Second post today, because I am experiencing an intense craving and wanted to blog about it, rather than drink over it. Just past 6pm and I’ve been feeling it for about half an hour. I had to drive my son to cricket, and I used to buy wine or prosecco on my way back to drink quietly at home. My husband would then collect our son, so I could drink more at that point too. Today, I felt a strong urge to take my purse with me, and to stop off and buy some drink. So, in my new frame of mind, the first step I took was NOT to take any money with me. All the way to the cricket and back, I fumed. But it was a good decision.
I’m still slap bang in the middle of the craving though. Yuck. So my next step is going to be to make a little something to eat, and an alcohol free drink, before I cook supper. Because I need to feed the urge safely somehow.
It is difficult and painful.
