    Congratulations and I am proud of you! Thirty days is awesome.

    Just maintain that focus and be vigilant of temptation as it will most certainly happen. You can't do JUST ONE again! Keep us posted and hang in there. Just take care of today and each day going forward will take care of it itself as long as you are doing the next right thing! God bless.

    Thanks Robert I am very proud and I know that for me there would not be just one so I can't ever ever use again I know just like an alchoholic can't ever drink again I can't ever use again I am a recovering addict for the rest of my life and I'm fine with that because I'm in recovery for me #1 for my life and for my family but I wanted this I was sick of chasing drugs sick of spending money on them I just got sick and tired of being sick and tired my body was worn out and they no longer made me feel good I wasn't living I was dying a slow death literally I couldn't breath right my lungs had a fraction of their capasity I was breathless just walking let alone exerting myself now that is all gone I'm in no pain very little anxiety sleeping great and loving my life my home is paid for my cars are paid for my husband and I are clean my kids are grown doing very well for their selves I don't need to use I'm in a better place than ever in my life I have my best friend back what could be better no drugs ever made me feel like my husband does pills didn't love us back I was more alone depressed and ungrateful using than ever in my life now I see just how good my life truly is and I will never go back this freedom and happiness contentment and love is the only drugs I need life is my new high living in clarity is my new addiction

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! Congrats to you, that is so amazing. I can totally relate to how you are feelng right now, as I was there a few weeks ago. It just feels so liberating to take control of your own life. I wasted so many years abusing alcohol, pain meds and coke...but now I can feel what life is truly all about. The first 30 days was like a rush and then reality sets in, but you have a clear head to deal with life's curveballs. The higher power is guiding me through things I could not deal with on my own. I know for a fact that if I did not start going to AA meetings towards the end of my detox, I would have never made it. I have zero control over alcohol and drugs, my life was completely unmanagable. Although my alcohol use was far less when I was on the percs and oxycontin, I still know deep down that I can't put anything in my body. TODAY, I feel amazing and I am sure you do too! This day is all we have...and there will be tough times ahead, but as long as we stay open, HONEST with ourselves and willing, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    We have been given a new life......EMBRACE IT! I think I am at like day 44 right now. If you are reading this and want to quit....just suck it up and make it happen. You are 7-10 from having HELL LEAVE YOUR BODY and it gets better by the day after that. sure, i have back pain still, but i don't need a heavy narcotic to sedate and suck the life out me anymore. The pain I endured under drug use is 100 times worse than the actual pain. I am so grateful for Robert advising me to get clean and then see how the pain is. I think he actually told me that on like day 3 of my detox, so I was already comitted to making the change, but it was a blessing!

    LIFE IS GOOD TODAY!!! Congrats on your 30 days...Keep it up!

    Schaff .... like I told you, the pain of addiction is so much worse than most any pain we have to endure. I'm happy for you that you stuck this out and now see for yourself what I was saying. Proud of you! God bless.
