good for you throwin.
just goes to show if you really want something you can do it. this is not an easy thing to do,. but people just need to find something that works for them and they have to have the desire to quit.
whenever i ran out of pills i always said i was quitting until the next pill came. i just really dont want that life anymore.
and yes the money you have saved, i know what you mean there.
hugs to you,
Good job on 3 weeks!
Read up on PAWS, because you're just now coming into its danger zone. PAWS is what took me back time after time after time.
You are well on the way to putting your active addiction into remission. However, "if you use, at all, you will reactivate your addiction." I must have been told that 1,000 time in my first rehab, but I didn't quite believe it. When I got home it really felt like I needed to use one more time, just once, and then I'd be done for good.
That admonition went through my head just as I was about to use that first time: “if you use, at all, you will reactivate your addiction.” I hesitated briefly, thinking “what if they’re right?” I should have thought about that question long and hard, but I didn’t. Instead, I immediately dismissed all concern by telling myself (out loud) “well, I just won’t let that happen.”
I just won’t let that happen. I just won’t let that happen. Who or what did I think I was? I might as well have been contemplating stepping off the roof of a very tall building wondering “what if they’re right? what if gravity will take over if I step out there?" and dismissing that concern with the very same answer: "I just won’t let that happen.” The result was as predictable.
Don't change your clean date, no matter what.
Congrats on 3 weeks~~~~sara
