Rolllllllllll Callllllllll

I know we had a roll call not to long ago, but it's time for another one. There has been some negativity here lately and I was even feeling a bit negative the past couple days, but each one of us here is fighting for the same thing and we want to see everyone clean and happy. Lets brag about our clean time again, it's always great to read.

I do want the newcomers to know that they help us even if a day clean. I remember that feeling at first and being so scared, but for me reading those stories, reminds me of the beginning of recovery and it helps. We are in this together and together we will win this war. Brag away everyone. Each day COUNTS. I am 102 days and taking it one day at a time. Congrats to all:)

Glad you got through the craving don, they do get easier tho with some clean time, but we always have to keep that guard up, I am an addict for life, but one in recovery. Congrats.

Fassfeat I saw your pics for the first time just now, those are some big fish. I dont fish like i did when I was younger, but I LOVE bass fishing here. Congrats on 17 days, keep it going.

This is day 6 for me and I've been really hoping for a turn in the page soon!!!  I've felt the same for the past 3 days ever since the worst of it was over.  I definately have been tempted and have had bed thoughts about sneaking out to pick up.,  I'm ashamed to admit it, but I am feeling weak, tired and hopeless right now.

But all in all I haven't caved during any of the cravings and this I can be proud of myself for.  Six days is almost over - tomorrow will be one whole week without the damn pills -so life WILL go on.

Keep it up chico you can do this one day at a time. Well me I am not considered clean I guess, but I was clean 4 months before suboxone. I am on day 17 or 18 on suboxone. Feeling great, getting energy back, moving around, cooking, cleaning. I am living! Oh and I am still having no chronic pain since I have been on the sobxone.

194 days and never been as happy!

Newcomers, I want you all to know how much you all help me.  Every time I read a new persons post about the desperation and fear and discomfort, I relive it over again in my mind and never want to go back there!  You keep me grounded and grateful. Thank you!!!!

Yesterday was one year off opiates.The freedom is amazing...no counting pills,no hiding and stashing pills,no guilt,no worries that someone will find my stashes....and best of all...no cravings  or need for them either.
Yupper...life after opiates is good.
Congrats to all others in the beginning of their healing and at all stages of healing.

i have nothing to brag about yet. ive been chewing up about 2 to 3 80s a day. its owns and controls me. i dont sleep, eat or **** anymore.1rst thing i do when i wake even before i pee is eating a couple pills. i cant even leave my house untill the pills have kicked in. even if i got to make some phone calls i need a couple pills to kick in first. i have tried quitting ct a couple of times and the w/ds are so severe can make it through day 2. This addiction totally disgusts me. im going to work on being like you guys and being able to brag. fix this 1 problem and everything in my life will just fall back into place. I start my inhouse detox starting on monday sept. 20. very anxious and terrified. I guess i do have something to brag about. i start detox. Making that first step. Just saying it scares me i dont remember my life without the pills

7 days clean! Today is actually the hardest so far. Don't know if it was the lack of running, fluids, or vitamins today but I am crampy as heck. Maybe I did it wrong, I dunno. Writing this really helps as I have nobody to go through this with. Thanks to everyone as reading your stories really helps. Was harassed all day today by my former (word personally omitted), but I didn't give in. Not even one step back.

39 days off Ambien
213 days off of Vicodin
Many years since my last drink. Alcohol is my DOC. I always took that drink first, and then all bets were off. No guarantee what happened after that.

When a newcomer comes to any of our NA or AA meetings they're treated as the most important person at our meeting. And when they share we hang on their every word. Nothing is more important to someone in recovery than to hear a fresh, brand new story of what it's still like out there. God help any of us if we forget where we came from.

On my 2nd day with no pills.  Realized earlier today that when I thought about quitting a month or two ago I felt completely, totally scared yet here I sit tonight actually doing it.  It's not easy, but so far I've been able to distract myself or get myself through whatever I'm feeling.
