the cravings have hit! I don’t want to drink but I hate the sad and deprived feeling of knowing I can’t. I am so looking forward to the day when I get home, do dinner, bath time and bed time with my little boy then sit on the couch with my Husband and think ‘hey! I haven’t thought about a drink all day’.
it will happen as long as you don’t drink. I don’t know if you’ve heard the stray cat analogy for cravings – if you feed them they come back more often – if you cut them off totally they’ll eventually go away (actually now that I’ve written that down I’m not sure I like it any more – poor cat!)
Oh @chasingthedandelion, that day is right around the corner. You’ll find that those urges begin to fade away rather quickly – and when they pop up again, they’re brief and fleeting, and you’re all the stronger. You’re doing the hard part now, but it will get easier and more joyous every single day … promise!
