Thank YOU all! 4 days clean

So many people here to thank..I want to say that I'm not going to lie anymore.. I have been clean for 4 days in 15 minutes.  I had a stash of 50 oxycodones stashed away..But I just flushed them all down the toilet..NO MORE!!  They can call my name at night, tell me its ok to have one..(but I will have to say to them.."I'm to BIG to get down in the sewer to find them)  I can't believe all the nice people here who have helped me..My poor wife is ready to leave me becasue of lack of my sleep keeping her up.  I took her roses today at her work..I think that helped.  You see I tried working once.."It upset my stomach and had to go home"  Thats a Joke..My father was an acholic..and brothers and sisters are as well..Never had an urge to abuse achol..Never really liked the taste.  My late Father use to say he only drank after 5..but he had all fives on his watch..was a very funny guy..I miss him alot.  I still miss my pot smoking ( 30 years worth..Oxys were a better high)  Please excuse the rambling but I am feeling a little better everyday..Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers

Thanks again to all of you

I should have. But I took every one I ever got. But that was then and this is now.  try to keep your thoughts positive .  Dont let "stinking thinking" seep in.

Forget flushing them taking  a set of big ones.....This man went through 3 full days of c/t with 50 oxy in his house and stayed strong. Radiostar, you may be the coming of christ I am sorry but wow you are the man. If i had one little piece in my house right now i would eat it. I am on day 3 by the way. my mental craving beats the snot out of the physical w/d. they are all i think about. the fact that a person called me yesterday with 85 of the little demons for super cheap is bothering me i passed them up but hey...i did. Great job. you are a star!

God Bless you and yours,

It sounds like you are doing great !  I have alittle over 2 years without opiates. Thanks to God and this forum (and me)  I had a nice stash offered to me yesterday too, but for free. I had to say no many times to her and it was still very hard .  I believe in a higher power God (Jesus) and the lower power is always wanting his servant back.  I almost never got offered free stash with no strings attached when I was using. So why does all this free or really cheap stuff show up ??   I'm glad I read a few pages of my bible the past few days so I had the strength to say no to the free drugs. Which we all know doesnt end up being free. But cost us, ourselves.

congrats on $ days without any pills! what an accomplishment!
i agree with you about this web site being a tremendous amount of help while tryimg to bead our addictions. im glad i found it and im glad you all did too..


as for the free offer for a few pills, in my opinion thats the dealers whoevers offering way to get us to want more. to become the addicted people that we are so that we're goin g back for more as soon as the high feeling starts to subside. i dont know about you people but i know once i took a few pills i always wanted more. i wanted it to last forever. so a few free pills to me would mean "ah she'll be back before ya know it" i dont want that happeneing to me. not TODAY

i admire you for flushing those down the toilet. it makes for a safrer enviorement.. again way to go on 4 days clean!

It's Sat morning at 6:30am//Slept maybe 30 minutes. Tonite at 5pm will be 5 days. I heard my daughter get up and went in and confessed to her.  I told her I quit not just for me but for her as well.  She is getting married in April, and I said I couldn't in my right mind be walking her down the ailse High as a kite on Oxycodone..She was sooo supportive.. Told me how proud of me she was..As a father you always want your kids to look up to their Dad  Just made a BIG pot of coffee  letting my poor wife sleep in.  I plan on waking her with breakfest in BED  Hell, I can't even boil water  LOL
For all of you please keep me in your thoughts..I feel so strong for flushing the 50 oxys down the toilet.  I know no matter how much they call to me I can't get to them.  All of you fine folks have been so supportive, I wishI could stand in front of each one and thank you personally..Their are so many people I want to thank..bmdad has his poop in a group, please listen to him.  He has really helped me and saved me

Wish me luck today..I will try and keep posting

Feels good to be honest with the ones we love doesnt it!!  My daughter just got married a couple months ago and it was one of the greatest feelings to be part of her day being clean.  I also bawled like a baby most of the day too but that was okay!!!

Do you know how to make toast?  That might be the safest bet for breakfast!!!!!  LOL

Congrats on 5 days!!  Keep up the positive attitude!!!         sara

Congratulations to you! I have been watching your progress and am very happy for you and your success! I know that the issue of disposing of your stash was a big step. Good for you for doing it!

One quick thing that caught my attention was the method of disposal... We've always been told to flush our unwanted/unused meds, and the symbolism of flushing them is definitely not lost on a lot of us. However, it's becoming clear that flushing is turning into a significant environmental issue. Waste water systems are not designed to filter these substances, which leads to them being put back into the water supply or into groundwater.

Here's a link to an FDA article discussing both the environmental concerns and alternative methods of disposal:

Good luck to everyone and thank you so much for all your support. I'm not a frequent poster... I'm sure I'm only one of a large number of lurkers who feel tremendously supported by this community, despite our silence.

Wow, good for you!  You sound happy....I cannot believe you flushed.  What COURAGE. Can't say I would have done that.  Very very proud, keep up the WONDERFUL HARD WORK...

Do some jumpin jacks, get that adrenline movin and get a natural high.

Hey, Radiostar, we must be neighbors. My power just came back on after the quake. I was in San Francisco for Loma Prieta, and this one felt bigger to me. One nice thing about the quake is that the excitement took me out of my head and kept me from dwelling on my cravings.

Best wishes for you on your Day 5. Nowhere to go but up!
