Cool 18 days hydro free!

Tomorrow at noon I will be 18 days clean of hydro. I have been reading the posts of all the ones who started around the same time as me. You have been a real encouragement to me and many like me. I am starting to get past the "habit" part, the physical reaching for pills. I may only think of them a few times a day. I am having some cravings but nothing that I can't handle. And I do have a lack of energy and a hollow feeling inside that I know will pass with time. The think that keeps me going is the realization that my chains are gone! I'm free. I don't have to plan my life around pills, pills, pills.

Let me know what your experiences have been. And thank you all for your encouragement.

Re: 18 days hydro free!

Star - congrats on your sobriety. That is wonderful!!!! So how do you really feel, physically? Just still tired a little but otherwise, o.k.? How are your cravings? I have to ask - are you attending meetings or any type of addiction support group? You really need to attend NA/AA. For me, the easy part was withdrawing physically but I continued to relapse because of the mental cravings. And from what I've seen actually work for people (and I mean TONS of people) are the NA/AA meetings and obtaining a sponsor. Good luck to you and try really hard to locate these meetings. Hopefully, you are already wise to this and have done so. Good luck and don't give in to ANY cravings.

Re: 18 days hydro free!

Awesome job Star! Just keep thinking of how much better your life will be with each passing day. We all will have our up's and downs, but that's just part of life and our up's will far out weigh our down's. Again great job!!
