I'm doing ok. I've had a few episodes of addictive thinking ("Just this one time I'll do a bit more so I can get things done today," etc.), but I've managed to ignore them. I guess I'm using the Rational Recovery approach -- just ignore The Beast.
I hope I can continue. The temptation to use more just to "feel better" is difficult when one is also dealing with depression. I'm handing it, though. I'd really like to end my dependence on chemicals. I've come a looong way (from Fentanyl and Vicodin and Cymbalta), and I have to remember to give myself credit.
