Im gna check it out! Thanks 4 the info.
a lot of this is mind over mater if you can in vision your self laying on a soft sandy beach
relaxing...that works for me but if surfing does it for you then so be it........Gnarly
it is funny cause i have always seen those cravings like waves and me riding the waves because cravings come in waves... they last for a while and if you ride them instead of panicking , you will be ok and each time with each wave , you learn the better way to ride them.
I know its just a mind thing. You think about something else. When you think about using you have to think about something else. Ill keep riding the cravings out because Im loving the way I feel today. I cant believe its Monday morning and Im not sick, I have money, and Im not tired. 15 days clean today for me. I feel like a different person.
I was told by a nurse in an AA meeting that a craving usually only last about 30 minutes.
She said just don't react to it and it will subside. Get busy doing something other than focusing on it. I found out she was right. I've always reacted rather than wait for it pass Day 25 - 4 me
I'm a spiritual kinda guy so when I would have cravings I would immediately start praying. Usually something like "Please remove this craving and help me understand why it came and how I can prevent it next time." Simple, but worked for me.
vantart- you got your 30 days comming up, gotta feel good.Alittle time goes along way. Praying goes a very long way. Just learning these tips is keeping the cravings away. Yeah!
