*** 5 months Clean ****
I don't normally post about my clean time and hate day or month counting , but my reason for posting this is because this is how long it took for me to feel any sense of normalcy.  My energy......I don't know if I will ever get that back the way I used to be, but its ok.  I am finally at the point that I do not have any cravings, more of a loathing for the stuff.  I never thought I would see it, but it's finally happening.  5 months.........thats how long it can take.  I hope this does not discourage anyone working so hard to reach their goal.  Its a cold hard fact.  I hope it goes much faster for everyone than it has for me..........

God Bless,
Nauty..................

We took drugs for so long we really can't expect to be back to normal in just a week.For me I'm a couple weeks post subox and today is the 1st day I feel like I have gotten over the hump.Not to say that I'm problem free but I know I won't go backwards.I know it is still a long road ahead but once you've had  glimpse of what drug free feels like,hopefully we will stay strong...Way to go on 5 months!!!

Congrads on 5 months and for being so honest about the length of difficulty. It does sound daunting but I spent alot more than 5 months abusing so I knew this road to recovery would be long but so worth it!!

Congratulations on 5 months...way to go.  I'm happy to hear that you are beginning to feel better...that is awesome.  In reality, 5 months is not all that long, although it seems so...it's all relative.  If you were getting to go on a "dream trip" to Europe for 5 months...those 5 months would fly by...see?  Again, way to go and good for you!

congrats! and your right about taking awhile to get back to normal, my hubby is over a month clean, and still feels TERRIBLE! He is so frustrated he can't stand himself! He has no cravings at all for anything but to feel somewhat normal again, just a little relief and he would not be so frustrated, but nothing yet, or as of today, which is day 32!!!!!  CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 5MOS!!!

he he he!   naughty is a great part of the forum...we need different outlooks and perspectives on issues...and we can count on naughty for that!   lol...lol in a good way you guys....naughty, u r a hoot and you have stayed to help others when many leave when they are fulfilled or whatever...naughty has stayed and stuck it out to help others..sometimes she is a little blunt/but hey/life is blunt!  I respect her thoughts and opinions even if they are not always said with lots of sugar on top!   sugar on top is not real...
let us know when you hit 6 months girl

At first I didn't want to spout about clean time, but this is one of the harder accomplishments we have done. So it is OK to mention and be proud of clean time. Look at you, 5 months and still not totally normal. Who would have thought that these drugs can mess with us so! You have done so well to be clean for 5 months. The only ones to succeed have a total commitment like you have. Good job.

Congrats on 5 months. I really appreciate the brutal honesty that it has taken that long for you to start feeling some normalcy. I think it's important that we all are realistic about that - keeps us from getting complacent.
