Still thinking about thinking about what day to quit!  lol  Going to NA tonight though!

It is best to have a plan and at least you are thinking about it. Going to N/A it is all a sign that you are ready to do this. Good Luck   Mary

Keeping a journal as well..... emailing to my husband everytime I write.... that way he can tell what kind of day I have had, what I am going thru at what moment... etc... b/c he has really NO clue... the man will not even take a Tylenol when his head hurts... not my first time to try and quit... but the first time I have been serious about quitting!... GO ME !.. anyway... I am sure that I will write at all times of the day... ha ha... trying to keep my mind off of things....Good for you guys.... 10 days... 3 weeks and 6 days....3/4 weeks... and even thinking about it is a big big step...!!!! gah.. Smile...... just think.. in about 6 hours from now... I will be no longer full of ****!!!!!  sorry... I tend to try and make light of my situation.. it helps me to deal....

23 months 14 days.........

I still have dope dreams.......
I run into triggers which bring on cravings..........

I still think about using.........

I think of how much easier it would be to work and go to school if I used.......
I think how stronger I would be if I used.........
I think how much easier it would be to talk to women if I used...........
I think how much easier it would be for me to get along with my boss at work if I used.......
I think how much fun I had using...........

Thanks to N/A I now know and have a better understanding how to deal with these feelings,  and thoughts...........

I'm still struggling but I feel very good.............

wow beach, I didnt know you still had that many cravings and dope dreams etc. I have you built up in my mind as a dope super hero or something, lol.    Just goes to show that even with that much clean time under your belt, it is an ongoing batttle for the rest of our lives, I guess.

The only thing I can't relate to is the fun.  I stopped having fun, stopped laughing and even stopped socializing. These were some of the main reasons I wanted to quit.  I am having alot of cravings with Thanksgiving coming up and not having the energy to get everything done ( will be having tons of people over).  I keep thinking just a few pills to get everything done.  Then I say tuff if dinner sucks it's about family & friends.  Oh I am worried about next week.    Mary

Oh ! 23 months and 14 days !  That is so great !  Do you have fun now ?

I'm on day 24, stopped cold turkey, and I'm doing well.

Iam only 18 Days, due to Suboxone....... Im getting my life back and I couldnt feel any betta, well I  probably could if i had some pills!    
But thats  not a route I may take..... My next step is to see a counselor
and go to NA meetings...Im frightened to go to NA
because I dont like speaking in front of people...
I have to do this because i dont want to relapse...
