I'm 5 days without a drink now and beginning to feel a bit better except the cravings seem stronger and at odd times. It's better than the constant anxiety of the first few days but much stronger when they hit. I'm having trouble with eatting and I noticed that cravings are really strong afterwards. It's almost as if my body is trying to tell me that food is not what it wants. Has anyone else gone through this and if so what helps? It's like when you quit smoking and you crave it more after meals except I never drank after every meal. I skipped meals to drink though. I did get some advice about the nutrition side of this but I didn't expect the act of eating itself to bring on physical cravings for alcohol. I am also thinking about meetings. I do want to find one I'm comfortable at but I don't think I can walk into a place I have never been before by myself and face it alone. Any ideas on how to over come that?
