CRAVINGS

AHHHH!!! I just had the worst cravings by far last night. I have been clean 2 weeks today!! I was miserable, I feel like a zombie, I have been up allll night. My legs were hurting so bad last night. Ibuprophen-no help. Klonopin for sleep- no help. I really hope my day gets better. I tried listening to music last night, it helped for awhile. I tried thinking happy thoughts and why I'm here to begin with and how I don't want to go back to where I started. But addiction is a powerful thing. I would never have imagined feeling this way after 2 weeks. It seems like my depression is getting worse.I have good and bad days. More good than bad or I wouldn't have made it this far. I guess anxiety starts kicking in thinking how much longer is this torture going to last. Reading the posts everyone said the physical wd' s is the easy part. Then comes the emotional. And I absolutely agree now.All I wanna do is curl up in a ball and cry my eyes out. How could anyone ever get themselves in a mess like this? Just wanted to give an update. I'll be fine,just needed to release some emotions.

Oh I know how you feel. The anxiety for me was bad too. I would jump at anything and cry for no reason. It does get better, I promise you. You are doing so good. Like Cathy said look at her cravings journal. It helped me last week!

good luck

Yes, I can also relate to the emotional feeling.. I cried while watching Hannah Montana with my daughter yesterday (lol)..why?, I do not know.. I'm struggling with day 4..and missm2..you have been such an inspiration reading all of your posts.. You just hang in there.. I wish I could be one of those on here that could tell you it will get better, but only being on day 4..I don't know..But i can tell you you are not alone.. The people on here are GREAT and it's nice knowing you have support...
