Day 165- closing in on the halfway mark!
was having some urges so hit the panic button a few times and stumbled across this:
This is a simple and powerful tool that Yale Professor Judson Brewer recommends for skilfully handling our urges.
"With addicts, we use a RAIN acronym. We get them to:
R - Recognize what craving feels like.
A - Allow it to be present without pushing it away, allow it to come up, do its dance and fade away.
I - Investigate what craving feels like in my body right now with curiosity.
N - Note craving as it comes and goes along with tension, yearning, and tightness in the body.
We have found in our research that the more these addicts practice this approach, the more skillful they become at 'urge surfing,' or ride out their urges without acting on them."

Congrats bro another achievement
YAY! Well done. Come join me in the 150 thread.
125 days, my most ever and it is a dizzying number for me, yeah it hasn't been perfect, yeah it's still a battle some (most?) days but it's great to have that number of days past and to feel that I'm not in the constant spiral of relapses.
167 days- just a couple weeks to half a year!
