Thanks SR!

Alone in the kitchen, fresh garlic sizzling in the olive oil, the potatoes beginning to brown, (no witnesses), and this is MY time, my have a drink and unwind, forget the anxiety of the day time. I came SO CLOSE to “cheating” just a minute ago that I ran in here to log on. I read for a few minutes…and... well, thanks. Just wondering what you all do to get through those moments…or are you that much past it that you don’t get them any more?

Well, now I'm hungry! You did what I did today. I had a real urge to run out and get a bottle of wine (it often hits me while I'm doing my artwork). I kept painting for another hour but was still feeling weak, so I came to SR and kept reading and posting and found that the urge went away. It usually happens that when I read long enough..... there will be a couple of posts that really hit home and strengthen my commitment.

In the past, I've also had times when I just had to get through it. I know it doesn't seem like it will go away, but it will. Even a whole days of urges (which is the pits.....) isn't much when you think about all the good sober days.
