so cravings...help

well im on day 4 and was so optimistic til just now...im craving so bad. I have nothing to take, but man Im getting a little wired just thinking about it. I can't sleep,and just am wanting to calm this down. I have nothing to take my mind off of it, and no money to get any, so really no worries to access, but damn the cravings!!!!! The sweating isn't letting up either, and Im not thinking too straight at this point..kind of like a fogginess going on...

Hi,

I am sure you have read enough posts here that you heard talk of aftercare. this is why we suggest it. Getting off of the pills is the easy part, staying off takes a lot of work.

You need to get out of your own head and stop thinking about the pills. It will consume you. Now it's time to start your recovery and get to the core of the issues. I think it would help you right now to get involved in a support group or maybe even some therapy.

Hang in there and stick around.

Get out.  Get up.  Just do something.  Sitting there thinking about this during acute withdrawals will drive you crazy.  

It does get better- keep telling yourself this.

praying for you-

cravings are short-lived . . . don't fight against them, just let them pass over and through you . . .

cravingings are meaningless . . . just something all addicts get

the craving will pass whether you use or not, but if you use it will come back stronget the next time . . . if you don't use, when it returns it will be slightly weaker . . .

play "the tape" all the way through . . . where does that first use always lead?
