     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
