Day 83 for me completely cold turkey no help no counselling NADA.
I've been doing really well until today..... It's Xmas soon and although I completed the Xmas shopping in September (!! Yes organised!!)
I feel broke. I'm feeling massive urges to gamble. I'm blocked on everything and today's urges are driving me insane. It's like a fight in my mind
Any ideas on what to do?
80% of what you have experienced in the past helps you make sense of 20% of current reality.
If you have urges you have kicked of a trigger that is making you think about urges what is already stored in your computer. So it is just memories. You want to forget or get back to normal you will need to catch some relaxing meditation music sit down on a cushion. close your eyes and focus on your breathing for 5-10 minutes.
You would be doing that to get back to your own reality. Forget the meditation part if you are not used to it
just do the breathing so that you start to focus on what is happening now. Then you can decide how you want to
