My healthy day!

This thread is for posting my daily progress, successes, thoughts, pain and joys of the struggle to remain clean and sober.

Today is actually day 6 of this journey and I looked in the mirror this morning and saw the difference. My skin looks good, my eyes bright and my smile genuine.

It's gonna be a good day, I pray for you too.

Blessings until a clean Wednesday!

Seek

Re: My healthy day!

Hey Seek.... You WILL notice a bigggg change in your skin. When using a lot, your skin will become grey or yellow'ish. I noticed it HUGELY in pics of myself over the years.... When using heavily, my skin was ick - then when not using it looked normal...healthy....almost glowed a tad. (normal)...lol

Here's to you - keep up the great work!!

Peace,
tat*

Re: My healthy day!

Thank you,

I am feeling very edgy today...like I don't give a crap.

I am not using though...it too shall pass, I'm sure.

I guess this is where the 'mama always said there would be days like this?'

Enough about me...how y'all doing?

Re: My healthy day!

THE edgy feeling is to be expected, i had and have it, sugar and caffiene will
worsen it. HANG TUFF....IT WILL PASS

Re: My healthy day!

Thanks, I do feel a little better. I think the weather is a contributing factor; it is rainy, cold. Just blah.

Maybe I need some sun. All the money I'm saving on weed I could probably get a cheap ticket to Florida!

Re: My healthy day!

I hear ya....... I'm going on my 10th day clean...... I've always gone cold turkey off the hydros...( many times ) But this time I was freaky sick.. Like I couldn't lay in bed for long... panic attacks... my body couldn't stay still and I still can hardly sleep! What's so weird is everytime I've gone off those hell pills about the the 7th day I felt sooooo good. And it only last a few days then it's gone..... what's that all about? I do not want to start taking them again..... I think... no I know this time as sick as I was I don't ever want to feel that way again..... But today was a blah day..... I'm not craving them thank goodness..... hugs and good luck sweetie!

Re: My healthy day!

Great Job Seek.

I'm Working on day nine on cloud nine!

Here in Michigan last weekend had a -20 wind chill. Air temp was -5. Too cold to even go out. Just nasty.

Keep up the good work.
Peace,
Baja

Re: My healthy day!

Great job to all!!!

I'm working on 34 days clean and it's still a struggle. I have my good and bad days but I can no longer hide behind the pills. It's been hard to face everything up front and dealing with everyday life.... but I'm learning how to each day. I know this will be a life long stuggle for me I may be clean but I'm still very vulnerable. Day by day one step at a time that how I keep going !!

I can't wait till you can go outside and not have to put six layers of clothes on I've had enough cold and snow I am ready for the beach!!!

Re: My healthy day!

Hey guys...

So much for the posting daily! My laptop at home works when it decides too; and I took Friday off and have Monday off too!!

Soooo..... with my money saved from not buying and my 6 pound loss from 'normal' eating and sleep I am shopping!! My sister is coming too...this will be a test. She LOVES to drink. If you remember; I am a closet recover story....

I am using Lent as my cover (which is true) so she won't think a big deal; but if she does, then that is not my problem. Our relationship does not have to include my drinking too.

Ok..how's that for a speech if I need it!!

Hope y'all are doing good...I feel wonderful.

LvSeek

PS...I did have to have a cup of coffee one day last week, I think Friday. My stomach was really upset and that HELPED. But I'm trying again this week.
Ok....tmi. Sorry.

:O)

Re: My healthy day!

GREAT JOB SEEK

I too am feeling excellent. It has made such a big difference and sooo fast.

I think I am gaining a little weight because I am eating better. I was only eating once daily and sometimes not even once. Now I'm doing three meals a day. I'm going to hit the gym today to combat this. I am already skinny so I have a bunch of room to grow and not be over weight. I just don't want to loose the 30 inch waist and have to buy new clothes.

Keep up the good work.
Peace
Baja
