Getting anxious again....

Dang it!!! Feeling anxiety again.  It's always when I'm Hm all day.  Too much darn time to think. ESP when I know it's In the house bc of hubby's stash.  

Ugh!!  Trying to keep myself busy w kids and cleaning. Already worked out this morning which felt great.  But now I'm getting those stupid thoughts again!!!  

Have I told u how much I hate this addiction we have and how our minds can play games on us ?

Praying and trying to calm myself down.  16 days in.  No way I'm
Looking back now!!!!!!!

Can you get out of the house and do something?  Maybe take a walk or take the kids to a park or something?  (not sure where u live; is it warm enough?).

You have come SO far.  You are SO strong.  Your mind IS trying to trick you.  How about taking a bath or starting a book if you cant get outside?  Or what about renting a movie . . . something funny.  I hope the Hub's stash is hidden away?

Stay close to here - keep posting - you are going to be fine.  Take a big deep breath, relax.  You can do this.

I know it absolutely *****!!!   I can't imagine having it around - but like you said - you WONT go looking for it.  These anxieties, cravings, etc. WILL lessen and get better......hang in there.  I know you can do this.

16 Days is awesome; actually close to 17 at this point :))
