I have no idea why, but for some strange reason I am craving alcohol. I have been sober for close to 6 months. I have been doing pretty good as far as cravings go so I don't know why I am in the mood to get drunk. I am not going to because I know what the consequenses are. I have no reason to drink, period. I have been chugging water for the last half hour. This too shall pass. I keep saying that to myself.

You have done very well and keep up the good work, of course u dont need to get drunk, u will feel dreadful in more ways than one and you have no reasons to even touch a drop cause 6 months is quite amazing, be proud..

Where are all the things you wrote down about how much you hated it??? It's a physical and emotional craving. Intellectually, you can beat it I think.

Do you think there is something else going on that you are discouraged about that the urge to drink is an urge to help you get away?? Or do you think it is purely physical?

Hang in there. Be strong. Best wishes.

"I have no idea why, but for some strange reason I am craving alcohol."

Dude! It's not a strange reason, it's because we're alcoholics! Is there something going on mentally/emotionally? Or was there some kind of trigger?

I pretty much crave it every day, and it's perfectly okay to admit that - glad you did - just remember what will happen if you have a drink or two...right back to the cycle of abuse and self-loathing, and you certainly don't deserve that!!

Take care of yourself, and please post if you want to talk anything out!

Love ya -

D.

Thanks for the support. I ended up just going to sleep because it was late at night. Normally when I used to get drunk. I think I started craving alcohol because I am starting to feel overwhelming over wedding plans, school starting in a couple days, and trying to get hired full time where I am working. That is no reason to drink and I realize that but that is the honest truth. Ihave had next to no cravings the last couple of months and don't have any alcohol in the house anyway. So if I have a craving(which would be late at night) all the liquor stores are closed anyway and I would wake up without a craving. There is no way that I could actually go through the whole process of actually buying alcohol anyway. My willpower is too strong and I could never make into the liquor store. It was just an odd craving last night that happened because I was feelig a little overwhelmed over wedding plans. Now that I think of it, I just became engaged over the weekend. I have as long as I need to make plans. There is no rush. We don't have to be married next year or anything. There is so much involved with planning a wedding, but I want something very small anyway so it won't be as hard. As for school starting, I am worried that I am not going to get A's. Last semester, I got B's for the first time. I am going to work harder this semester and pray that my meds don't get me down again with bad side effects. I will take things one day at a time with work and hopefully everything will work out for the best. Love to all and a big thank you for all the support.

If you get a craving try and talk to someone in recovery. A.S.A.P. or you can try some self talk. that's what I have done at times. I tell myself that I can not drink I'm an alcoholic. I've demonstrated that time and time again.
last but not least say a prayer and know that you are not alone.
Believe in yourself You are worth it.
