Its time for monthly Roll Call!!! Wow!! There are a lot of new people so I'd first like to say welcome!!! I post a monthly Roll Call at the end or beginning of each month for everyone to post their clean time no matter how long it is!! Admitting that we have a problem is tough but once we do we tend to lose sight of the victories that we make along the way to recovery. Even the smallest successes need to be celebrated! Yes it's tough but this fight is worth it!! So wherever you may be on your journey you're not alone. Stay strong everyone!! Let's set a record for responses this month!! We all need the support!!
20 days : ). It really does get better every day! I actually feel better without ; never thought I would say that... But my altered mind was not as clear as I thought it was and it now feels like I left the fog for the sunshine...
Wow!! Thank you to everyone who has posted so far!! I know there are many more of you out there though so lets hear from you!! We've almost reached a record number of posts so far...just a few more responses to go and were there. I really believe that we need to celebrate our victories no matter how small they are. So proud of everyone!! Stay strong!!!
well I'm only 31 days clean after i relapsed after having 10 months!!! I now know how cunning this disease is and that a relapse is right around the corner.....Guard up everyone, trust me, i am so done with the relapse crap....
On day 3 of my taper off of Norco! I've been taking it for years... but for the last 8 months I've been on 150mg/day. I jumped straight to 60mg/day and holding strong (not sleeping much, taking lots of baths, and taking my frustrations out on my sweet, amazing husband. Poor guy). The rest of my taper will be a bit slower as I'm 3 weeks post-op from a pretty aggressive knee surgery and will be fighting through painful physical therapy as I try to cut down. I'm scared. I'm hopeful. And I'm grateful I've found this community. You all are an inspiration and I can't wait till I can post that I'm completely clean! I know there will be some awful depression and hopeless days ahead of me. I also KNOW those too shall pass. Thank you, in advance, for helping through what challenges await!!!
4months and 2 weeks clean from opiates 16 yrs WAS on methedone,adderral and clonazepam for the last 10-12 yrs went cold trukey coming around. Feel so tuned into my mind and body for the first time in my life. GOD BLESS US ALL FOR TAKING THE FIRST STEP
Almost 5 days off of Norco; still long and difficult days but feels SO good to wake up (if I do get some sleep), knowing that I made it another day. Feels even better to start having a clear mind tuned in to the real world.
5, 110 days give or take a few , but always gratefully recovering...... and always working my program.....for me, it was first about why I first started to use and grief and nurturing for my inner child. Then it became about gratitude for the small things that i once took for granted, including myself. Time always rolls on, fight for your best life, and enjoy it for as long as you can. Keep up the good work people!!!!!
I just opened a tracker, and it says that my clean time is 4955 days, (i'm a bad at math). It seems that's too many days clean since July 12/ 99 so i'm gong to have medhelp check it. I think it should be 4601. Hmmm Anyways, Congrats on all the clean and sober time out there! Long term sobriety is a go.
Hey, to all you old coots out there!! Thanks for being such an encouragement and example for us....but I gotta suggestion maybe huh??? Wondering if anybody else has a hard time dividing 365 days into 1741 days or into 4955 days?? Hahaha!
Maybe when my brain heals some more, I "might" be able to convert that time into years w/o the assistance of a calculator....but I'm not countin on it!
So for today I cheated and got the calculator out....Congrats DS on 4-3/4 yrs and NHk for 13-1/2 yrs.....you guys ROCK and are leading the way~
I'm so proud of all of you. But is anyone going out to NA or AA to get there coins? you guys deserve them and should go get those things. I only wish I had as much time as you guys do. I relapsed so I'm like only 2 hours into my recovery.
