Oh it's saying, it's so nice out...how are you going to make it all summer (warm weather is a trigger). Everyone else gets to drink, it's not fair that you don't, what on earth will you do all summer, what will you say....and it continues....not giving in tho!

Good! Because you also have your sober voice battling it telling you the truth. You'll regret it immediately, you'll be right back to where you started and miserable. I've fallen many times to that voice and it tells me similar. 'you can have just one drink like everyone else blah blah blah' then a few days later, a couple six packs, a fifth of vodka, and hey why not throw in some wine too... every time. Have you read "Under the Influence"? I just started reading excerpts in the 'stickys' above the alcoholism forum. It helps me a bit to understand whats going on in my body concerning my cravings and why I CANT DRINK under any circumstances.

Talk back to the voice. Ignore it. Do something else. Just don't drink!

Alright, that takes care of it!!!!!!!!

I am laughing SOOOOOOOO hard right now. I read your initial post and I am doing it tonight, treating myself and having ice cream. Not a lot, but some. I have had this insatiable appetite today and although I have managed to definitely eat more than I should have did stay within the limits of what I can have for foods.

Well, you know what, the AV seems to be manifesting itself not as a "nnnnnnnng" craving rather by my uncontrolled behavior with the hungry horrors. It's the same feeling, I just want MORE of something and no food seems to be squelching it.

So one small bowl of ice cream is not going to kill me. It was exactly what I was going to suggest EJ and then I read your last post!

Oh, and if you're a chocolate lover and want something that's at least halfway healthy try Blue Diamond Oven Roasted Dark Chocolate Almonds. YUMMO!

EJ - good for you for fighting the AV! My favorite flavor these days is Ben and Jerry's 'Everything but the...". The only thing is that I have eaten quite a bit already and somehow it is losing its luster. Has the AV calmed down not that the sun has set on the East Coast?

LadyBlue - your name and B&J are synonymous in my newbie mind Hah! What an association to have. The order of the night is Häagen-Dazs vanilla.

Enjoy the night!

Ice cream has definitely become my thing since being sober. I love Ben and Jerry's AmeriCone dream (Stephen Colbert's flavor), but I'm not picky. My kids love that I am always saying "who wants to get ice cream or frozen yogurt." I'm glad you kicked the AV in the you know where!

I am sincerely grateful to be associated with Ben & Jerrys as opposed to what I used to be associated with

You're killing me EJ! DQ is right down over the hill and now you've given me a reason to go there tomorrow!

pffffff, sugarbear. Yeah, I keep trying pistachios. I eat the whole seven servings at one time.

Hi, I'm bim, and I'm an alcoholic.

Oh, lord, help me! It would take me a 24 hour plane ride to get to the nearest DQ, but , lord, I really could do it after reading all of these posts. Or Ben and Jerrys. That would be heaven....
