Re-married with children, business owner, percocet user. Started about 2+ years ago taking them whenever I could get them, to having access to them on a regular basis and have taken them daily now for almost a year. Have always taken them in thirds at a time, for a tota
[More]l of maybe 2- per day. Has/had been the first thing I think of when I wake each morning and through out the day. I notice my personality has changed and I am very easily agitated. and feel too foggy and groggy from them anymore. ENOUGH! Too much good ahead to let this ruin one more day for me, and my ability to be the best Mom, Wife, Daughter, Friend and Neighbor I can be. Makes me feel so isolated and not as outgoing as I like to be these days.. I pray for strength and the day I can look back and say, wow, that was a tough time but look how strong I am today and to have chosen to turn my back on these pills. I do not need them; and moreover...I don't even enjoy them anymore??! I will win the fight and know I am not alone. Love to you all on this same journey. We will persevere! This will be in our past and that is a good place to leave it-I believe strongly that I need to get to the "core" of what is going on inside me before I can move past this. Planning to start counseling-New Year resolution for me :)
"I have the feeling I am in for pain meds for a good long time.. is the reason it is harder to get off of something like Belbuca because it is a 12-hour pain reliever vs shorter pain relief such as with oxycodone? Thank you for your response"

Hey there....Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for your note.... PM me and tell me about your story.... I want to share with all as this is going to be part of my sobriety and hopefully help others either begin or keep theirs!!!! Dave
Just a quick note to say hi! Just meant that when we are using the steps we take keep going backward...when we are in early recovery they are kinda 2 steps forward and 1 step back....then eventually they keep going forward. 2 steps forward and 1 step back is progress but for some of us hard to see:o) Hope today is a 2 step forward day. Corey
Just a quick note to say hi! That still puts you 1 step ahead and that is pretty much how you have to look at recovery. Glad you are starting to feel a little better. Remember in active addiction all the steps keep going back. Let me know if I can help in anyway. Corey
