Day 6

Hello all!  Haven't been on in a while. Thought I would let you know that I'm still hanging in there. Day 6...woohoo!  Has it been easy?  No!  I'm having strong cravings right now and I am so tempted to use!  I won't give into it because I know the guilt and shame it brings and it will be to me like starting over again. Then in comes the depression. I am ready for the cravings to go!!  i'm tired of the emotional roller coaster!  The other withdrawal symptoms are much better!!!  Praise God!!!  Thanks to you all for the continued prayers and support. I have been reading the posts everyday and they really are helping me to get through.  Taking it min by min.  God bless you all!  Talk soon!
