Kind of wish I had done this from the beginning but here we are. Lately, more than any urge related issues, my life itself has been very challenging. I feel like by day 60 I had a pretty good control over my urges, to the point where it was no longer even a temptation. Lately, my life itself has been so difficult that I’ve been looking for an escape of some sort. Up to now, working out every day till I sweat and cant do any more has been my medicine for managing any emotional obstacles…but lately…even that hasn’t been enough. I am alone. I am struggling to make ends meet…and I don’t know how long I can keep this up. So I’ve been forcing myself to at least not be alone by being in public places as long as I can. Anyways I think its important to keep reminding myself, why I’m even on this journey. I don’t want to be a slave to my urges and give up. Not only that…I don’t want to be a slave to life’s challenges. No matter the circumstances, I don’t want to make an excuse and suffer. I can always decide to have a positive attitude…and this I take comfort in. I may make mistakes and complain at times but I choose to always get back up on my feet. I choose to be happy. I choose to not give up.
