Whew. 11 days and feeling it


Ive hit 11 days and kind of hit the wall on day 9. I know its going to ease up but this stuff gets in every kick it can on the way out. No danger of relapse since I am isolated. I might have broken down yesterday.

Enough, I know exactly how you fee! That acute WD phase is out the door. Unfortunately, the paws phase follows close behind.
Why We Donít Get Better Immediately: Post-acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) | What...Me Sober?
above is a link that was originally posted by DG on another thread. You might find it helpful.

I think I read where you drove away to stay away from" People, places and things. " You are like 90 mins. away, right? That was a great thing to do. You recognized your weakness of being too close to the Hydro.

Don't waste your efforts!

I know your addict voice is saying, "Enough, you are never going to feel good again unless you take the Hydro." Don't listen! You will feel good again. Ask anyone with several months clean time. They all feel good without it. It's just a phase! It too shall pass, ok?

Remember, enough, hydro is NOT an option! Think about the last 11 days. Think about that leg pain you suffered from. Do you want to go through that again? It only takes ONE hydro to bring you back to

Believe me, I know how it is. You are strong and can do this!

We are here for you, keep posting!

Yep. That day 9 is a b*tch. Always has been. I don't know why. Just hang in there, keep yourself busy. You will work though this. This next week will be great! Everything turns around. You start feeling more energy, and actually thinking happy thoughts.

You're doing so good. Nobody said this was easy but it's worth it. If you cave it won't get better.

I'm good! We had to be out of town for awhile and then had family visit.

I'm still good to go:-)

Thanks all!

Oh, to clarify, I am 9 HOURS away. Our trip was going in the opposite direction, not towards the tempting place

Moving has helped a ton. They are simply not accessible and I love that
