Yes, you can do it! Your desire to WANT to be CLEAN has to be greater that your impulse to use again. Just put your focus on how good you'll feel about yourself once you achieve your target clean time and keep that thought Top Of Mind. It might also be a good idea to push yourself to be around other peope while detoxing in order to keep your attention off of yourself and be Outward thinking instead of inward thinking about how miserable you may be feeling. I used NA for that as well as going to the mall and just walking around looking at other people and stuff....a great distractor indeed!
And the exercise from walking will also be very beneficial too :-)

Keep up the Good Fight!

I told myself that i would post everyday. Most days it its really hard for me. I have a lot going on in my mind but i have a very hard time getting it out in words. So its hard for me to get answers or help for what is really going on with me . But i'll keep trying.

I know it feels like ****, the w/d's are horrible but look at you, how many days now, 8? I'm so proud of people like you who put your mind to it and gut through it. You're going to make it honey, because you want to. I really believe this is the beginning of your new life. Please hang in, it can get tough but you're already on your way!!
Thinking of you,
Erin

u hang in there and don't give up just to let u no u will get to know more and more people as the time rolls on and I find it is definitely in proportion to the amount you post and respond here. The more you assert yourdelf and get into it here than the more return just as in all with life in general. Hang in there, Mike

Day 6 is good progress. Hang in there and you will start to feel better. You are mostly through the physical stuff but will also have some mental demons to deal with. Most of us have been using for a long time and the changes that we have done to our bodies takes a long time to get back to "normal". So although you will begin to feel better as your clean time increases, it will be awhile before you will be your old self again. Prepare yourself for this. Read the articles about cravings under health pages. I read them often. Don't dwell on your addiction but don't let yourself feel that you are better and can just use once in awhile. It's easy to forget the [email protected] that we went through with withdrawls believe it or not. Learn your triggers and stay away from any place where you can get pills. If you get them from an MD call him and shut yourself off. Keeping any pills in your house or keeping the doors open to access them is really setting yourself up. You will most likely go and get them at some point. Post alot and share your honest feelings with the folks on this forum and any support you have at home. EXERCISE!!! Make a promise to yourself that if you do slip up at some point you will post, get over it and continue on the path to recovery. This is not easy...just being honest. Use every source you have to stay clean. Feel free to PM me anytime you feel that you need xtra support. Sending you all of my positive wishes. You can do this. Corey
