cold turkey



Well today is day 1 of the rest of my life. It is 12:00pm right now and I am 16 hours clean. It's not very much time to most people, but to me, it's a good start. I am running on no sleep. I was up all night/morning throwing up and feeling like complete hell but I know I have to do this. I hate feeling so bad and knowing that a single pill could temporarily make me feel "better" or "normal" again. I can't wait to be "pill free" and non-dependent again! Right now it seems like that day will never get here, but deep down I know it will. It's not going to be easy but somehow I will make it through!

I know you don't believe it but it will get better, I've been told around the 5 to 7 day mark...just take it one day at a time...keep posting there are people who have been or are in the same boat as you...let us help you... I on the other hand have a son you is addicted to somas and refuses help...myself, I have got lots of help from these wonderful people and made lots of wonderful friends for life...stay with us....pm me if you need to ... I know you can do this

It gets better, believe me. After a few months, these 5 days will be like a bad dream. Just take care of yourself, try to drink gatorade and take vitamins. Itwill help. Did you look at the health pages on the forum? They are on the top right corner. Look at the amino acid protocol and Thomas recipe.

Good luck and take care of yourself, your body needs healing right now.
