... middle of nowhere so I can't find na meetings I can go to. Does anyone know how I can get a na sponsor?
Try and find the closes NA group to you and get in touch with them. A lot of times there will be small groups that meet and the only way you can find out about them is by getting in touch with someone from NA..Good luck and congrats on your 9 days. It's nice to be alive again, isn't it... Dave
If you have no luck finding a meeting use these boards and chat rooms, they are helpful. You have been 9 days already and I can remember your first question like it was yesterday. Think how much better you feel and multiply that by a new life. Thats how good it's going to get. Now that you have choose to use subs stay on them until you are true about your feelings of NEVER getting high again. You can function on subs well, but they are hard to jump from and if you are not ready you may go back to your DOC. That would be a shock to me because your doing so well. Take your time and fix up everything you messed up (if you messed anything up?) I did thats why I say, repair relationships with your closest people and give up the addictive lifestyle, then jump the subs. I don't know how bad you were into the opiates but they pull at you for along time, longer than you probably even think. Atleast they did me. Good Luck!!! I welcome you as a warrior in the Fight against addiction. I hope more join us in the Fight! Fight the good Fight!!!
Many Addicts also go to AA in a pinch or because they may have alcohol related issues as well. They usually will mention that they are an addict as well as an alcoholic when the groups starts introducing themselves in the beginning of the meeting. You might try striking up a conversation with some of those members and see if they know of any meetings similar to NA. Alot of hospitals and Churches also have programs to help addicts and they may have meetings as well. I hope you are feeling well and can find a group you are comfortable with soon. Congrats to you.
hey bro,im currently taking 7.5mg percocet ,4 a day for a yr now..in addition to my monthly injection.I also supplement my 4 a day with any i can buy.I feel like i live in a bubbble!Like all life is stiffled around me,but the pain is so gross at times ,i feel like throwing up!I have a follow up app on this tuesday,and thinking of asking my dr.for an upgrade in meds any suggestions?I know this is not an answer for you more like connecting with a similar bro.Anyways i hope you can break out of your bubble,thanks Butters.
Hi butters, I am in the same boat as u. I am sorry ur going thru so much pain, I can totally relate. Due to long term hydro use I now have damage to my liver/kidneys, not sure which but had battery of lab tests done recently. I cant seem to get enough relief from pain that no matter how much i take, it never seems like its enough. If u switch one med for another all ur doing is changing addictions. I wish u luck and let me know if anything helps, would love to know there's help out there.
