Congrats! Its amazing what can trigger a relapse. In my case, I have been dating a good friend of mine. And now that I'm sober HE is my trigger...its sad because I'm realizing I would have never crossed the line with him had I not been drunk. But I associate him with going out and drinking because thats what we did.
sounds smart to me...work the couple of buck i am sure!
Congrats on 6 weeks. What great insight to realize that your ringtone could be a trigger. There are so many things that can make us consciously or and esp. un/subconsciously trigger using and actually result in relapse. Something that as simple as a smell, sound ect. If we all got together on this forum and named our known triggers there would probably be a list with everything under the sun on it. Good luck. Corey
congrats on your clean time and the clear mind. i just read this post and i just changed my ringtone a couple days ago too. i put on a song that has meaning to me and when my phone rings im reminded how good life is clean. okay somebody call me now, lol. anyway congrats again :)
Good for you! Congrats. You could do worse than buying a ring tone, in fact, it sounds like a great purchase, just another thing to help you on your road.
Just wanted to say thanks for posting, I'm at 5 weeks and 6 sounds so much better than 5, it gives me something to look foward to!
Good move, in AA they say we have to change our playground & playmates. Anything that reminds you of the drug is sure to trigger a craving which is not pleasant. I see you've done your homework!!
I've been off norco/vicodin for 3 1/2 years after a 45 pill a day habit. I commend you for getting sober, you're right it is so worth it!!
Best of Luck, stay on track.
