I slipped

I had 4 months to the day clean, and the next day I took 2 1/2 Vicodin, and then the next day I took one, and then the following day I took 2 percocet. I have obviously been off the Naltrexone, So I had to start over on my clean date, I havent used in 2 days now. I figured I needed to share not only my good, but also my bad. I will start taking the naltrexone again in a few days when the opiates are out of my system. Wish me luck in this battle I dont want to wind up losing war

Re: I slipped

L-
Its alright-you know that this is part of the recovery process-as long as its a slip-and not a plummet-4 months is amazing-hard work..its a daily struggle-so don't overlook all the hard work you just put into your sobriety-understand it-and move on..At least you didn't go into binge mode-and you see it for what it is-"just a slip"-if you find yourself really wanting to use-try to get to a meeting-i don't do them regularly-but if i feel really low-or i really feel i want to use-it can be very helpful-
Do you have any additional support like counseling/etc?
I really need to have my weekly therapy sessions to stay on track-but i also have serious depression issues that are not just drug-related..but the drugs really did a number on my brain chemistry.
Stay strong-and DONT BEAT YOURSELF UP!!
Its a new day!
Hang in there-
Heather

Re: I slipped

Lynn, what caused you to take the drugs? Legit pain? Dump whatever you have lying around, and resume your count on month 5, so you don't become depressed over it. It is great you recognize it as a slip up, but its over, so move on. OK?

Tell me more about your past addiction. Did you go through w/d's?
Great work on 4 months clean. Keep it up. And a small slip like that is no big deal, just be carful and you are in my prayers.

Re: I slipped

you did some clean time there boss...should be extremely proud of that...let your slip go by as a small token of your addiction and turn around,dont look back and be clean again...for the last 4 years,ive always struggled at this one point in my recovery that seems to be a hump i just gotta get over if i want to be sober.....look at it that way and hit a/a or n/a mtgs...i realized once again for the umpteenth time we have a life long disease that must be treated daily.....and watched....one percocette and before you know it you are rigtht back and doin more than you were before....chef
