Sometimes you have to tke it second by second and you are so right to reach out for support. In your toolbox of recovery, there are many tools, the subs are one, the support is one, goals are another and keeping busy to distract you would be another. Most of us have been there and we do support you. If you can find an AA meeting, that will also give you some support and they do accept addicts as well as alcoholics. In my experience, some AA members do NOT like to hear of people taking medications like subs,or benzos, so you might want to keep thqt info to yourself. How are you feeling, do you feel like you are out of withdrawal yet. I will check back later, but wanted to at least let you know I was thinking about you nd I support you.patti
Hi Tapout. You are not alone, i know getting clean and sober ia not an eazy thing. First i want to ask you are you by you self? If you are i suggest you let someone know and have them stay with you for support. Second make some coolaid any flavoy this helps with your widthdrawls also you can get over the counter sleepy tee cammomeil and you can also take over the counter melatonin 3mg take two capsules at night to help you relax and sleep dont worry all natural. Please keep me inf. On how your doing
You wrote that yesterday..& 12 hours ago. So by now I hope you are on day 7 of fighting to stay clean. Stay strong..you will feel bettr soon. Just try to drink lots of fluids, soups, take aleve..that works well. any asprin u can take up to 1,000 mg per day w/out damaging anything. STAY HYDRATED..I am praying for you
