I only want to join with others who are not like I was last night.
I'll participate...
Time to keep it real.
For today anyway.
Step one, dump your "friends".

We are sober friends.

Time to dump using friends. My using friends helped to trip me up many a time until I let them go. One of my best moves.

Hi my name is jenny, i picked the name "godmustlove" because he's kept me alive for some reason. I have bee addicted to meth for 10 years. This last year I started shooting it up. I got to where I was helping cook the dope and shooting it up sometimes 12 times a day. I would do more dope into my vein in one day than the average drug addict would do in a month. I was raped all the time because I'd be so out of it that I didn't even care. My boyfriend, the "cook", would let his friends have sex with me and then he would beat me up for it later. Well thats making a long story short, very short. Now I am back with my children and husband thanks to the lord, they didnt give up on me. I last shot up on February 3rd. I'm going to therapy and keeping busy with gardening, ebay, fishing etc. It's still hard but getting better. Good luck to ya'll. Looking at my babies faces makes me stay sober. God bless them.
Thanks for listening, jenny aka (godmustloveme)

Hi Jenny, I'm glad you found your way here. You sound like a beautiful soul. I love your screen name by the way. God always looks out for us at the times we cannot look out for ourselves. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.

HI, I'm glad to have somewhere to turn. The area I live in just doesnt have NA meetings. AA is everywhere here but AA is so very different then what I need ya know? I know a habit is a habit but around here people REALLY look down on drug addicts even ex drug addicts. Makes it hard to talk about. I'm just glad I've found this site.

I am an addict and I went to several AA meetings. It turns out, it was better than I thought and I realized that they didn't look down on me as I thought. So it turned out to be a good experience. SR is made up of a bunch of really awesome people. You'll love it here.

You can do it! I hate that w/d week. It seems like it will never end. Heck its been around 3 months for me and I still feel like w/d kicks in once in a while. That is when I get busy. I force myself to get on the computer, do yardwork, etc. Weedeating with my gas powered weedaeter helps me get out my frustration when I'm angry or feelin antsy. I'll pray for you. Thanks for bein here to talk to, i really appreciate it by the way. We'll help each other.

We can be there to support each other. It is always good having someone to listen and understand.

Keeping busy is very important. It helps us when our minds start running rampant.

Hi all. I've been lurking for a while, and have tried to quit drinking on my own a few times unsuccessfully over the past year or so; my problem goes back maybe 6 years. I decided to seek help, was evaluated by a large rehab organization in my area yesterday, and am starting a 3 day a week outpatient program friday - I am excited to get going. Hope all of you are well and continue to remain that way!

Hi SG, so glad you are here! Getting sober is a better way to live and I'm happy for you that you realize that. Once you see that, you can take steps in that direction which you are already doing. Stick around!

Hi everyone...spent twenty-plus years denying I had a problem...today is day six of being clean/sober...it hasn't been easy, but I've hit a meeting (NA/AA) every night since my last drink, and that helps tremendously. One day at a time...

The journey always starts with a day one. We can do this.

Sounds like everyone has been doing good. I'm up to sixteen days now. Sometimes it still feels like day one, but I know that it does get better. I haven't made it to a meeting this week yet and it sucks, the feeling I get when I don't go more often. tomorrow will be the first day this week that I won't be busy, busy. I will have to hit a couple of them!

Tomorrow is day 7= ONE WEEK! Yay, made it thru some horrible cravings today and I'm very glad. w/d finally seem to be going away.

Will hit a meeting tomorrow, or maybe 2. Can never get enough.

Sober is awesome!

So if you're new, stick with it. It does get better.

Day 7.. morning: no cravings. Feeling good today. I knew this day would be better. I'm happy that I made the decision to stay sober. It isn't always easy, but it is worth every ounce of sweat from the battle!
