Starting day 2

I feel better today, already, than I did yesterday. I am on amino acids, LOTS of vitamins, and I put ankle weights around my ankles as often as I can to help with the leg pain.

I don't lie in bed. I get up and move. I tapered, so not everyone can do this. BUT, if you are tapering, and you do it right,  you CAN and WILL make it. But only if you have the absolute desire to NEVER CHASE THE HIGH AGAIN.

I have not had one single craving since I flushed the remaining pills.

I have stayed close to Med Help, my boyfriend, my friends in recovery, etc.

I have deleted phone numbers, prayed continuously (for those of you who believe in anything), bathed more than I ever have, and stayed true to my desire.

I am not where I want to be, no. But, I am where I am supposed to be. And day two aint so bad!!!

I slept 10 hours.

No naps during the day!!

If you are lurking, you can do this. Post. It helped me. Med help and all my new friends helped me. I received many messages last night of encouragement....THAT'S WHAT I AM TALKIN' ABOUT!!!!
Love,
Amy
