hesitant, but have to be completely honest to heal..............

i know how you feel. believe me! i was doing pretty good and ran across some pills in the house and of course i took them. that is hard to admit, but i know i have to if i want to confront this totally. now i feel horrible for the slip, knowing i have let myself down and have to start all over again. combed through the house in the middle of horrible anxiety and found them. i am feeling a little better reading comments from people who feel the same as i. not that i want people i care about to have anxiety and w/d's but knowing you're not alone is comforting. i need some love........CR_ST_NA

Just use it as a learning experience. It just goes to show how easy it is to get back on pills. You shouldn't have to start all over again. Just make sure there aren't anymore around to tempt you. Just keep going strong! Best of luck to you!

hi sweetie sorry for your relapse  but i am glad you were honest and posted it.  do you take something for the anxiety atta cks?  i have seen several ppl post lately they relapsed during a panic attack..maybe you should get smething for short term during w/ds.  just be sure you use them responsibly....i know that s hard for an addict, but be honest with your dr so he will just give you enough for a week or so.  you honesty says alot about your commitment...get back on track now and dont let this drag you down even further.  one of the problems w/ relapse is the mental toll it takes.  your mind will beat you up and call you a failure, tell you you already messed up mite as well get some more...you are never gonna do this...dont give in to those thoughts.  NOT TRUE.  you relapsed thats it.  tomorrow is a new day..welcome it with the new you.  good luck and keep posting...keep us posted about you too
many prayrs

I admire your honesty. Don't let this beat you. Today is a new day and we always have a chance for a fresh start.
I agree with Cathy that you should look into something to help with the panic/anxiety.
We're all still here for you and know that you can do this. Hang in there.
