my husband is one month and two weeks clean!  I am happy, and proud of him, the only thing that does not have much energy yet, every day he looks better, I am making him a lot of green juices and vitamins and amino acids, b12, magnesium, omega3, to sleep he takes a melatonin, I am always asking him how sit down and let me know if you have anxiety.
