Help

Hi all. I'm really struggling with my addiction and I need help.

Is there anyone who can help me with a pipe habit? The devil has me on my knees

Hi Leeward welcome to SR

I'm an addict and will do my best to help you. Try to stay clean for only for 24 hours. Focus just, if you can, on nothing other than staying clean one moment at a time. Post here often for support and make that your recovery program for now.

Great to have you with us, Leeward.

I have no experience with a pipe, but alcohol had me on my knees. I'm so glad you're going to take action.

I hope you'll continue posting - it helped me just to know I wasn't alone.

Thank u. I need to grit my teeth and get my determination back again. I struggle to reach out in honesty and find it hard to accept that I cannot do this alone.

There are some uncomfortable days when we first quit, but think how wonderful it will feel to be free of it.
I was disoriented for a while because I had relied on it to make myself feel better. In reality, it was making me more stressed & completely miserable.
You have so much to look forward to, Leeward.

Thank you for your replies, I've done a we
ek or two or more a few times but I keep letting the mind take over. As much as I keep telling myself I am not living with it I end up with the regret of using. I feel awful for being me and letting people down. I'm at a better mind place yet I still *** up????

I get these head sensations when I stop. They happen regularly and I can only describe them as brain zaps... is this normal?

Hope all is going well.
These forums used to have much activity, but now facebook rules, and we as
individuals get lost in the myriad of actions and attitudes.

I pray you find the path you seek.

Leeward, welcome! The thread below yours is titled “Insomnia” and I had it bad.. I also came here treating it as a bandaid until I could get high.. then came back 43 days ago and stayed. There are a lot of people and resources here. Stay and we will support you.. I’m glad you’re here.
