Know Your Cravings

April 24, 2019


A good tip for dealing with cravings is the "The Four Ds"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 - Delay – Cravings rise and fall like waves, if you can delay a relapse decision for 20 minutes you’ll generally find the cravings dissipate on their own.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2- Distract – Craving time passes more quickly when engaged in a distracting activity for a few minutes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3 - Deep breathing – Deep breathing exercises help you maintain calm when cravings hit and stop you making a rash decision. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4 - De-Catasrophize - In the middle of craving it's easy to get caught up in a panic. Don't let inaccurate catastrophic thoughts guide your actions. ⠀⠀
