Day 13. Cravings, very, very bad right now.

I'm just trying to remember to breathe and I want those urges to just pass.

Welcome to all you newbies. Everyone is doing so great.

Progress, we do it together.

thanks Levine, "this too shall pass" is what they say.

stepping this path very lightly.

surviving the urges makes us stronger for the future.

the future looks bright from here.

Red face

I'm officially a newbie! I am on my first day. No more Nytol for me. Yes, I'm the one who thought I was a "dip" for getting myself hooked on Nytol. But some very nice people in the NA forum made me realize that addiction is a disease that goes after you with anything that makes you submit to it...whether it's booze, heroin...or Nytol. I'll write my whole story in another thread but I am officially on the wagon again...and I am MORTIFIED!

Hi Trish,
hang in there. those cravings are not fun but don't give in. they will pass.

nytol is a sleep aid with sedative qualities.

Hey everybody...you're all doing great, just keep on holding out, one day at a time. Go to lots of meetings, pray, yell, scream or do whatever it takes to stay clean/sober. We can all do this thing!!

Another newbie joining the thread here. Stumbled across the message board and it seems like a place full of positive people. Anyhow, I've smoked weed for about 10 years now and decided that I want to stop it. Only day 2 for me so far. Day 1 was alot easier than I thought it would be tho. There is no doubt in my mind that this is it for me. I'M DONE!!!!!!!!!
