Burst Shmurst!

Someone wrote:

My day was stressful, with occasional bursts of desire. Life carries on. I just wish there were simple answers.

Dov Replies:

In dealing with bursts of desire, Davening and getting busy are the main on-the-spot tools I know of, but slowly having our motivations change and simplifying our awareness of Hashem over time in recovery is the real key, in the end.

And anyway - even in the end - there will still be times of occasional bursts. We're addicts, after all.

And the answer to them will need to be "Burst Schmurst!" and "Keep On Trucking"... we can outlast any burst (or schmurst, for that matter).
