I am in the process of quitting over drinking and over eating. I keep a record of all my unanswered urges. I’m currently at 21 after about 6 weeks. There have also been a ton or urges that I have answered.

I’m trying to be the watcher of my thoughts and allow emotions but sometimes even though I notice the feeling and try to allow it (usually desire) I choose to answer urges.

Am I doing this right? As I unanswer more and more urges will I see more traction?
