Tips for Overcoming Cravings for Alcohol

alcoholIn certain limited situations, alcohol can be beneficial. However, there are many more unhealthy situations and concerns related to drinking alcohol. Alcoholism and medicine interactions are two of the many issues.

Overcoming alcohol cravings:

  • Recognize your “triggers”. External triggers include people places, things, or time of day. Knowing your triggers helps you to avoid them.
  • Internal triggers can be from emotions or even nutrition deficiencies. When you have an urge to drink, think about what you are feeling. Are you sad, frustrated, or nervous? Try to avoid these situations.
  • Keep alcohol out of your home.
  • Avoid activities that involve drinking whenever possible.
  • Remind yourself why you are limiting alcohol.
  • Talk to someone when you can’t handle the craving. Contact your sponsor, a trusted friend, or a family member who understands.
  • Distract yourself with healthy activities like lifting weights, meditating, or watching short videos online.
  • Eat a healthy meal three times a day.
