Its That Time! May 2015 Roll Call!!

Hey everybody! Its May so its time for another ROLL CALL! For those that dont know....this thread is where you check in and tell us how long you've been clean or just introduce yourself. You dont have to be clean to sign the roll call. It doesn't matter if you are still using, been clean 1 hour or 20 years, we'd love to hear from you. If you have been lurking and haven't found the courage to reach out and ask for help...use this as a platform. I do this thread every month so people can draw hope and encouragement from one another and hopefully get someone new to post. Plus, I love hearing from all the old timers and seeing how everyone is doing.

If I've done my math correctly, May 1st made 17 months I've been clean!  Not every day is great....but I've definately gotten more able to live life on lifes terms....not MY terms!
To anyone just starting out.....it's worth it!

Hey Evan! I was just thinking about you and the fact we hadn't done roll call yet! And here you are...

I'm 5 years clean as of 4/18/2015 and very happy. It's worth the beginning struggles and all the aftercare support I received contributed greatly to my continued sobriety.

I hope everyone reading the forum checks in to say Hi; it's been too quiet around here lately!

I have 43 days from evil subs! Still have trouble finding a reason to get up in the morning but I do. Have been going to meetings and just chugging along. I don't always post but do look at them often.

I am 56 days clean and really starting to feel better and better every day. I just signed up to go back to school to become an alcohol and substance abuse counselor. At 51 years old I think I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. lol.

1041 days off street methadone, and none of those days where what I expected them to be like. It's been harder and better than I imagined and anticipated, and it is still getting better even today. Thanks for all your support and congrats to all you just deciding to quit, surrender and adapt, that is the best advice I can give, it is more worth it than you can imagine.

Hey all, I can't freakin believe it but I'm at 11 months (320 something days.) The "life" stuff, wanting new work, new relationship etc is not easy at all. BUT, I wouldn't go back to struggling w/ active addiction if you paid me or paid for my pills! It was so horrible, I can't believe I used for as long as I did. It is a GIFT to not obsess about those demon pills. It's almost like a bad dream. Oh, and no way I would be clean and sane w/o the program. No way.

p.s.- Jimmy- that was a great post! Stick around:)
p.p.s-Krissy- you have over 5 months already??? WOW!!!

Hey Evan and all!
I have 5 months off of opiates and 7 months with no alcohol.  It has been the best 5 months of my life so far!  And just seems to get better everyday...even the bad days are better than counting pills and wasting money on them!!!
Congrats to all on your clean time!!
