Today i am in hell Going toe to toe with the devil himself . I feel i cant cope with this sh... I am in real agony. This morning my dealer came to the door this morning said he was worried about me coz the phone had been off all weekend (more like the £300 he has not got off me over the weekend) But i have to admit i was tempted really tempted but i never gave into him but i told him this is my mums house dont ever come here again am not having that not at my mums no way. But i think he is getting the message i hope so anyway but im rattling really badly and i know it is going to get worse no doubt about that a lot worse than ever before but still in fighting mode. When the dealer went away i came came in and actually cried but i looked at all my messages from all my freinds here and it stopped me running out to shout him backThank you my new found freinds use no who you are my special friends thank you all

you've decided you've had enough.
you're facing your demons and doing something about it.
you sent your dealer "packing".

you should be so proud of what you've already accomplished...i know i am :)   keep up the fight...keep that committment firm.  the rewards gained will be 10 fold what any drug can give you.

Great Job !   I know when I was going thru withdrawals and the devil was with me,  I made it by staying clean a second at a time... then a minute at a time.... a day at a time,  whatever you have to tell yourself to make it thru.  Now I have 165 days clean today.  I know you can do it. Keep the faith my friend.   April

I am so so so proud of you man. Just keep remembering why your doing this. I have to admit i thought about you last night and hearing you fighting through, getting rid of dealers made me smile this morning. You are quitting probably the hardest drug and even though it`s hell right now, it will pass. I am so sorry your going through this, but i can see how determined you are these past few days. You are inspiration to all of us although we may have you in clean days, this fight we get to see helps us all. Tomorrow you can get your diazepam and i hope you get some rest. I just want you to know we are very proud of you, your a strong man. Hang in there buddy and keep us updated. Your son is proud of you. Congrats on day 2, hehe

Thanks lesa it was of people like yourself that i sent him packing as i said i didnt want to let myself, my wife or my family but i didnt want to let the friends i have made here down also. I want this so bad i know it will stop eventually im not going to say iv cracked it just yet coz theres still a long way to go but i just want to be able to say im clean and have been for a while never to return. We need to beat this to get the energy to win the biggest war of all which you know what that is. Our Son. Paul has offered us some enormous support on that matter which i will talk to you later about. I cannot believe the help and encouragment i have been getting from yous all here i know i would never have done it without it. I would have crumbled this morning when he came to the door. Thats a fact. But i couldnt bear to let you and the others down. Ourselves also but we want to make yous proud of us and its only people who have been there that knows how hard it is to beat something like this.You know yourself and others who have sent messages or notes and comments this morning I thank yous all. Im having a bit trouble typing coz the bodys not doing what its told at the moment and the concentrations gone, but kim is helping with the typing. We are taking turns each when the letters start swimming in our eyes we swap over so that helps a bit. Ill speak to you soon lesa. Thanks again James and Kim

I don't know you but am beating an opiate addiction myself right now.  I can honestly say that if someone came to MY door w/a handful of pill I'ld welcome him in, rub his feet, make him tea and give him my wallet full of cash.
props to you sir for being so brave and bold.  I'm on day 2 of no vicodin - have been eating so many pills I've lost count.

man...I'm so proud of you
way way way to go brother.  you're a better man than I

You have become an inspiration to the many that do not post but derive strength and hope for what you are showing them.. You can win this war.. I look forward when we can talk and I do understand what it is like to have difficulty's communicating.. I and everyone else will be here long after this is over.. You have made life long friends here :) We all send you strength just as you right now are helping many..

Good job, suggestion is to change all your patterns.You have to get away from any triggers and write what it was like the last 90 days of your addiction , so when your head tells you it is a good idea to use again, you have it on black and white what  is REALLY like. All the best to you.

I know it's late where you are and hope your finally getting a bit of rest. Let us know how you are when you can and keep that phone off and doors locked, no dealer is ever getting another dollar out of you. Hang in there James, YOUR DOING IT!!!

If you were closer i could knock you out myself, lol. Shattered is a good word, cause at first we are truly broken, but your fixing it now. Good to hear you still hanging in there and your halfway through the worst. I hope your trying to drink a lot of fluids even if it is hard

It may seem like hell hon, I think we have all been there.  BUT, God has to be right beside you, working in your life for you to turn that person away!  Trust me the Devil wont win this one!  I don't know you but smiled when I read this and my lil brother Giz is right and R2R I couldn't have said it better :)  and all the rest are angels here to stand beside you in your fight to get back to living, I know they all helped me and it feels good to climb out of that tunnel leading to hell, life can be so rewarding.  I am still fighting demons but I have KICKED the S**t out of the one that controled my life through drugs, now if I can kick the hurt and loss in my past I will truely say I have won the game.  Hang in there
