Just think about Today dont worry about tomorrow or time I Know its easier said than done But just try and worry about the minutes you are on now. Not Tonight bedtime or even an hour from now Just right now this minute :) You can get through this minute right? They really do add up I promise small steps

Do You have NetFlix? watch a show that has like 10 seasons and it will keep your mind off this temporary fix but it does help . :)))

YouTube is great also whatever you can do to keep your mind busy .
I also came on the boards alot also many people on here pulled me through when I was going thru CT Wds . It helps to write and read. The support on here is amazing.

I know what you mean.  It can be so overwhelming but you are taking control of your life back and doing things to help.
You have done so well and I am so happy for you.
Start being proud of yourself for getting clean for you and for you son.
It isn't an easy thing to do and you are almost over the hump.
You did it girl, be proud.

Hey Toothfairie! Welcome to day 5, I think, right? You are doing so great! Noisy neighbors suck! I have some too! They seem to think its OK to stand in the middle of their driveway at 2am and scream out their marital problems for the whole world to hear! They have woken me up a few times! Don't you just want to scream "Shut the Effff up! I am a Secret Detoxer and I'm in the middle of withdrawals, and trying to sleep!" LOL!

Take care, I hope you have a good day! Try to stay active if possible!

LOL Sonrissa.  Yup, this is when you definitely need my pretend gun to shoot those creeps.  It worked for the annoying birds for me way back when.  I wonder if it would work for annoying neighbours.
I think we're going to need a bigger pretend gun.
I will work on it.

Just wanted to say "hi"...Day 4 .... woohoo!  I remember that was during the time that I would debate with myself on whether putting on my bra was doable or not that day!!!  Such an enormous undertaking!  And that would determine if I could consider leaving the house....leaving the house without the bra was not an option!  Gravity can be so sad..  Anyway, great job!  Keep on keepin' on.  Much love
