Today matches my longest "streak" of time without Oxycontin since being prescribed it in Nov of 2009. I've done 41 days, relapse for a week, 21 days, relapse for 3 months, and now this.

Here's hoping. You gotta have hope, eh?

If you're in the harder parts of the battle, hang in there. I didn't want to fight, but somehow I did, and it has made all the difference.

I'm with sara - I'm SO proud of you (I hope it's okay that I said that?)

Seriously David this is HUGE - feel proud because you should be.  And keep going - you won't believe how much better things will continue to get with more time. :)

That's all you have to do David - is just make it through each day.  It gets easier with more time but we all still struggle sometimes - so I just tell myself that all I have to do is make it through TODAY.  And it works.  :) (happy for you still)
