Not all Better, but Getting Better

Posted 09-16-2009 at 09:50 AM by tyler

Haven't been keeping up with this blog thing very well. Things are going pretty well. I'm almost 2 months into the job now and am fully certified and working 55-60 hours a week. It feels good though, after not working for over 3 months!! I have the chance to make very good money at this job, something I haven't done in a long time, if ever. Much of that has had to do with my constant pot smoking, over 5 months clean now!!!

Then drinking has even gotten better. I started taking Naltrexone almost a month ago, and it is helping alot. I've gone from drinking 2-3 nights a week, usually close to a fifth a night, to rarely drinking, and when I do, only a couple of drinks. I've had several times on the way home from work where I thought about picking up a bottle, but just basically lost interest in the idea. I drank "normally" at my brother's wedding, about a glass of wine an hour, not really enough to get me buzzed or anything, but to be "social", and had no desire to drink any more beyond that. That was about a week and a half ago and I've only drank once since then, 3 drinks, and I still have the rest of the bottle, no real desire to finish it off.

I did have an incident while visiting for the wedding where I was at my brothers house and smelled some good pot he had stashed somewhere. My mind went wild, all I could think about was getting alone so I could find it and break myself off some. Fortunatly I never got the chance, but even that one wiff sent me off thinking about getting some when I got home, wondering if maybe I could still smoke "a little". Gezz I've only tried that, literally, a couple hundered times with a 0% success rate, but maybe this is the time??!! Nope, got past that and am doing better now. I really dont' want to go down that road again.

Anyway, I'm at a decent place right now. I still have some depression issues. I'm in the process of changing and getting used to new meds, so that is a bit chalenging. I'm getting to see my son more, which is great. I think I'm becoming a better father, but the bar was set pretty low on that one. All in all a fairly positive time in my life over all. Been a long time since I've felt that way.
