Hey darren,I just kicked a nasty habit myself 60 days ago.Just puttin my life back together.A few things that worked for me I made sure i didnt have acess to any pills.Made sure i told my wife and people close me to that i screwed up.And now trying to figure out why i relapse.Everything is a trigger for me my back hurts,wifes pissed,that guy cut me off in traffic.....Know what i mean.......You might need a little longer than a weekend see if you can take a week or two off work.Give your body and mind time to heal and adjust to sober life.Also check out the thomas recipe really seemed to help me......Keith
Ty for your comments.....Ty Keith.....severing my ties to the pills is the hard thing....but have took measures to do so....work has always been my anti-drug per say....is the reason why my bodies so beat up....but does keep me focused...I just thought that the hardest part of it would be first 3 or 4 days....so am just gonna try to sleep it away....but Ty so much for comments....
