I read this someplace on-line: It's called the
When I was drinking, I couldn't wait for a drink. "I need wine and I need it now!"
Like a little kid throwing a tantrum. If I couldn't get it, I'd sometimes sulk. If we were out shopping, I would want to stop for a drink in the late afternoon. My Loved One would say, "Just wait." But I wanted a drink right then and there.
Now that I am NOT drinking, I realize just how much alcohol had taken over my self-control. Just the thought of not getting it made me feel almost frantic.
PIG used to carry over to other parts of my life too, like shopping. Oh, but I NEED to buy those 5 pairs of shoes, 2 handbags, makeup, earrings,…well you get the idea.
But as I am growing up, (it's NEVER to late), I now know I can wait. I am discovering waiting is kind of nice. It's relaxing to not feel the rush to drink, buy, have, do everything right now.
I AM hoping now this carries over to Candy Crush. My Loved One hopes that too!
But one thing at a time, and a little candy never hurt anyone!
