Just know that addiction respects no one. As you can guess by the name I am a nurse and also an addict. If you are on day 3 you are almost through the worst of it physically.

The mental part is the hardest for some. Look to the bottom right of the page at the Thomas recipe and the amino acid protocol they should help some. You can do this and the hardest thing to ever get back is our own self respect.

Good luck and God bless

girl congrats!!! on day 3.  you have to let the guilt go. i not saying forget what you are going through but the guilt will make your mind go to the wrong place. you cant change you past no matter how much guilt and shame you give it, just let it go and know today i am clean and i am making a better future. hang in there we all have done bad things when we are addicts, but that is just what it is and we can change today. i have read alot of self-help books to help me see why i liked to numb my brain and has worked so much for me. good luck and you are in my prayers.

we have all done things for our doc we are not proud of.  some get caught and some dont.  just know that you can beat this.  when you are through all this and look back hopefully you will see what a blessing it is to overcome addiction.  there is always consequences for what we do.  remember this too shall pass and you will have a better life ahead.  good luck.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.. I know your going through a tough time.  I am just starting my journey to be drug free as well.  There is a book I highly recommend. " Become a Better You" by Joel Osteen.  It is saving my life.  Hang in there and I promise things will get better.

I too was addicted to demerol as well as morphine and dilaudid. I lost my job and the respect for myself. All this happened 19 months ago. It was horrible at first but each day got better. Just hold your head up, no one is perfect.
