The damn urges

Hey folks, im 38 days into my journey & been feeling good but last 2 night’s I’ve had the urge to have a drink :disappointed:. Found myself sitting in my car outside the shop humming & hawing until i finally drove home. I guess it’s an on going struggle, it just snuck up on me and the desire was so strong. I’m hoping it passes…

Maybe check out an AA meeting. Works for me.


It gets better. Every time you conquer an urge, you get stronger. Meetings help!


I got stuck in that thought cycle of ‘Im just taking a break from alcohol so 1 night after 5 wks will be ok’ but deep down I knew that 1 night would just open the door to another night & another night and so on. Felt better by the time got home and felt fantastic the next morning! Same again this morning. Onward & upward it is :grin:


Good for you!
