A quick thought on day 8

It's Monday and I am not hungover.
To everyone struggling, I feel pretty darn good today and I want you all to feel good too. We can do this.

I'm happy for you gman. Day 3 is almost over. Getting better. I went outside today and I could actually smell the rain n the air! It was a good feeling. Didn't realize what the percocets did 2 my system. I'm just holding on to faith it gets better and better. Depression is starting 2 lift. I think I'm starting to see that light.

I had this too. When I was a kid our backyard was full of trees and I used to lay on the lawn watching the leaves and listening to the wind rustle through them.

I was early to an AA meeting a couple weeks ago and it was quiet the wind was in the trees and I looked up and watched them and listened. It was like a little slice of heaven. I had forgotten that sound.

Coldfusion, I'm on day 3, & I'm beginning to see so clearly. I didn't realize I stopped living my life. These black clouds are starting to lift. My temp is regulating & the depression is lifting. I'm starting to blv I will be happy again.

Heading into day 4! Feeling stronger by the hour. You guys will never know how much this has helped me. Just having people that understand & know how awful the beginning of getting clean is. Thanks. Tomorrow is a new day. Looking forward to it.
