They can come out of nowhere, but they get really huge if you entertain any lingering thoughts or excuses about giving into them.

They lose power if you shut them down hard.

As SteelRes says, "Kick them back". You can do this. It's just your AV. You are NOT having withdrawal, but a feeling, a thought. Hang in there.

I remembered the HALT skills of recovery: Hungry Angry Lonely Tired....Hunger is my biggest trigger....With concern for overeating and gaining tons of weight...I’ve decided to eat something healthy when the cravings kick in...helps a lot...

Quitting booze and beer always helps me lose a ton of weight, i don’t want to trade one addiction for another and that would be SUGAR!

Geez...

53 days now....something to be so proud of, Introvrtd.

Yes, the sugar thing was a huge issue for me early on. I didn't even eat that much of it before getting sober. The cravings for it settled down after a couple months.

oh yeah, tell me about it. I gained the "sobriety 20." 8 down and 12 to go, by eating scheduled, balanced meals 4 hours apart every day, something I never did while drinking.

Schedule breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack, and think carefully about what you'll eat at those times. It helped me tremendously.

I also stopped sugar except for very rare and planned occasions. And quit the diet soda. So yeah I really didn't like that extra weight one bit.
