WOW I am waaaay behind on this! Sorry folks. ..been "lurking" before I jumped in and joined--but today, June 12, is day 10 of a brand new life for me. If it wasn't for some of the AMAZING people on here I wouldn't have stuck with it--hearing other stories and being able to offer my 2 cents here and there has helped more than you realize.
Congrats and big kudos to EVERYONE whether it's day 1 or day 6475. Keep posting, keep praying, keep working. WE CAN DO THIS!
great job. you can do this
Hello all its been 487 days off of pain pills.
A member on Med-Help now for better than 9 months. If it wasn't for this community I truly don't know where I would be right now. Thank You to all with Congratulations and Best Wishes as well!!..............ike
Great to hear from you Catt! Congrats on those 111 Days. (A magical # for sure -- but then every day is, right?:)
Hi guys I'm grinning from ear to ear reading all these posts!
I had to go back on my calendar to see how far I've gone! I've lost count! I'm 111 days free from methadone after 12 years! And It was from the love, support, and guidance from all these angels on this site that helped me threw and gave me another chance on life.
I love this siiiiiiite!!!! And I love you guyyyyyys!!
Sorry.....couldn't help myself.
We are so blessed.
500 pill free days here! Congrats to us all on making the decision to change our lives. I am so grateful for my life!
55 days and counting off Subs Nicotine Fried Foods Gambling Xanax and Soda.
I'm still semi withdrawing this far out. My system is shocked. However it's all worth it even this far out! Can't wait to get years under my belt. Peace to you all.
JayFive, Tapering off of Suboxone, Kloponin and a few other trivial meds. I have a goal in sight! I'm honored to be a part of this community. :)
Today marks 1072 days since my last street methadone dose. This process has been way harder and way more rewarding than I anticipated. Therefore I suggest, anticipate nothing, do what it takes in the moment and respond to life as it comes. There is nothing to go back to, forward progress is the only real choice, everything else is reaction rather than pro-action. Do what it takes for today, you will not regret the worst of it.
Hi, I'm new here, but unfortunately not new to the whole addiction scene...
I've been dry from booze since April 26th, and taking it day by day ~ so far so good. I've fallen off the wagon many times, but I keep dusting myself off and climbing back on...
I've been free from nicotine for nearly 4 years...
I've been reading through many threads here, and those who respond seems very genuine and helpful ~ which is very cool, imo
It's been a while since I posted on this thread. I'm 2 years & 6 mos. clean on the 25th. I'm finally living a pretty full life in a way I can't really remember doing before. I'm very Grateful to all of you & to some who are no longer here.
Blessings & Propers to each & every one of you!
..Oh,..& Fin,..you're awesome! (a hug your way!).
6 months on the 15th, also nicotine free for a few months.
It's June already?? haha
Congrats to Everyone! I'm 5 years and 2 mos clean from Fioricet and have never felt better!
You can do it!
Hi Everyone and Congratulations to ALL!!!!
My name is Vickie
983 off of all street drugs and prescribed meds
4071 off the Bar stool and the booze from the store
All this time I have had a long physical recovery and a very long run for the brain to flip back. I had lost most of my Family during my Recovery and had 2 Heart Procedures. I still have bouts of depression on missing my love ones and the circle that was broken.
BUT I still will keep trucking on and on.
The Lord is my Savior!!!
Hello, all. I have been on and off this site for a couple of years. I enjoy trying to help people when I think I can. I have generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, schitzophrenia, borderline personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, some mild psychotic episodes, and non-epileptic seizure activity aka 'brain zaps'. For these, I see a psychiatrist every 6 weeks, my regular doctor every 3 months, and 2 counselors every week or two. I have had a 2-week nervous breakdown, countless panic attacks, and bouts with alcohol in an attempt to self medicate. I have done time in a psych ward for my 3rd attempt at suicide. I now have a med regimen that includes Zoloft, Klonopin, Seroquel, Tramadol, and Vistiril. Ithas been a long, hard road getting the correct help and medications. I have 3 alternate personalities whom I don't identify as being 'ME': 'Flower' is five years old, and has a pet unicorn who is purple, she loves to draw and play games and do anything fun. 'Katana' is 25, and acts as my protector, in non-dangerous ways, and she is also in charge of my sex/romantic life. 'Jag' is male, unknown age, and kept in a steel cage, because all he is is pure animal RAGE. Wow, that was a poem! Anyhow, nice to meet all the new ppl, and re-unite with friends here. Have a blessed day, all. - Blu
Haven't been around here in a long time. I'm somewhere around 2 1/2 years. Hope everyone is well!
Hi! Wow, the months go by quickly!
Quit date: 9/27/14. I'm 8 months plus off oxycodone..yay!
Thanks for the post E!! 928 days off pain pills! year and half off cigs but still doing the vapor...so not completely nicotine free....yet!! Congrats to everyone on their clean time or just starting their journey!!
Congrats to you ALL - each day is a blessing.
18 months + 4 days off vicodin
85 or is it 86? days off over a decade and a half use of opiates. It is awesome that I've started to forget how many days I've been clean. That means I'm busy living and have stopped counting-progress in my eyes. 0 days off nicotine but I will persevere with that until I am successful.
To all those just starting their journey, I wish from the bottom of my soul that I could give you just a glimpse of how much better life will be in such a relatively short period of time. It would give you the strength and motivation to push through. If I knew how much better my life would soon be, it would have greatly reduced all the anxiety I had in the beginning. Every god-awful moment I went through ( and I had my fair share!) was so worth it to be where I am now. And the best is yet to come!
Thanks Krissy!!! And thanks Sarah!!!
I am so proud of you all!!!
The roll call thread always makes my feelers happy!!
