Approximately 2am I awake feeling extremely cold and unable to get warm, my teeth chatter and my muscles are jumping uncontrollably.

I do have an aftercare program in place, as well as NA groups that I attend. Even with all the support I have It's like I still wanna go back... I don't get it. Seems like life gets stressful and I need a way to unwind with nothing that can work quite the same as opiates.

Really hang in there. as from what I ...

I will certainly try to be patient. I feel like my personality went on vacation somewhere and now I'm just a shell... That probably sounds strange. I am trying to just spend time with my family and keep my mind off of the negatives.

I am on my 6th day with no pills! Feeling like I am through the physical part of my withrawal but still dealing with the mental and emotional strains. Having some real anxiety about getting back to work tomorrow... I can tell I look depressed today because my wife keeps asking me if I'm okay. Sleep has also been difficult over the last couple of nights a...
