Re: Help, the cravings and anxiety are too bad

Hi Linds--

You don't know me...i'm very new here, but I was where you are now...it's really hard when an intense craving hits! I learned that they do go away if you wait long enough though...you've been through the worst of it! It's been 13 days so, maybe a bit of boredom is setting in? I know that it did for me! Find something else to do...take a walk, listen to some music, read a book, call a friend, or get down on your knees and pray...but please resist the urge to use!!

I'm 64 days clean from percs...so when I say I know how you feel...it's really true!!

I've had bad cravings...looking through drawers and cabinets for pills...but was sooooo happy later that day, or the next morning when I didn't cave and use!!

Good luck, sweetie!! I'm pulling for you...and praying for you too!!

peace, love and understanding

Dream...
