Day four help

It's day four I'm home alone cleaning the house listening to music and craving a drink. I don't have anything but still it sucks. I feel like a drink would make me motivated to clean

Don't believe the AV...a drink will only motivate you to drink more. Hang in there! You can do it.

Doogie, early sobriety is tough. Addictive voice is strong and tries different tricks to get a drink.

It's getting better, hold on.

Doogie 37 days here. You can get through it cleaning was a trigger for me I always lived to drink while doing a manic crazy on your knees scrubbing cleaning job. To avoid that feeling I try an get any housework done during a time I'm not vulnerable like in the morning.

Keep doing what you're doing! You will soon be past day 4

Don't give in now or you'll have to go thru w/d all over again. That addictive thought is lying to you, don't listen to it.

Think the drink through... To the inevitable more drinks, to the hangover/regret tomorrow. You wanted to quit for a reason and joined here for a reason. Those reasons didn't go away just because you're craving a drink now. You can do this.
