Way to go on those 49 days, that is great:) Cravings are normal for us from time to time and it's a battle sometimes, but as you know, it's worth this fight. Keep doing what your doing, you have come so far, congrats!

Have you ever read about PAWS? Are you craving right now?

thanks guys yes i am craving now - my brain seems to be stuck in a loop!

What do you normally do when a craving hits?

Sometimes,just the act of swallowing a vitamin helps!  So,get a big glass of water and take a vitamin and distract yourself !!!  

Keep posting while the craving is strong,okay?

Way to go!!!  You are knocking those days OUT aren't you?  I'm so proud of you.  When you have a bad craving, try to get a mental picture of how bad those WDs were and a visual of yourself sitting on the toilet for a few days straight!  Now.....does that pill seem worth it??? : ) LOL  

Awesome job, sweetie!  You worked hard.  Do NOT let that go to waste, or I will give you a good ol' Arkansas a$$ kickin'!!!!  

Hugs and love!

Sitting on the toilet???    LOL    Yeah...I guess that would kill a craving...HAHAHAHAHA

I think humor works, too !!
