This is just a discussion question. I had my last narcotic pill on a detox taper program April 14th this month so at this time I am 16 days sober. If anyone read my last post you would know I am still really struggling the the craving portion of this experience. Right now I have weekly sessions with a drug abuse therapist. If my mind is busy or I am with people the cravings are small or not there but when I am with by myself and in my head that is when I struggle badly. I was fortunate to have a really weak withdrawal but I have had terrible thoughts saying that why not start up again and just wd when I need to if they won't be so bad. That sort of mental justification is what has always made me slip and even lead the the abuse in the first place. You guys know, "just one more pill won't hurt".
CONGRATULATIONS on being drug free for 16 days. I highly recommend Narcotics Anonymous meetings. You will get the support you need and can develop some positive relationships. You can google "narcotic anonymous" and find meetings near your home or work. Once you have a chance to check out the "winners" in the meetings you can get a sponsor, someone to be accountable to and can call if the cravings overwhelm you.
Just remember, one more pill is never enough and if you go back to them, you will pick up where you left off including all the misery you have left behind.
Best wishes, and keep posting,
