    Re: when does it end

    Butting in here - Patience - by pure accidence I found my way into the AA rooms - never looked back and am still there today - stay away from users. Maybe you might find more sobriety in AA rooms - I just dont know. But dont give up - you WILL find something that will suit. I think Chef goes to AA. Ask Rosie too.
    But you're doing everything right - plug on - you will get there in the end!

    Re: when does it end

    Thanks............shucks ya'll warm the cockalls( you know what I'm tryin' for here) of my heart. Seriously its nice to feel so welcome stumbling into the wrong forum. Well can't really say wrong, the pain management board was what drew me here but anyone who has been there has to wonder about things sometimes. And as I said did have the valium thing for awhile.............A l- o- n -g while still think about them fondly just know I can't have a supply of them around. NOW THE TRUTH COMES OUT! But they did help me thru a very tuff time and they do have their redeeming qualities. I'll hush we've about beat this horse to death......have a wonderful evening.

    Very few in my estimation. Is a tough poison to redeem... Could not let the horse die just there. Admittedly, I am going to be on the bitter side with what these drugs have put me through and cost me over the last 7 months. But yes, some take them and get away with it.

    Blow me! This horse simply wont die!!!
    Like Howard - I hate them to hell - cost be the best part of a year of my life. I was not lucky and escape - I was typical and the withdrawal was vile. And it was caused thro no fault of my own - under doc's orders!
    Nope - this filly is cantering merrily down the streets of every country in the world now - but there is at last a posse starting up in UK to track the beast down!

    i don't know how to take you'r response but unforunatly in this one it's the way it was i knew alot of the people there and let me tell you 30,60,or 90 days clean just wasn't so. i went with a friend when i first got off methadone and her and a bunch of people offered i wasn't saying the councelor did but let me tell you in this society it happens these people go there do all the drugs they want and a drug test is nothing to them if they are required to take one .when i looked up info on methadone you know what popped up how to beat a drug test i know you probably think this did'nt happen but come to pittsfield mass and find out it was a typical n/a meeting

    I`m not going to invest alot of energy in debating this one. Will about benzos, to my last breathe as the evidence on that topic is scientific and vast, and the stakes are very high. Do not go to NA if you do not wish to. Your choice as is everything else discussed on this thread. I have been to some small NA meetings with a friend, no drug using, all quite serious about staying clean. There are also members on the net that seem as serious about recovery as people on here. But surely there are people in NA and AA that are court ordered and not serious. That woud not concern me however. I would not be there for them but for my recovery, and am sure I could find others like myself.

    why is it everytime i share information it gets me some sort of negative or sinical response i just was looking to you for answers because you have opened my eyes to many things you shared that the closest n/a meeting was 30 miles away and did'nt know how they'd feel about you doing a taper i mearly shared with you why i did'nt try another n/a meeting and you blew it away like it was some fairy tale you knew so much about benzos and i looked to you for information and felt you were a friend i guess i should just stay out of this post from now on i did'nt share this with you as a debate i am not a debator i shared as a friend

    Did not mean it as cynical. I am actually optimistic about NA. Is an old saying in those 12 step groups, "stick with the winners." If there is not a single one of those in NA in your area, and they are all shooting dope in the parking lot after lying for an hour, stay away. I just very much doubt such a scenario would be anywhere near typical of NA as a whole, as I have evidence to the contrary. I tend not to pull punches, but have no objective to pick on or hurt people. As to NA, going it is up to you.

    Mise,

    In the true British tradition, you have a way with words. I concur, and once I am healthy there will be one more tracking the beast down in America.

    No problem. I am going to go to NA but probably not until my taper off is complete. May go sooner. But will not be there for any fakers, but for me and serious people I hope to find.
