Congratulations!  Way to go.  You were always such an encourager to me.  Along with Fladdict, IBKleen, Avisg and others.  It has been 6 mos. since my last sub.  It was a heck of withdrawal and i am still fighting depression, anxiety and the sleep issue.   To top it off i have started drinking too much.  Use to i could have a glass or 2 of wine and didn't want more.  Now i want the bottle.  I am going back to the sub dr. on tuesday and see what he thinks.  I just have to get a handle on this.  I don't know what he will recommend?  I do admire him and trust him.  Any words of wisdom?  Fladdict has already told me not to go backwards.   TJack

thanks so much!!!  tjack---Are you in any kind of thearpy? i think my counsouler has helped me to stay clean, along with this forum...I know u have had a long ride , i have kept up withy you all the way when u were posting.....I also think posting and reading here more may help too....By far, this is the hardest thing i have ever done, so by no means am i saying this is easy.....But try and take it one day at a time...That is what works for me...I can't think about tommorrow or next week....
good luck
and god bless u

No, i am not in therapy and i do not want to go to aa.  I tried to send you a message and it wouldn't let me.  I would be open to the therapy and possibly the dr. will recommend that to me on tuesday.  What if he wants to put me back on a small dose of sub?  what is your opinion?  I never wanted to drink while i was on that drug.  But, i do know i can't be on it forever?  Thank you for your good wishes.  Yes, one day at a time.  I just seem to be in a hole and cannot dig myself out.  TJack

wow....thanks guys....you all have touched my life in some way!!!  There was a time that i thought i would leave this forum, no personal reason, just to move on with my sober life and get back to some kind of normacy...BUT something keeps drawing me back...Almost like i am addicted to this site...LOL  ..Then when i see someone new post i can't help but want to help them, just like the way everyone has helped me ..
Then after putting my daughter in rehab, i knew i needed to stay here, because i was scared to fall backwards....But as long as i stay , then i feel more positive that i won't...
I guess this is like my NA meeting except online..
U guys are my strenght and my hope....
god bless each of you, and especially those stuggling today...PLEASE know it gets better, and a clean life is great....

I am so very proud of you! You have helped me so much more than you know. 7 months is such a great example to follow. And no, I don't think you spend too much time here. LOL

Congratulations. 7 months seems like an eternity to me right now but it helps so much to hear from people like you who have been through what us newbies are going through and have come out the other side. Thanks for sticking around and sharing.
