Pray it out, I have found myself using this term lately and wanted to explain what it means.
Once in early sobriety I wanted to drink so badly that it hurt...I actually sat on my hands on the couch and prayed it out. I remember bagging God to remove my cravings that day. I didn't know what else to do except pray, and now looking back I know that was a good thing!
I fully get that no matter what I write on here, no matter how I sponsor, no matter how hard I try or what I say, only God and God alone can remove an alcoholics craving for alcohol (or at least that's what I believe) How do you get him/her to do this? You ask, and you keep on asking until it's gone.
Do I still crave alcohol? Not really. Once in awhile I will get a little craving and I can immediately pray it out. I say something like this "God I offer myself to thee, please take this craving away from me."
Hope everyone is having a WONDERFUL Sunday!!
