5 things to do when you’re alone and craving alcohol

Lately, I’ve been craving booze more often than usual. Maybe it’s summer coming, maybe it’s because life has been more stressful — it’s likely all of the above. Regardless, the cravings made me think about the things I do to get a hit of dopamine instead of picking up the bottle.

First off —What doesn’t work. If someone suggests making a nonalcoholic drink will help curve craving one more time… knock it off! I just don't see how that's helpful, ever! A lemon water fucking spritzer does not distract me, it just makes it worse.
