30 days sober from norco abuse

Wow... 30 days clean!!!! Never did I picture I'd be in this spot but so so happy I am... Everyday gets better. My energy gets better and being healthy is the way of life.  This place has truly saved me. The people here the support here has been great!!!!  This was the best decision of my life.  I'm in a really good place. Today I celebrate my 30 days clean with my daughters 21st bday as well.  She was very excited for me when I told her the news.  I won't make this long... But for all u starting out just know. This can be done. I never knew life existed without pills and it does. It's even better then before. For all of u not far behind... Congrats and just know that light at the end gets brighter and brighter every day. The energy comes back... It's so so good to be alive and clean. Big shout out to all my friends here too... U know who u are!!! Thank u all for carrying me when I needed it most... Everyone have a great day!!! I know I will!!! Doing the happy dance....;)

Those first 30 days are the hardest & you did it!  Isn't it great to be back with the living again? The good, the bad, & everything else, it is so much better experiencing life in color again.  Keep moving forward, you are doing an amazing job:)

Congratulations my friend you are awesome. Just think, two weeks ago I was calling you a bad a$$ for making it 16 days, and now I'm jus plain proud of you.
Dixie you have worked so hard, and battled through every peak and valley, you are AWESOME!
All the while inspiring peeps just like me, and putting a smile on my gloomy face.
Group hug from all, and enjoy your daughter with crystal clear eyes.
