Hard on the Joe and Charlie tapes as well as from my spiritual adviser and sponsor, "You can't crave something unless you ingest it in some way. You can be obsessive, compulsive and have the object take over your thinking to the exclusion of all else. If I have a thought, I don't have to act out in it. I may feel a desire to use, but if I say the Serenity Prayer, asking for help, the feeling will pass. All I have to do is wait it out and with my God's Help, I can do this.

Often it means, picking up literature, go on line and visit recovery sites or look at the material on line if I don't possess what I need. God answers Knee-Mail. God is of your understanding. I have used the God all of my life and in a way, He is an old tape. I had to take a spiritual journey to find out who my God was to me and build a communication with Him/Her.

Stress is a big trigger, but often it is me taking on what is not mine. Worry is fear that hasn't said it's prayers. I give to my God and I take it back, because I am not willing to wait on His Schedule.

As it says, "Avoiding Stress doesn't help." We need to acknowledge, feel the emotions, process them, and then let go and let God.
