So I know we’re all shimmery little gods and goddesses and pretty celestial beings of pure self control here, BUT when y’all feel that sinking urge (you know the one: it drops like a stone straight through the center of you) to pick up the phone and call or text someone who you’re not supposed to be calling or texting for whatever reason— what do you do instead? Why do you NOT send the “I tried really hard to hate you but I miss you and I hope you’re happy” text messages? What’s your failsafe? Who’s your sponsor? How do you manage to stick to the program? Is it a mantra? Do you binge watch Netflix? Are you a stress-baker? How do you navigate this?
