It's been months since we stopped speaking but occasionally I still get really intense feelings of missing my ex. It did not end on good terms and I know we had little long term potential but it's hard because he was a good friend until it ended. Added to insult is the fact that he occasionally drunk texts me saying he wants to be friends but never talks to me about it/ at all sober. It's hard because everytime I get these feelings I go through the whole mourning process again and end up just sulking for a few days.
I would like recommendations of what I can do to get out of these funks. I know they will only last for a few days at a time and they only happen occasionally but it's emotionally draining and I feel like its a step backwards. Do you have any tricks that you do when you start to miss someone you shouldn't care about anymore?

I dated someone like this. Get angry. Like really angry. Tell yourself you deserve better. Then move on

I hang out with and talk to other people. They distract me from the current stuff going on in my life haha. Tell yourself that everything happens for a reason, that the break up was good for you, and he isn't worth it much at all. Keep busy.
I used to just emotionally break down like almost every day. It was so toxic for me lol. I know break ups are hard, but giving it time is key. There's nothing wrong with missing someone who was special to you. You'll get through it - there's going to be a day in the future when you wake up and he's no longer your first thought :)0
