Keep craving time one hour at a time. More time. Your doing amazing 35 days is awesome to say the least. You don't know me but I feel you. Just get through tonight. You will get through it I promise you can do it. Ya I know who the hell am I to promise. I guess what I ment to say is you made it 35 days so I have tons of respect for your strength you are super strong and you make me think of wonderwoman. stay strong my prayers go out to you.

Some people are glad that they go to work for the distraction, staying busy is some of the best medicine. It's the idle time that gives way to dwelling. It'll be better than your thinking, don't worry about it.

hey nat, glad to hear you are still off the stuff truly :)  Think of tonight as one night out of thousands, it is only one night and you can get through it. TRY and accept things for how they are, you said even if you were tempted to take some you can't, so instead of worrying and stressing, try and accept things for how they are as you have no other option. You won't have any seizures or major withdraws, keep yourself occupied on your job so the time goes quicker and then skip home to bed :)
