Its That Time! December 2014 Roll Call!!

I hope everybody had a clean and blessed Thanksgiving! A lot of people relapse around the holidays especially because of feeling alone. That is why it is very important to have a solid recovery foundation with a support network...someone you can reach out to in time of need.

So here we are in the last month of 2014. If your reading this you are alive and that in itself is a blessing. So this thread is for everyone to post there clean time or just introduce themselves. You do not have to be clean to post here. We would love to just meet you. If you are clean, please tell us about it. Share how long and anything else that we may draw hope and encouragement from.

So with that...this is the final 2014 roll call. I hope we have a lot of people check in and share! Happy holidays everyone and God bless.

Thanks Evan for keeping this post going each month!!

I'm 2 years and 2 wks clean off pain pills!!  I had my first real test couple months ago when I fell and busted my ribs....I managed with just Ibuprofen and tylenol.  If I hadn't told my doctor that I had a problem with pills, she may have offered them, but I wouldn't have taken it.  And I never even once entertained the idea of asking for pain pills. Thanks to aftercare ,setting up roadblocks and staying on this site...I had no cravings for them at all.  

I hope everyone has a safe, happy and sober holiday season!!  Bless you all and congrats on all the clean time!

4 years and 7 glorious months free from Methadone, Subs, and Fentanyl!  So great to see all this clean time!  Just think of the collective clean time that we all have together... every individual sober day counts toward that total! Whether it be years or days, it all adds up!

Hey ABN (Evan) thanks for keeping this up each month.  

I am about 8 months out from my last pain pill.  I say "about" because I don't count the individual days after the first month or so. Some people do, and some people don't.  For me, it's always been just for today.  

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to everyone.

Happy Holidays to all!  I am Karen and am new here.  I actually just set my detox start date with my boss so I could take some time off!  Im flushing my pills left on Dec 30th and my first day clean will be Dec 31st!  Thats what Im hoping for anyway!  I went from Hydrocododne 6-7 pills 7.5mg for 6 years to 30 mg of codeine.  Im switching to 10 mg next week and then will jump off from there!!!  Im so thankful I found this site!  There is so much hope and encouragement on here!!!  Thanks to everyone who shares!!!
