Default Struggling a bit

Struggling a bit today. Want to give in to the urges. Trying to "ride the wave" and get distracted and know that this will pass. I'm trying to self soothe, which is hard at work....but I'm still trying. Breathe. Breathe.

Sorry today has been tough. Hope you've been able to get through the urges. I don't usually post here. I recently si'd 3 weeks ago(have managed not to do it again since) after 5 years si free. The first 2 weeks after the relapse...the urges were sooooo hard to get through.

Congrats on the 5 years SI free. Even though you relapsed, that was still really good and I know you can do it again. Yeah, I'm at three weeks and three days and the urges are just getting worse, but I'm trying to get through it. Thanks for the support.

I'm sorry it is becoming more of a struggle as time goes on. I know you can do it. It's not easy but I can tell you it is absolutely worth it.

I'm kind of triggered today. Not feeling cared about. It's making it hard to not SH. But when I was having the urges the other day, and I didn't give into them, I was glad of that. So I'm really trying to remind myself of that and not give into them! It's soooo hard though.

I really hope you can hold on today as well like you did the other day. It's tough but if you did it once you can do it again.

Thank you. I'm working on it. Trying to "ride the wave". I really want to make it a month so I'm trying to stick it out.

I care about you!
Try and remember that proud feeling you get after not giving into the urges
