ahh...where to begin

Well, I am struggling with addiction and the demons and "convincing voice" are trying to get the best of me right now. It's been nearly a week and I feel horrific.

Does anyone know of online AA/NA mtgs. that are good? I just need a place to vent...ASAP.

Thanks!

You can vent here... that's what this board is for.. addiction and recovery.. There's a lot of good people here who will offer advice and support.. Give us a try.. as for online meetings, I don't know if they do that or not. Best thing to do is G***** it.

Re: ahh...where to begin

I have struggled for years with pills, so welcome. Let us know what your DOC is and we can be more specific. If you are withdrawing right now then hang in and read all of the wonderful post on here about personal detox plans that HAVE worked. I am one of them. i am currently 2 months clean off hydro. I really feel good. This is close to the longest I have been in almost 5 years

we can only help if you write --let us know your story --it help to get it out

Re: ahh...where to begin

Well, I've been an alcoholic since 15...Roughly 15 years now. I had a 2 year bout with Heroin- been clean from that since 10/26/96. My prob. now is pills. Oxy - but i've been trying to ween down right now to just small doses of pain meds. I can't stand the ITCH. I'm older now and the WD is MUCH worse than anything I remember. I am a fully functioning addict with a career and have even had therapists NOT BELIEVE that I had such problems because it seems impossible with my work load, social life, etc. I am also sick so I am in physical pain...it's such a rough road and an ever shifting line which I am not always on the right side of in life.

There's my story...I'd love any support or advise. Lastly, I am in huge debt and my relationship is extremely strained...an obvious side effect of my disasterous lifestyle.
