Wink 5 Weeks!!!

It's been 5 weeks now since I've taken my last pill. I feel so much better. I think I'm through the worst of it. I've got my mind set to positive and there is no way I'm going back down that path. I've come to far to fall back down. Since I've stopped I've been experiencing anxiety but I will over come this too. Things are getting better as each day pass's. I can't even beging to explain the pride I feel towards myself for coming this far. Just thought I'd try and give others hope. The first three weeks suck, but it will and does get better, Wish all of you the best. Stay stronge!!!

Re: 5 Weeks!!!

Congratulations! I am on my 5th week clean as well. It really gets better every day. It seemed that there were several people on the board that were quitting at the same time we were. I would love to hear from them. Keep staying strong. I think we have it beat! Star

Re: 5 Weeks!!!

I too want to congratulate you guys! Well done, but now the hard part kicks in, staying clean and fighting off those cravings, and yes they will come. Its a long road but have faith and be STRONG and you will do fine. Never give in thinking oh I could probably just take one, cause one is to many and 100 not enough. Thats were I always messed up, thinking I could take just one, and it started the process all over again. Hang in there, your doing great!!!

congrats on 5 weeks i read your other post on the panic disorder board when i came off methadone the anxiety definitly got me it lingered and had several panic attacks basically what happens i'm not a dr but we have to learn to deal with anxiety all over again and our brain is not back to normal yet try taking a vitamin b complex and drinking chamomile tea that's what i did it really does help alot i don't think your other situation you described is helping either unfortunatly my anxiety got the best of me and had to go on klonopin but i'm sure yours will subside i had a really severe w/d so i think thats what my problem is but things will get better for you soon i think you mentioned you're moving that's very stressful and forgive me if i'm wrong i think you said you don't like the in law situation so maybe once you get out of that things will go a little smoother for you again that's awesome you're doing great if this panic doesnt go away i suggest telling your dr i know what your going through hugs kelleigh
