refill day!!!!

Does anyone get those "butterflies" in your stomach even when you pick up the phone to call in your new refill? Then the drive to the pharmacy is like a kid on their way to Disneyland? I wont even mention the feeling you get (i get) once the bottle is actually in my little hand.

I remember that feeling but even getting that feeling made me feel like such a loser. I'm so glad those days are over for me and I  now get that feeling when my kids come home from school and my wife gets home from work. I now get excited about the things I should be excited about and the things that truly matter.

That was very well said. Feels good to be excited over what some consider "the small things", huh? At least its getting there for me.

You know what's better???? Having an empty script bottle, was full but did the flush and jig (ask lostmarbles about that), with one refill left that will expire in 22 days and just smiling as the time runs out. I don't want to refill and don't plan too either.

Wow.

That was beautiful.  I sat here feeling sorry for that person.  Everyone of you really did a great job at diverting that negative post.

I, too, am proud not to get any more refills.  I almost WELCOME these occasional swells of anxiety and WD feelings I have.  It means I'm doing the right thing.  I can be honest with my family and friends.  With the most precious people in my life, my children.  I have to look to the future and hope that they don't become addicts.  I can now watch their patterns of thinking and doing things and am able to catch any hint that they will be addicted to ANYTHING.  Coffee, alcohol, etc.  

Thanks, all.

That was a nasty post....I have just had an awful day fighting to not go get pills...this is the first time that I almost did it....I called my friend who has been quit for a year or so....I just kept on reasoning about what good a couple of pills would do me...a few hours then feel like ****....and what then?  craving....but I am going to get thru today and hopefully I will feel better tomorrow

i agree with you, i don't think no one was harsh in the comments at all. maybe we did read it wrong, but i don't think so. you have come to far worried to break now and i know you won't, you are too strong and you know these feelings won't last, but like i always say, you can never let your guard down cause that's when it will get you. your doing great and i hope you are feeling better soon.

This is the first time I have to say that I DO NOT like a post what so ever.  I am a firm believer in speaking your mind/opinion but this information I really wish they would have kept to themselves.  This really sucks!

I thought it was an interesting post that we can all relate too.  Nothing to react negatively to ......its a reality.  There are people using and not using on this forum.  I hope he stays and maybe get something out of this place.......I think he was just stating a thought.  But, he didn't find this forum by chance.  Most of us did not find this site by accident.

None of this changes what was said.
None of this changes our decisions to get and stay free.
Hopefully Lasherlaugh will realize that there are some things that trigger others, and we all need to be careful.
Lasherlaugh, I took this at face value. It sounded clear to me you were filling an Rx. If I'm wrong, I do apologize. Otherwise, we all are trying to get or stay clean. We don't need strong visual images that could tempt. I don't believe that was your intention at all.
We all want to see each other through to being clean, including you.

She was just expressing her feelings. She didn't say it was a good thing.Shes here trying to get clean.You know you all felt that way before you all got clean. Read her journals before you comment. We don't judge people here.Most of you didn't just judge her. You bashed her. I think you all owe her an apology.
