Methadone taper update

Im on day 3 down to 20 mg... only issue is a few chills and fog is lifting....which means I need to begin living life un-aided... gonna be tough. My therapist is trying to start a meeting of local professionals locally. We will sign off for confidentiality. I look forward to it. Not sure if it will be an NA meeting or not, but will meet other addicts.

Good for you!  Another step toward a drug free life☺
What a great thing for your therapist to form a group of other recovering addicts!  There is nothing better♥

How's the alcohol intake now?  Making progress?

Please keep posting....no question is a silly question.  Some one on this forum has experienced the same thing.  
Im more aware of my alcohol intake-so im not having too much-no more than i have for 20 years...im just aware of everything im ingesting. .. perhaps it is a step in the right direction. No issues, so will request the next drop to 15 Friday, which means next wed...
