Hola!  Your profile name caught my eye.  (I bet you're less lonely in recovery.)  I read your journals.  Those using dreams seem so real, right?   Sounds like you want what the program has to offer this time.  Where in California are you?  I almost moved to San Francisco 10 years ago, but my habit got in the way!  LOL  Keep on keepin on ;-)

I am doing great I have been really busy I am going on vacation Thursday I leave. I am having a hard time coping with my back pain and have been tempted a couple of times to ask for pills from my doc but I have this fear that if I start that again i will just get hooked. I don't know what to do for the pain anymore. I am thinking about getting cortisone shots but I HATE needles they make me pass out. I have a dream last night that I was smoking meth and that brought back memories all day today. I would never go back to that though the come down scares me from doing that. So pretty much just been hanging out. I got a little energy and I am finally getting great sleep. I feel back to normal. What about you how are you doing?

No , I am not going to get a refill. Truthfully, I kept the empty bottle in my drawer "just in case". Now I know i must get ride of it! When you questioned if I was going to refill it was a real wake up call. Why was I holding on to it? Thanks for the insite!

I feel back to my old self eating and everything. Energy is still low. I went to the vitamin shop saturday and got some vitamins and amino acids. The B-12 makes me feel a lot better. OJ works wonders too!

I agree..it is that 6pm hour...yesterday I felt it coming on so I did some yoga in the yard while my kids played around me.  It is weird because I am never really still...I work full time and have 2 kids so there is no real time for doing nothing but it is in the monotonous tasks of the day that I want to take some.  Bath time, making dinner, getting the kids to bed...during that tiem is when it is hard for me but it is getting easier.  Music definitely helps.  The other day was rough at that 6pm time so I blasted Steive Wonder with the kids and we had a dance party.  This site has helped a lot.  I am with you...excercise, music and this site can do wonders!  The L-Tyrosince vitamins and green tea are helping too.

Wanted to see how you are doing..is this day 4 or 5?  I have had a much better day today.  I agree that excercise is the most helpful thing.  If I go for a jog or get to a yoga class it improves y day and mood tremendously.  It is always that time from about 6pm to bedtime that gets tough.  I did the pills for the same reason as you...the energy upper effect.  If I was tired I could pop some pills and feel totally amped and ready to get a million things done so it is hard when I start to get tired but know I need to accomplish more for the day at work or at home.

you are right.  I took the pills for the same reasons...keep up with the kids, work longer, clean the house, etc.  However, before the pills I excercised everyday, I ran a marathon, I was happy with no checmiccal assistance.  I need to get back to that place.  How long until I can get a good night's sleep with no pill assistance?

thank you.  I am taking the vitamins.  I am also excercising.  Both of these help and I guess I am more thinking abut than craving.  THe problem is it all hits at the same time that my kids come home and I feel like I am tired and testy with them which makes me want to take pills.  It gets better, right?
