Drinking model


Even before joining scholars, I knew I needed to tackle my overdrinking. I have an issue with stopping, while I can not drink for days and sometimes weeks, if I open a bottle of wine, I will finish a bottle of wine. Through a number of models, I have determined that much of my buffering has been with food, work, wine and the computer. Now as I am isolating each of these things, I am looking to stop overdrinking, I did the following model this morning, 1) am I doing the model correctly and 2) in A of the intentional, is it intended that we should find more compelling desires, in order to compete with the desire to drink?

Unintentional;
C: I drink wine
T: I like wine, but it doesn’t serve me, I have no life without it
F: Sad, lost
A: Don’t stop drinking
R: Feel worse about life, continue to check out

Intentional
C: I drink wine
T: I don’t have to drink, I can figure this out
F: Resolved
A: Find more compelling desires to focus on
R: Better life without wine

This seems so simple on paper, but when I try to implement, it seems in the moment the desire to drink is way more powerful than the thought of implementing the intentional model. This is not the first morning after model I have written on wine, but I would like it to be my last.
