Hey Girl 9 days is ausum!!!!.....your doing really well.....as for the cravings it can happen to any one of us at any time....your not responsible for the craving...your responsible for the res ponce...this is why we push aftercare so hard on the forum....most addicts need to learn what to do and how to handle cravings some people never get them others do ive been clean for quit some time but im bipolar and when it acts up like not sleeping for 3 or 4 days that is when I get them.....my doctor said I was self medicating for years....the N/A progam works for me I have lots of friends to call when my mind is in a bad place anyway the next step is to get involved with aftercare I have tryed most but N/A has been the magic bullet for my recovery it addresses not only the cravings but all the other behaviors addicts face if you havent been to a meeting yet google a meeting near you and go....anyway keep posting for support
There are a few things I learned to day on day 8. My mind is my worst enemy and I I need to find a support after care group ASAP. I am still drug free! BUT my mind was lying and lying to me all afternoon and early evening. Saying" take one pill, one pill wont hurt, you got this kicked, your not addicted anymore".. well if I am not addicted anymore why do I want pain pills when I have no bad pain to speak of? wow my mind was a smooth talker.. but I didn't give in. Hooray. I prayed and asked God for a way out of this thought process that was wreaking havoc on me. I just started thinking I don't want to wake up tomorrow and had taken pills again. As hard as it is to go to bed and sleep and then get up, there is such wonderful satisfaction that the day before I stayed clean even with all the temptation. Every day is better! but my mind is my problem right now. God Bless us
