My tracker says 6 days clean, I say 7, so I guess it is 6.5. It doesn't really matter. What matters is I am still clean. I realized the cravings are what scared me the most and I discovered that they go away on their own in a matter of minutes. Actually, it would take longer for a pill to kick in then for a craving to come and go. I wish I would have realized this before, I could have saved myself from alot of mental anguish and relapses..... or maybe it was from all that mental anguish and relapses that I discovered this... who knows.
Awesome job!!!!! I am right behind you starting Day 5 and I am scared as H*** about the mental cravings that always have made me cave. Well not this time, this time I tell those cravings and those pills to F*** Off and it honestly makes them go away quickly and I feel better.
that's awesome! Love that type of thinking! I had never thought of that, but I can tell you that's going to be sticking with me and I really think that adding that to my thought process is really going to help. thank you so much for sharing that. :o)
Good for you akitagurl! And you've made an important point about the cravings - It takes about 15 minutes for one to subside, and depending on how you use your drug of choice, it can take up to 45 minutes for it to kick in.
