There’s probably always gonna be the romantic urge to pick up a drink, that’s what the addiction does. It really focuses in on all the good time “feelings” and it glazes over all the bad time “realities”. I’m near 5 months and I think about it occasionally, haven’t had a good hard craving but there’s a thought here and there. I accompany those thoughts/romantic feelings with real life experiences, all the wretched shit I’ve done while drinking, by thinking the drink through/playing the tape to it’s horrible conclusion. By keeping a lot of what I could be in the forefront of my mind, it allows me to be what I’d like to be which is in the present and sober.
Keep struggling, it gets easier as it becomes a habit and you learn how to enjoy life and cope without alcohol again.
