The moment I get overwhelmed

I instantly think about drinking. Today is only day 2 and I know I’m not going to drink. I threw out the rest of my alcohol. I just can’t shake the craving. I dyed my hair. I read. Showered. Just feeling anxious, shakes, stress. A bunch of emotions. I have a group call at 530 so in about 2.5hrs it will be my first group and I’m nervous about that and how it will go. Ugh having a rough day.

I’m almost day 2 myself & have had the same emotions. So I poured a coke, hoping the sugar in that eases my cravings.

Get your mind off it. Be active, keep yourself moving around. Go for a hike, take in the scenery and let your mind wander about other things.
