2 years and 5 months. Congrats to everyone. It does get better as long as we keep doing the next right thing. All we have to do is not pick up. We can't get high or drunk that way.
Stronger than yesterday

Wow add up all the days and years we have sober together.....you guys are awesome......24 days clean and free from a long 8 year prison buzz.
I am SOOOO ready for this! lol 59 days off heroin!!!!!!!!! Life is good :)
Today is 769 days off high dose street methadone. I couldn't do it alone, I tried, but with medhelp, local support, and tons of work, I have created a whole new life. I didn't go back to pre-drugs me, I am a totally different person than I had ever imagined. I handle situations naturally that used to baffle me.
Yesterday my bank was drained from fraud, Saturday I was removed from a list for a class I am required to take or it will cost a lot and I will lose my license to drive, my property tax interest is growing faster than I can pay, my body hurts too much to work as hard as I did, my bipolar has escalated since detox, there are many, many reasons to want to escape, but I don't want to. I want real solutions now. I am really happy that I am alive and can work toward my future, even with so many things working against me. I love being sober and at peace, there is no high better.
Hang in there everyone, the best part of life is coming up.
50 days clean off Oxycontin here.
I am also an ex Cocaine and pack a day smoker and have not used either of these drugs in years.
I still smoke pot I just really like it but that's it. My motto now is no chemicals, powders or anything made in a lab. A herb here and there is ok for me.
Hi Weaver it does not seem right that you face such problems in recovery. It seems like the ppl in the least position to help, always help the most. the ppl who can afford to help the most don' care. My heart goes out to you and I thank you again for your continued help and support.
I nearly forgot to post!!! 63 days today.
If anyone just starting is wondering if it gets better, it does, I promise.
Do I still think about using? Yes. But I'm past the horrible roller coaster of emotions and severe depression. I'm still waiting for more energy and my interests in things to come back, but I've got more energy now thankfully! I exercise most days and just started some really simple yoga, try it, it will most likely help.
Good job everyone, keep on fighting the good fight!!!
It's only day 3 for me but everyone has to start somewhere. Can't wait to have 30 days
144 days!!!!! Thanks for being here everyone!!!!
199 days clean....although im dealing with kidney stones right now which has been the most painful thing ive felt in my life!!!

Gongrats on everyone's clean time, GOD BLESS
