When I feel an urge, I try to counter it with good things, but it’s just so persistent sometimes. After trying hard for a good while I get tired of fighting it. If the urges persist at that point (which is often the case), I lack the strength to resist, so I dreadfully give in to some little thing that makes it so much more compelling, and then it just becomes overwhelming to the ‘point of no return’... and I end up back at my addiction. AGAIN.
That’s what happened today.... I feel awful 😞
Does anyone have a method/strategy for combating urges like that? How can I reduce the persistency of compulsive urges?
It’s getting late where I’m at, so I might not see replies until tomorrow, but I’d really appreciate some advice.
