Hi Charlie...
Congratulations on 9 days!  Listen-for most it is the mental side of this disease that is the hardest to overcome.  You've made it through detox and that is awesome...Recovery takes work and is accumulative.  I know it's overwhelming...Your instinct to go to a NA meeting is a wonderful one.  Please do it.  The thing about sobriety is you need to guard it at all costs.  It takes hard work, patience, and determination...Your addicted brain, which is still so fragile after 9 days, is going to mess with you in all kinds of ways. It's why we talk about aftercare on here so much...You are not alone.  Take it one moment at a time...Be proud of how far you've come and don't buy the pills.  Keep it simple.  Just don't use.

          Make yourself go to a meeting it will take some of the pressure off you.  Every though about treatment for these drugs that will help to try to stay busy doing something positive to keep your mind off the pills.  Hang in there it will get better if you dont use one day at a time.
