It's been a good morning - 3mile walk then an hour at the gym. But - the afternoon... my shoulder keeps hurting. Sooo - I want pills!! Depression's not been so bad today though. Guess I forgot that once detox is past, then come the demon whispers out in full force. And weirdly, I find it harder to resist when things are going good. But no! I am going to distract myself!! Somehow...

I hear ya..when we are in pain from withdrawal that is all we can focus on. Once that subsides a bit..then the mental urge kicks in. I find that crutch harder to beat than the physical.Distraction is a good thing..best of luck!

Story i didn't see this earlier. the bad thoughts don't last long they  pass by quickly. They sneak up when you least expect it. you are strong! Remember how great you feel today. Taking was a nightmare. Or me the rollercoaster of depression and then the anxiety Is almost gone. read post of members with the 60 and 90 days
and I know by 1 day at a time I will go get there too. look back from this day is already better getting better
we truly have identical goals. Yes we can!!!

Thanks! I'll look into them. And you're right - I feel a million times better than I did on day 1. I'd be an idiot to put myself back there again!
