It’s 9pm and it’s time to get ready for bed. I had strong sugar cravings tonight around the usual time, right after dinner. I tried something different this time and I was successful. When I first got sober from D&A I was told to pick up the phone and call someone when you wanted to use. Well, that’s exactly what I did tonight. I texted my friend Brandi and simply said, “I want sweets”. We talked it through and the craving passed. Instead of giving in, I CHOSE to have some apple slices with all natural peanut butter to snack on. It’s a great snack, and along with the Paleo meal we had for dinner tonight (see pic below vs. sweets) I feel good about this. It’s been over 24 hours since I ate cheesecake. Wonder how I will sleep?
Which would you choose?
