Lot’s of recent threads about cravings…here is what
worked for me in early sobriety.
Sharing from my files with hope it helps someone….:yup:
I think there are 2 types of cravings
perhaps a mixture?
One type is more a habit than physical.
You drive home and your car steers into your
favorite bar or package store.
You come home tired…sit in “your: chair and
want the usual comfort of a glass/can in hand.
To sleeep better…toss down a drink.
These can be avoided by changeing your routine
Drive a different route
Change the furniture around..sit in a different place.
Fix a glass of anything non alcoholic.
If you drink booze from a can…use a glass
If you did drink from a glass…use a mug
I did time my cravings in early sobriety.
Mine were 5 to 7 minutes in duration.
seemed forever…but that was false.
I took action….drank cold watter …brushed my teeth
went for a walk…danced around the room…ate Lifesavers
I was also taking a multi vitamin and a B 12
I was following an eating plan for hypoglycemia
I attended AA daily ..committed myself to the program.
Within 2 weeks they lessened immensley… in both
intensity and duration By 2 months they vanished
The mental obcession to drink has never returned.
