Day 38 !!!

Hi people !  Well I had a pretty good day today . Anxiety about 10% most the day peaked to about 30% for about an hour or so . Still working out . I will tell you guys what I did when any cravings hit . I wrote some things down about what this drug did to me and when I'm feeling any cravings I pick it up and read it . Sends shivers down my spine but it seems to work for me . Maybe it will work for some of you also . Take care .  Jimmy

Thank you Jimmy, I needed to hear some good news. I'm on day 12, and have had a pretty hard last 2 days. Started waking up at 3 in the morning again. Is this normal? I stopped the klonopin for a couple of days, but had to take .5 twice today. Why aren't I "there" yet?

I think the journaling is a great idea. I should start that while I have all this "up" time on my hands, huh? I have a battle going on in my head, that whenever I feel a craving, I then feel guilty and miserable at the same time. This *****.

I also started a journal, once i found this site and jus started writing stuff down I saw in here and it helps me to gather my thoughts. I also think..hope if i need to I can refer back to it in a time of need. Great Idea Jimmy and congrats on your ability to quit. I never thought it would be this hard.
