Hey all! Still clean and lovin life!

Howdy everyone!

Well it has been around 7 months now, and I am doing grrrrreat!!
Still not smoking!!!
That was the one I was worried about the most LOL.

Hope everyone is doing OK. Thought I would drop in and encourage everyone. It can be done! Im livin proof!

For those that werent around back then here is a little history. I was on ms contin 30mg, 4 to 5 per day, plus 5 - 6 norco's a day for breakthrough pain.

Went cold turkey!!! The first week was pretty bad, cant really candy coat that, but by the end of the month everything was fairly normal. About the only thing goin on in the second month was the feelings. Everything was super sensitive, touch, smell, feelings. By the end of the second month life was good.

The pain is back, but I am clean and clear headed!

I created websites to keep me from going insane LOL.
Drop in and give me a shout!! Let me know how you all are doin!


Peace out!!
