Wow, thats amazing. I really want to know when the *mental* part got better for you. I went ct from full blown addiction 100+ mgs a day and although the wds were horrid it was the mental part - depression and anxiety that led me to relapse last week. I only had a few weeks in and I wonder how much longer it would have been if I would have hung in there that it would have gotten better. Did you go through really bad mental stuff too? If so, when did it start getting better? Do you do aftercare? If so what has helped you stay clean the most. I am always interested in asking these questions of people with signifigant clean time. Most of all I want to say CONGRATS. People like you here are an inspiration to me. It gives me hope that I CAN do this for once and for all.
