Checking in. Today is hard

Today is hard. My mind keeps thinking about using. My heart keeps telling me no. I keep going to God. Going on 6 days clean.

Don’t break, you can do this. Look that urge right in the face & then let it float by, like a dark cloud padding over your head. Wishing you every strength

Sometimes we have to take this a minute at a time. I hope you know God truly has you. He sometimes does for us what we cant do ourselves

I’m doing a lot better now. I’m so happy I stayed strong today. Totally worth it. These hard days really suck. I am so grateful for your responses. Brought tears to my eyes from all the support. Thank you so much for walking me through this day.

Try to occupy yourself with things you love to do, watch movies, tv series, you tube videos on subjects you like (I love SNL), listen to music/ audiobooks, go for walks, do yoga (free on you tube), cook, play with animals, draw, write in a journal, read books or silly gossip magazines, have a hot bath, organize your closet, maybe do a spring clean, try things you never done before (I learned how to sew :thread:) - Anything that you enjoy and will take your mind off using to weaken this strong connection of the brain. That way slowly, bit by bit you will change the brain association.
This worked for me in early sobriety I was constantly thinking what can I do, learn that will help me take my mind away from relapsing. Until the day my associations with drug faded.
it’s not easy, but is doable and the benefits are beyond rewarding! Keep going I believe in you!
