89 hours sober and counting.....


Hello.. Iíve been reading these forums for pretty much four days straight. This is not my first time relapsing. It happened a month ago and honesty I canít believe I put myself right back in the same situation. There is a lot more to my story but for now I want to thank everyone who has wrote or responded to ppl here. It has kept my hopes going and strong. However, Iím scared to death still ... Iím no craving at all. AND luckily my withdraw issues : night sweats, headache, and the horrible burning bathroom tush. Iím still scared that I will have more issues... it doesnít help I read everything website out there. I wasnít going to register but I havenít told anyone I detoxed. Yes, I have meds and take my blood pressure too. It has been stready. The anxiety has been at bay also. Thank you for listening. 🙂

Glad you are feeling better. Just take care of yourself as if you were very sick. Eat right and get some rest. Don't read too much of the internet website medical stuff. It can make you anxious. If you feel really bad go to the dr. Just plan on never having to put yourself in this place ever again.

Yeah, I treated myself like I was recovering from a serious illness, because I was.

Congratulations on the best decision you'll ever make.

You never have to feel like this again! Welcome to the posting side.

Welcome, and I think your user name says it all. You know that it's time to do this and I sure remember feeling that way. I'm glad you're doing well and getting through the detox, and remember, you never have to go through this again.

Yay! I did a gratitude list every evening for a long time. Now it's kind of a habit to be grateful all day long.

Well done, onward to 124!

Thank you!

I have never done this before until now but I have kept a 24 hour chip under my pillow every night. Sometimes when things got really scary I held on to it tight...thought I would share. Thank you again for the encouragement and kindness. The hurt although still there, is calming....
