25 days clean!!!

I feel soooo much better! I love the way I can truly experience "belly laughs" again. I had forgotten what thats like! I want to say my sleeping is back to normal, but i'm scared if i do, then tonight's sleep will suck. So.... use your imagination! :)  Tooth that has been giving me fits is a little better, still working on trying to get the money to get it fixed. Until then, its me and Tylenol baby! :) I have achy days, especially when its raining like today. But I've been thru hell and back and a little ache here and there isn't stopping me! Anyway.... all is great with me for now! :) Looking forward to the weekend!

Kendra, it WILL happen. PLEASE, hang in there. PLEASE! I thought I was literally dying every minute that passed by. I had to live second by second. It was THAT bad. But look at me now! You can do this!

******Someone explain "aftercare" to me****** Keep in mind, I cant go to any doctor, facility, etc. My family doesnt even know about any of this! What would my options be then?

Congrats on day 25! I'm just ahead at 29! I think your sleeping has returned to normal I have had normal nights for the past 14 nights. It's amazing isn't it? Have you gotten "high off life" yet? It's amazing when you feel your all natural endorphins kick in. For your tooth ache try sensodyne I have a tooth problem for the last couple months brush twice a day and it goes away almost completely. Good luck!

After care is like na or aa. Really helped a few years ago when my husband and I stopped drinking and smoking pot. They talk about triggers, how to identify what may influence you to relapse, our go back to the drug. Mine us pain, as that is the reason i started pills, but for drinking it was social, and pot was insomnia and hypoglycemia. If you can join a group physically, find one online. It can help with support s well. And keep coming here. Your story helped me, and it can help others, sd well as other stories can help you. Knowing your not alone can help.Thank you and I'm still going strong.

I just wanted to check on ya!  Aftercare can be whatever helps you stay off drugs by giving you the support you need. You REALLY need something since your family doesn't know.  NA or AA would help.  No cost there.  Group therapy or even talking to your pastor.  Just do something.  Trust me.  If it would work any other way, I wouldn't have spent 15 years trying to stop!  I wanted to do it my way.  NO aftercare for this chick.  I learned the hard way.  I know that you don't have a lot of money to spend, so your best bet is NA.  You will get so much support there.  Also, you will meet people who will be there for you night or day!  That feels good to know, right?

You got this if you'll follow through with the aftercare.  Try a pastor first if you have one.  That is completely confidential!
