Ode To 103 – Craving After The Hall
It happened today, And this one sucked,
I wanted a dip, and I thought I was F*@k3d.
I was outside playing catch with my son,
He’s eight years old, so we were having fun!
And from nowhere it hit me, smack dab in the ass,
This one was different, it took a long while to pass.
I think it was mental but I wanted one bad,
I thought I had beat this, so now I was mad.
My boy wanted to know, what happened to my grin.
I told him the truth, a crave had set in.
But Gabe just smiled, and said, “Dad it’s OK,
Just give it some time, it’s gonna go away”
Did you ever think you could learn from your kid?
I never had, and in that moment I did.
There on the spot I knew Gabe was right,
It’s a battle of the mind, and I won that fight!
So on day 103, I slammed the crave door.
Hope tomorrow will be better, cuz it’s day One-O-Four.

I had a crave that was stronger than I’d had in a while set in yesterday. I was doing an activity where I would almost always – ok ALWAYS – have a dip in my mouth. And a crave set in. I stood up, and paced for a while, It passed.
