They will pass. Drinking won't solve anything. Google urge surfing, go to an AA meeting if thats your thing, have a bath, drink some juice, eat, clean your teeth, take a walk.

There are many other things to do. You don't have to drink or need to drink. It's a craving - you don't have to act on it. You've done the best thing posting on here.Why not stick around?

They WILL pass, they ALWAYS pass......you have to starve the beast to kill him! Reach out, go to a meeting or a walk, phone a friend. Do ANYTHING but drink!

Maybe take a look in the December class too. post, read, blog, go in a chat room. SR is here to help and times like this are when you need it most

Don't drink!! The cravings will pass. Just don't drink!

I'm so sorry you want to drink. Drinking today will only prolong the cycle.
Do any of the things RAL posted. Post every minute if you need to.

And then what. The cycle continues? The obsession is relieved, temporarily. You then decide to quit; the craving return. The way to end the cycle isn't with drinking, but with quitting and staying quit.

Everybody who has attained lasting sobriety has made it over the hurdle you now face. So can you. Stay strong.

If you feed the cravings they will just come back for more and more. Stay here and chat instead perhaps?

Chilledice 12-03-2017 08:27 AM

I'll say it again, STARVE THAT BEAST!!

Stick with us :)

Wigglyworm 12-03-2017 09:03 AM

Don't know about you but 'one drink wont hurt' was always a lie when I said it to myself.

Stay strong.

I'm about to have coffee too.

Day 1 sucks. It's not worth it. Hope posting is helping.😁

Coffee was not my friend in early days, it just ramped up my anxiety, spinny thoughts, intrusive thoughts, etc.

What did help was walking - long walks outdoors. Oh, and ice cream. :)

Why don't you go out and take a bit of exercise, or do something to distract yourself.

The craving will pass--and you're right, if you drink you're back at Day 1.
You CAN do this--hang in there!

This. You are had enough good sense to get on here before you drank. You also have the good sense to ride this out. As others have stated, “tomorrow” means the horrible cycle starts again.

It appears to me you want to be talked out of drinking. You really do not want this.
