129 Days passed where did they go

Hello to everyone I know, and everyone I dont. I havent been on in a awhile but life requires more sleep when you dont pop pills to take away the boredom. How is everyone? Me im doing good just work work sleep work gym etc... Days pass fast now, thoughts as clear as they have ever been. Body reacts diffrently to situations and stress, easily annoyed but easier to calm down. My mind thinks in weeks or months ahead instead of just hours or a couple days. I find my mind recycleing all the stupid things i did when i was using and have come to the realization that im more a alcoholic than opiates being my DOC even though i went like 4 months at a time without drinking whiel i was taking opiates. To anyone starting out on this journey the begning *****, it ***** bad the w/ds are hell but the mental part is killer. But each day gets easier and easier the bad days are farther and farther apart. Its not easy but its very doable just commit to it and tell yourself each morning that "nothing can happen today thats gonna make me use" dont say "thats going to make me want to use" because thats just a lie you'll have i want to use feelings but thats just your addict brain talking not the sane or semi sane part of your brain ;). Reach out, talk to ppl , the more ppl that know what your going through the easier it is when u need a helping hand. I'll be around today here and there so post on here or send me a PM if anyone needs to talk. and HELLO EVERYONE IM NOT DEAD ;)

Welcome Back!!!!! Good to hear you're doing so well. Good to know you're okay...we've missed you..I loved your line that said "nothing can happen today that will make me want to use" I always find myself using the other line "That's going to make me want to use" whenever I've fallen off the wagon...love it. I will use it as often as I can..
Thanks for that, and thanks for the update..
Take Care,
