Hi there, I noticed you have started 3 different threads, dont know where to find you. Its common practice to stay on your 1st thread, so people can find you...Your almost there now, just a few more days and the physical addiction will be about over. The mental however will take over next. You will be lacking the energy you once had on the pills, and it will seem so easy to want to take just a couple pills, but DONT, your energy and everything will come back to you. It didnt take a day to get like this, so it wont take a day to get over it..

The one thing Id like to stress to you, you feel horrible now, but I guarrantee you, your life will change for the better, if you hang in there. Alot of drug users have other disorders sometimes that bring on addiction. Such as depression, bi-polar disorder and imbalances such as these.

My life is so good today, and I come here to reassure people like you, that it DOES get better. This will probabley be the hardest thing you ever do..Not becuz of pain or anything like that. But the mental will wear you out.

I was taking 60 pills a day, and having to fill scripts every couple days,with lots of different doc's. I was in the Medical field and it became very easy for me to get what I wanted. After I kicked, I had energy back that I didnt even know I had, mostly mental I think. I got a different job, and I felt so good about who I was. N/A. and A/A...are life savers. You can make friends with people just like you, and you can learn many things thru there experiences.

I even got a job, being a recovery director in a half way house. It was a detox too. Many doors can open for you , once you get clean. I sponsered a few people, and sat on panels at my local Rehab centers and talked to folks like us, who were trying to get clean or trying to stay clean...

I am a lazy person sometimes, and can be self centered, but this experience turned me into someone that wanted to care and help others. Its dog gone amazing what God can put in your life once you let him..If you dont have a higher power, its ok..Just be willing to take advice from people like us, and you will do fine...

I wish you all the luck in the world.... ring if you need us... IM A MESS (Patti)

Patti,

Thank you so much for your kind words and advice...I am having to retype this as one of my twins thought it would be funny to play on the computer while I went to grab some water :rolleyes: Anyways, I am feeling pretty good today, I worked all day and didn't have any issues...I can tell you that I feel like it is getting WAY better...I am past the 3 day mark now, so hopefully this feeling good will continue...I have been to about 6 NA meetings, but I never did get the white key tag, hopefully by the time I go back I can get the 30 day one...LOL...I am a very shy person, so I have just been sitting in the meetings listening to everyone else, I have introduced myself, but that's it....I think it will take a little while for me to open up....

I would like to attend the meetings more often, but do to me working full time during the day and my husband attends school in the evenings, it almost near impossible...I am just trying to take this day by day, b/c I know I can do it....I kept wondering to myself why the last time I got off of them (for 8 days) I don't remembering it being very hard....I think it was because I wasn't really serious about it like I am now....Who knows....

I want you to know that you give me ALOT of inspiration and thanks again for taking your time to help....Oh, and I promise to only post on THIS thread...LOL:p
