I MAKE MY STAND TODAY!!

Actually it started at 2pm yesterday.  NO MORE PILLS!  These damn things have taken me to a place in my life that I can no longer tollerate.  WISH ME LUCK!.  I'm not able to post at work but I will check in during the day.  The only thing that is scaring me is I have a trade show in Dallas this weekend and the pills made me work harder, made the day go by faster....you all know the excuses.
I'm ready for my life back.

That's great to hear.  I am in day 3 and going strong.  Just keep telling yourself you want your life back and you will get through it.  I used to love doing things with my family before the drugs, that all stopped and I want it back...GOOD LUCK !!!

So proud of yu, i know you have been fighting this for a while now...I think a light kind of goes off in our head that just says enough!!! I think you are there and i am so proud of you..
AS far as work i have seen many people do it, I always looked up to these people, because i thought i was strong, but i couldn't work.....I also think your mind plays a very important role in this...FIGHT hard and get your life back..
It is so worth it!!!

What a wonderful gift you are giving yourself and friends. Keep your eyes on the prize of being clean. After you feel better and a bad day hits you out of the blue. Look back and see how far you've come. For that bad day will pass. Each week sees improvement. It is not always a cake walk, but it si worth it to have your body/mind/soul/spirit back into your control again. Keep it up.
