It is very difficult but with a good strategy you can pull through.

Been there, that's for sure...

Nothing wrong with yelling it out. Give yourself a set time to do it and then go do something else.

Exercise lots. Walk, ride, gym, yoga, whatever makes you feel good. Knock yourself out with endorphins and you'll sleep better.

Big hugs. You can do it!

You can do this!

DON'T take your phone from room to room with you.

DO turn the sound off on it.

Anytime you start to think about him, do 20 push ups, jump on the treadmill, take the dog for a walk, clean something!

Post here anytime you want instead!

You can do it!

You can do this. I believe in you. If you want to reach out to him, type what you want to say here instead.

NC is tough sometimes, and other times, it might be hours when you realize you havent even thought about contact them

It CAN be done, I broke NC a few times, but i keep trying, I wont give up

Stay busy, do something, anything to take your attention away from making contact

Thinking of you, hoping you're able to find something to keep your mind busy and forward thinking to a new future.
