Quit weed - but random craving for alcohol?

Postby Ihceik » Thu Mar 10, 2016 4:15 am

Hi all, I've been quit for 1 year and 6 months and damn, life has improved substantially. Things really do take a turn for the better... BUT today I experienced a random strong urge to drink alcohol? I don't really drink alcohol at all. Normally on occasions only and I don't really enjoy it! But, today I felt a strong urge and somewhat do still now... Has anyone experienced this before? It's extremely worrying because I don't want to end up in the same boat spending my days craving a drug I don't even really indulge in. Can anyone identify with this this too? I'm hoping its normal so I can accept it and move on... Wreaking havoc in my head at the moment!

Yes, it's normal - your organism is (still) trying to find a substitute for weed. Keep on fighting, don't give up!
If you smoked weed to relax, to relieve stress, etc - you can try meditation instead. Or breathing exercises.
