I feel like I am resisting rather than allowing the desire for wine. This month I am not drinking and I feel tonight like rubbish. Really grouchy and sensitive. This is not fun. How long does this take??? How many urges do I have to feel before the desire reduces?
I am not sure the desire ever goes away alwasys and forever. I do know that it reduces. How many times do you have to feel the urge and not drink? That I do not know. But I am confident that after 30 you will feel stronger and more able to manage the desire. The grouchy and sensitive bit is part of the deal I am afraid. It’s not fun, but grouchy wont kill you. You can feel grouchy and not drink, not snap, not rage. And when you do, take a look and learn from it. You are 12 days in. This is AWESOME! Don’t resist the urge, feel it, feel how fast and grasping it is, and dont water it with wine, what it really needs is for you to be kind to it, compassionate, give it a cuddle and a cuppa tea 😉 xx
