Its That Time! June 2014 Roll Call!!

This year is sure flying by. Its already June! So anyways...here we are. This thread is a place where you can post your clean time or just introduce yourself. You do not have to be clean to post here. If your "lurking" take this as an opportunity to introduce yourself. If you have some clean time, post it so it can encourage and inspire others by showing them it can be done.

This forum is a great place. Old and new members alike contribute everyday and share whats worked for them in recovery. I like to encourage that because there are so many different recovery options out there. You just have to find what works for you. So maybe this roll call could be a little different this time and not only can people share there clean time but also what program they use to stay clean. Just a thought anyways.

YEEEHAW! I have 132  wonderful, glory filled clean days. This does not mean I  don't have bad days I do, but Im learning how to handle the bad days and turn them into good days. I do counseling, recovery books and this wonderful site. I have grown so much in these 132 days. Im discovering why Im an addict and what needs to change to stay in recovery. You know its actually kinda cool learning all this about me and I kinda like me this way. If you are thinking about starting this process just know if this suicidal, desperate girl can do it~~you can too. And happiness is real.

Well this is awesome.

2 months off zoplicone (never thought I'd get free of that one)
2 months off cigarettes (my achilles heel)
Halfway through my taper off benzos and doing GREAT!
I'm in pain, I hate the pills, but ultimately I am happy to be living a life where my recovery and healing is my #1 priority.
In six months I plan to be DRUG FREE and hopefully PREGNANT!
Congrats to all on your clean time.
Peace and love...

686 days off of all mind altering substances. I stay busy and don't associate with people who are using or drinking unless life deems it absolutely necessary. I run a lot and work out. I also attempt to not lie and I hit the occasional meeting at a treatment center. I try to make sure not to get too obsessed with anything and if it starts to look like trouble or if it is affecting my psyche, I generally make an adjustment.

Thank you very much Evan, for posting this again. I guess you are the new Tomskat. ;)     I do hope wherever Tomskat may be, He or She is well. ;))

Congratulations to all of you guys!  You are all great people ;)

Hello, how many people do you know ignore a miracle? I had legitimate back pain when I saw a neurologist for the first time. Many years later, I almost had surgery on my back, but decided to try to get in better shape to help it out. It worked, and I can honestly say that I am almost pain-free. I've been lying to my neurologist for over five years now to get pain pills because I'm addicted to them, but I don't need them. I've been lying to my wife and my kids so I could back up the lie. I've tried to quit on many occasions, and at one point I was able to stay off them for three months. I can honestly say I am one of the most blessed husbands, father, and people I know..... And this has to stop. I've never told anyone about my addiction. But that is about to change. I am going all in God. I always thought if I prayed enough, that Jesus would help me and I wouldn't need them anymore. I'm wrong. And ashamed, that I've never been able to ask for help. I have the most understanding wife ever and I'm going to tell her tonight. I'm a good Christian man and how could I let this happen to myself? I don't want my wife to look at me any different than she ever has. That's just my pride talking. I have read so many posts thanking God for helping them overcome their addictions. God put amazing people in my life to help me through troubled times. This isn't going to be easy, please pray for me

Day 3 again for me. This is one of the hardest things I have ever tried, if not the hardest. I always hated people like me and look, I am one of those people now. I still want pills and cannot seem to tell me dr no or help I am addicted. I am scared he will cut me off. Gee! How stupid is that!??? But I am trying again.
