Geez, I have never actually written out any of these feelings before. It's painful.
You are a beautiful child of God. You deserve better treatment.


I only had one man ever try to put me down. He didn't last very long.

I appreciate this thread. It is making me want to reevaluate my connection to certain foods.

Thank you!

Stop. Say that out loud. STOP.

I don't know if you are serious or joking, but you do not need a drink.

Take a walk outdoors. Smell the roses, so to speak.

Having a bad couple of days, friends, and there's no rhyme nor reason to it. Just trying to keep out of the shame/binge cycle and put one foot forward at a time.

Thanks for being here.

I'm definitely serious. I haven't had a craving in a while, so I'm surprised. I just came back from a walk. I'll try staying STOP. Thanks

Wanting a drink and having a drink are two separate things.
We are capable of getting over the craving.....you need to drink water or milk.
Please do it....it will help.

And sending you oodles of love SparkleKitty. xx

Play the tape through. Remember what happens when you drink. Remember what happens When you donít feed yourself properly. You deserve better. You are worth all the love inside your heart. Find a way to distract yourself.

Cravings come and go (or, desires for a drink.) I still get them at 4+ years. I just say, "Thanks for piping up, but I don't drink - no matter what."

It's just an ingrained thought. Dismiss it - unceremoniously.

Well - it seems like such a betrayal! I mean, "COME ON," I don't need this ish.

If I treat it like the two-year old baby it is, and just don't buy its whine, it goes better for me. If I try to negotiate with a two year old - well, that's silly and I end up getting frustrated.

Bimini, Sun, and Venuscat--thank you so much. I'm really touched by how supportive everyone on this thread is. I've loved being on SR, but this group is just...wow.

And it's true, wanting and having a drink are two different things. Feel much stronger already. Thanks for being there.

I find that having a meal schedule helps a lot. Plus making sure I hit that protein and calorie goal every day. Lots of vegetables and fruit. Protein, fat and carbs in every snack. Pre-planning. Exercise is huge.

HALT (Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired)- it's a really big deal if I'm not properly nourished, and especially in early sobriety. It's much easier when I am. I used to get tipped over emotionally a lot in early sobriety and really noticed it being way worse if I wasn't regularly fed.

H is the beginning of HALT for a reason, I think.

Hi my lovelies, all of you, beautiful people making the world a better place today.

The scan was clear. Small fibroids, nothing wrong with ovaries.

Food gone out now though. Something just happened and I have no idea how to make it right. Sad.

Have managed two healthy meals, and a very small binge.

I love you sunflower79. I hope you've made it to freedom in one jump, but if not come and post about it here.

I love you Prof, I love you all
