What Happened?

Hi there everyone I'm new and kinda shy. I was 10 days sober, then i drank like an idiot and now 3 days sober again. I feel like crap. I know that admitting i am an alcholic and goin to meetings are good for me, but i wan the cravings to go away. i want to be happy again, and i feel anxious all the time, i can't sleep. Is this normal or am i going crazy?

Yes, you are very normal. Been there more than once. Do you have an AA sponsor?

Yep, normal. Hi, I'm addicted and want to ease my pain but don't in order to keep my life from going in the toilet. Just keep on living without it one day at a time. Call your sponsor when you think you can't stand it.

This is normal. Keep doing the next right thing & things will get better, I promise. As for cravings, they are usually fleeting. Don't dwell on them & they will pass. I used a mind exercise to help. Clear your mind & think of a word that makes you smile or feel good. Like a beautiful flower. Picture the word. Focus on it. Then start to draw a mental image of that flower. Then watch the petals open, smell the aroma, imagine how it would feel touching your cheek...the possibilites are endless & it does work. All my best.
