Hi Lpg. Thanks for your post. I am around 60 days and I know the struggles come and go. One minute I am down and craving, next minute I feel the world at my feet and so free. Glad you posted here, stay close. A meeting sounds good too. This will pass. You are doing great, keep at it. I do what has been recommended on here lots; play the tape forward, play it all the way. It helps me.

Congrats on 114 days LPG - that's fantastic. Life has it's ups and downs for sure, glad to hear you are taking action ( meetings, reading ) to deal with things as the come. That's one of the keys to staying sober - recognizing the warning signs and taking preventative measures first.

Thanks Scott, yes it sure does and alcohol won't fix any of it so need to just ride it out. Yes taking action is is necessary especially when I feel like this my av is being a sneaky little bugger today. Lpg

Thanks lpg
What I have learned is what we really seek is a sense of control. What we really seek is not a drink, a drug, porn or a bet, but a sense of empowerment, in the face of feeling helpless and powerless. : Replace your attempts to regain control of circumstances with quick fixes or mood changers and instead, employ high value, direct behaviors that empower yourself! In other words, what more direct alternative actions can you take in place of the addictive act, in order to regain control of your emotions?
