I felt better knowing I had an emergency pill, it doesn't sound weird at all. I never took the "pocket pill" b/c if I did my saftey net would be gone. Some people just work that way I guess, others can't have them around b/c they will be too tempted.
I'm praying for  you, please pray for me as well I didn't make it today I was 3 days clean.

I am not sure of ur dose or DOC but calling in for this is a good reason to call in...getting clean is more important than anything right now....be sure u have no pills in ur house as it will be a temptation u do not need...keep posting

Congrats on getting your life back.  The wd's are not fun but you need to get the toxins ou  I sttt of your body. You will feel so much better not being a prisoner to those pills.  I remember in the early days of my wd i felt like i had sludge running thru my veins and they would all tell me to get out and try to exercise.  I was like you people are nuts but i figured if they were all telling me to do this i might as well give it a try.  I started out slow and by god if it didnt help.  Keep posting as it really does help.  Before you know it you will be feeling much better.  Just keep fighting and stay strong.  There is a new life out here waiting for you.  You can do this.                sara

If and when you get weak and think you're about to give in and take a pill, post here!!!

Everyone will be willing to help you gather your strength back.  Live is so much better without pills.  It might not seem like it now, but it is.

Hopefully you will not have terrible withdrawals and you'll be feeling better soon.

Best of luck.

yes, you can do this.  i am not saying it is easy but it can be done.  i know you will think i am crazy, but the sooner you make yourself exercise ...even a short walk...you will feel better.  exercise helps the brain to start to produce endorphines again....up til now the pills have supplied those.  i promise i thought ppl who told me to exercise when i came here were nuts...but then i figured it cant be worse then sitting here ...so i headed out.  the first time i didnt notice much diffrence, but the second time helped me alot so then i was addicted...lol  also check out the health pages to the right of the pages...the aminos and thomas recipe are great.  try those.....good luck...let me know if ya need to chat..
