14,235 Days! Seem like alot?   that's just about how many days I've been here...in life. I used for about 370 of those days, consecutively.  And have been clean for just less than 50 of those days. My  secret to getting through and not experiencing cravings is sushi by the rice paddy,  red bull by the case, sugar by the kilo, and meeting nice women.....(just to talk)      ...  [*that's what happens when I get up at 4:45am on a Friday!]

30 days and remembering how awful detox was today is what is keeping me from taking pills today.

88 DAYS!!!  I can taste 90..(:

What moves me forward in my recovery is breath, hiking in the woods (my church) yoga, counselling, a strong support network (including all my lovely MH friends(:), my creative process, and most of all, being kind to myself.  In yoga, we call it Mytrie...Being your own best friend.  I wouldn't trade a single second of sobriety...I am learning how to live again, and even in adversity, it is beautiful.
Love to all...

Today is 114days off perks,,I feel like me again,,finally. It was a long painful journey in the earlier days mentally and physically but today I realize it was all worth it in the end. My guard is up. Lately I have had some cravings,,they come fast and leave as fast as they come. I try to identify what is happening in my life or what am I feeling at that moment that I am craving and deal with the feelings. I also started sucking on butterscotches candy lately when I feel a craving and that really really helps me too. And "girl" 3 days or 300days its all one and the same,,we both share the common denominator and that is we are sober. Way to go on day 3!!! Never minimize any clean time!! One day at a time and keep it simple ((Hugs))~Bkitty

Minn here. I just counted and 99 days for me. At first I tracked minutes, then hours, then days, then weeks. I kinda knew roughly how long it had been but to count it. Wow. 99. Gunn, my pennies have almost added up to a dollar ;) I am proud of each and every one of us! :D

14 Days!!! It feels SO  SO great to go places and do things without having to worry about did I bring enough pills???!!! LOL I know some of you have been there, that uhoh moment when you want to go somewhere & start frantically counting to see if you've got enough pills to get you through... no more of that for me!!! I'm so relieved to just go & do things without needing a pill....Congrats to EVERYONE!!!
