Hello to everyone interested in continuing this thread.
The "oxycodone withdrawal help" thread is the first place I found help when I quit THE OX in December 2010. I came here sick and scared.
I am now in my sixth month clean, and feel better than I have in many years. The whole withdrawal thing is still very fresh in my memory, and there are so many people here who have helped me along the way in my recovery.
I am here to give back, and to share in any way others might find my experiences helpful. I try to give information, backed by resources for those who want to know more about addiction, as I did and still do.
But most of all, I have my experience with not just one, but several recoveries. As you will so often hear on this site, you never know how many recoveries you have left in you.
As for me, I don't know the answer to that, and so I am choosing to let this be the last one, recognized that recovery is not a state of being but a process that continues for the rest of our lives. It is an active and not a passive process.
So, get on board, all who would like to join me in that process.
