You might be trying to reward yourself if cravings keep happening maybe lightening your workout is in order until you figure it out

In the early days I interpreted all kinds of things as an alcoholic craving...thats's where mnemonics like HALT come in handy

Yeah, I get cravings some times after working out. I always figured it's because I dehydrate quickly and need to drink a lot of water during my workouts. I always fill my water bottle before leaving the gym and drink it on the way home. That usually takes care of it, but just in case I also keep orange juice at home, so I can drink something healthy and sweet. This plan works for me. John

I used to LOVE a cigarette after the gym ( 6 years ago). It is strange but obviously you are not alone!

It's that achievement/reward thing . . . "I've just exercised, made my body more healthy, so I know what I'll do, let's pour alcohol into that body and I'll feel even more great"

We gotta get away from this link between reward and alcohol, it's a fairy tale and a myth, one that alcohol wants to keep alive and well!!

Keep pushing through Sunflowerlife!!
