Well done, TR. I like a lot of the things you said here, they sound very strong and are signs that you are definitely pointed in the right direction. I found that taking the self awareness, like you are doing, to another level to be helpful. Sorta like imagining I was watching myself on TV. This helped me to see things in perspective and to understand that I was withdrawing from a powerful drug.

I also liked your idea about 'getting out of your head'. I liked doing things that needed or created a feeling of 'mastery', that was always good for a pick me up. Helping others was a good idea too, it helped me to see things from another point of view again.

Hang in, I think you are doing very well. Onward!

I'm good , seems my biggest anxieties , cravings are in the morning. I'm sleeping sporadic & dreaming weird ****. Once I get my ass up , pray , and think or do positive , I'm better able to get going. Then as the day progresses I see things in a better light. It's the getting up part that requires a push. Usually just an encouraging word does wonders

Thanks to all

TR - I am so very proud of you, my friend. Keep doing what you're doing and grab for support wherever you can find it (of course, including here!!). I was quite amazed at how much support I got when I admitted my past, though I admit...I was selective and went with my gut feeling.

Let's keep adding up those days, my friend!!

Hugs and prayers,

Amy

I'll need to suffer the loss of that crutch , daily for as long as it takes. There's a mountain of agony to climb , but at the peak is security. One less worry. A worry of my own making

I'm ok today , today I have a plan. Tomorrow too. Worry can wait

yeah using contributes to that financial instability and uncertainty and makes the moutain bigger - been there.

It needs a little faith I think Riky - faith that this short term pain will bring long term gain...and courage to believe that the pain of not using is actually less that pain of using.

you can do this
