Write down what you are feeling.
Assign a niumber to strength (1 being low, 5 being high)
Body scan -- breathing, tense muscles, anxiety)
Assign a number
Repeat above until the thought is gone
Don't tell yourself you can't drive by because your mind will interpret that as drive by
Can someone tell me the purpose of this? Thanks.
LE was 22 months and LO works four blocks from my home
"Always moving forward"

The 7 steps are meant to help you see that your urge is related to your need. Notice your emotions, your body feelings, highs, lows, urges, whatever. Brings you "down" to really pay attention and recognize. Since you know logically that the LE is about you, then you can get used to looking at YOU when the urge arises. I could use this in my same problem/solution when resisting the urge to follow/watch my LO on Snapchat.
The last step is likely so that you don't stay in the cycle..."I 'can't' which makes me want it more." Being in that dance increases the LE for that time period, for sure. You are so focused on "I can't" and "I won't" that eventually the pressure builds and builds, and then you do just want you were trying to stop doing. Keep it about you.
