So it’s one of those days. Where all I want is a drink. Had some bad dreams this morning and all I want to do is go for drive to escape my thoughts but I can’t do that so my other escape is drinking. I really fight with this feeling of saying fuck it have a drink and other side saying no you really don’t want that drink that hangover nor that black out. It’s a battle every day and some days it gets the best of me.
Can you for for a walk or are you stuck inside today?
Agree exercise and meditation are very useful tools. Get your mind out of that funk.
Yea that’s what I just did. Made some tea and went outside! Thank you it’s helping a little
Stay busy and keep distracting yourself! It’s a beautiful day, well where I’m from anyways, hoping it is your way too… Get a book and read, journal, go for a drive. I’ve noticed when I go for a sober drive, I notice my surroundings just that much more and how beautiful of a place I live… call a friend and go for coffee or lunch or dinner. Go for a hike or walk. Do a date night with your partner. Go to an arcade and play games, bring out the kid in you lol. Do anything but take a drink… you can get through today without. If I can do it, so can you… enjoy life, not drown yourself in a bottle. Theres so much more than living our lives around a drink!
Here’s a song to echo your feelings. If you struggle with SA it has a video and I’m not sure if it’s clean.
It only gets the better of you, if you give in an drink. But you won’t. You won’t because you aren’t weak. You are stronger than the child inside of you that wants what it wants, consequences be damned, and you won’t have your life ruled by a child.
I won’t drink with you today. Let’s enjoy a walk outside and a sober mindset. ♪ ♬ ヾ(´︶`♡)ﾉ ♬ ♪
