Mental games/ tracker a good tool

Im writing this ,because it was very easy for me to quit. i went threw wd, thinking it was going to be hell on earth.. it was ruff , and i never want to do it again. bbut not as bad. some of you ask me , how am i doing.. for the most part fine.. but today my mind acting up.. My mind today was like, take a pill.. Very strong urge,out of no where.. It's been weeks since I thought about a pill. The only reason I think I felt this way was ,my neighbor wanted pills so bad.. she ran up and the street looking for them.. knock on my door asking if i had any. she was one of the reason i said no more. she went to the ER,said her brain hurts.. Was tested for menagtis ..had them stick a needle in her spine.. Just to get 15  percot... It's scary the thing we will do for this drug. I pray she gets help.  Me I fine.. I decided to check my tracker.. 94/91 days.. There no way in heck I'm messing that up.. Stay Strong

great job!!!    yes we will be tested by other humans.Just make sure you don't have access and don't hang around with people who do and it will make it easier. What do they say? If you hang around the barber shop long enough you're going to choke on a hairball?  no.. that's not it   oh well you get it lol

Are you getting any "skin on" time with other recovering addicts or talking to some?

You are doing great so keep it going.  Surround yourself with healthy clean people. Stay away from your neighbor, you know too much about what she has done and how many pills she has.  That info usually gets our brain kicked in to gear.  What are you doing for aftercare?

Congrats Missshawn :) Sounds like you're doing a fantastic job! Just remember...if your mind keeps acting up and whispering to you to take something, make sure you go get some support before you listen to what it says! This disease is tricky and will pop in and out for the rest of our lives...make sure you have the tools (some support) to stay clean and keep it at bay...
