Urges will never go my friend, never. You have to learn dealing with them. Everytime I hv urges, I said ok, now fuck up.
Just don’t respond, and never ever touch your hammer. Don’t even think to touch it.
Initiall stages are hard obviously. But you can’t get trapped in same cycle, right?
You don’t want to keep relapsing every couple of week.
Once I myself wrote a short note in this app, after tapping that relapse button. I expressed there how I felt after relapsing and how I will be better if I never relapsed that day.
I wrote all those things which I feels after relapsing, for myself. Whenever urges got too high, I take a look on it. Feel my notes, and somehow everything went normal.
I get to realised why I am here, what I want to be. I’m so happy, that in my current 20 days of streak, I never need to read those notes again. They all are in my mind and keep me connected to my goal.
It kinda weird, but works for me. Talking to self works, always.
Don’t run away from urges, else they will catch you one day for sure.
Say them NO courageously, fight and beat them. Say NO and get back to your work, don’t wait to think something or sit free…else these things recirculate in your mind.
Every day you wake up, look yourself in the mirror. And visualize your goal, your passion, your love one. It will create a +ve energy which help you throughout a day.
No, you’re not mental
you’re not in hell
You’re a fighter and you are fighting against your older version.
It’s okay to relapse after trying, just like falling down while learning walking. It’s okay buddy, don’t blame yourself.
Everyone who have long streak was there, everyone. They try and win
Don’t let your urges control over you, its your choice okay. Say Fuck you bullshit, I won’t let you control me.
Lets start again buddy. I know it’s your day 1 but I’m sure its better thn your previous day 1. You have more energy and courage to fight this time
