pills



So I was thinking about my other addictions besides drugs and wondering how many others share them.Cigarettes of course but lately tv shopping channels.it's a joke,I don't really need a printed corduroy shirt or a reversable jacket but I find myself,for lack of something better to do,watching this crap and ordering and I can't afford this stuff.
I should be cleaning house,job hunting and all those good things but since I've stopped pills my energy and motivation is kinda off and on.I have great intentions but have a problem following through.what's up with that??

Living sober kinda tough at times

rut



I always had that false courage that pain pills gave me so I'm stuck right now in almost every aspect of my life now that I'm off,not working by choice,isolated myself from my friends cause I didn't want to tell them,like they would talk definitely.I mean gossip.guess they are more acquaintances.
So,I'm bored and in a rut.Went to a few meetings but not working the program as much as I should.
I think I assumed when I got sober everything would be okay and don't get me wrong I love that I'm off that crap!!
I go to a shrink and counselor,the shrink wants to put me on cymbalta,I don't like that idea.I want to be happy naturally.

Suboxone



So I am off everything and feeling fine,I cut the dosage on the suboxone down to 1mg a day for 3 days then got off.I'm very thankful and am following up with my recovery.
