    Good for you Baja! Never give up---even when it comes to your wife. You have a fighting spirit so you will victor. You know, you have been sober for 38 days, 8 years with out booze, you are showing some real stability here, why is she being so hard on you? Baja--I really beleive the ball is in her court now, she needs to work on herself to see what her problems are, you have! Nobody is perfect and I am sure she isn't also, sorry if that sounds harsh,but everyone has faults. I think everyone can benefit from the 12 steps, even the earth people (non addicts) ha--heard that in a meeting lol! Maybe she, like my H, could really benefit from alanon meetings, but I guess they think they don't need to cause they aren't the one with the addiction---I don't know. I can just relate to where you are at, and it is very frustrating to say the least ( I am not dogging your wife please understand that).

    Have a great time skiing--and becareful! No injuries = no meds!


    Keep up the great work....

    Angie:
    Honey you hit the nail on the head. My h doesn't want to go to alanon meeting either cuz he's to busy. So I just work on myself and let him do what he needs to do. But, Thank God for program because it helps me deal with him. My sponsor told me to treat him like a new comer he knows nothing about this program and to try and teach it to him like it is being taught to me. Like a new comer don't shove it down his thoart. So that's what I do when I come home from a meeting all happy and full of spirit and I try and share he rolls his eyes so I stop talking and go about my happy self.

    Great chatting with you guys.

    May Peace be in your Heart and Soul.

    Love,
    Lori

    Hey Lori!
    You are sounding great! After a couple bad days, I am feeling much better, thank the good lord, I can't continue this maddness anylonger. If I feel the cravings I am going to do what ever it takes, like picking up that 2,000lb phone, go to a meeting,come here,eat, just anything to not to pick up the drink. I hope you and everyone craving will do the same.
    Yes the H's love it when we do the happy dance after a meeting-- not! I swear he just hear blah blah blah--when I speak of them, so I stopped telling him. Have a great weekend Lori!

    Re: Baja's Journey "THE ROAD OUT" Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alcohol Addiction

    Hello all, Just checking in.

    I think I goofed up in a few posts today saying I was on day 44 or 45? Opps. Sorry...

    I am on day 43 today.

    I guess it is good to forget how long I've been clean. I could be forgetting to eat food or where I put my cell phone because I was stoned but NOPE not me anymore

    I'll take the first memory lapse.

    All is well, college starts the end of the month and I also plan on quiting the cigs in 5 to 6 days. I'm still getting my plan together

    Thanks All,

    As Always,
    Peace.
    Baja

    You are doing so well. Have you had any cravings. They started for me right wround that time. Little voices in my head convincing me that its "ok" to get a pill or look for one.

    I am proud of you and the support you give others on here.

    Re: Baja's Journey "THE ROAD OUT" Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alcohol Addiction

    Baja -- first off, I thought you were like, 18, since you kept mentioning college - LOL! It sounds like you've been out of school for maybe a few years....but I'm still way older than you! :-)

    About the cigarettes -- you really sound motivated to quit. How much do you smoke? I quit 20 years ago, CT, pack-and-a-half habit. I knew I was motivated when I actually moved my quit date UP. As I mentioned in another post, I am the Queen of Side Effects so I went through quite the nicotine withdrawal. Really convinced me never to pick up that habit again. I can smell smoke on people now and it really bothers me. But then again, EVERYTHING bothers me since I've been on oxy. Did you notice that or was it just me? I've lost some friends due to perceived slights, and don't really keep in touch with a lot of people like I used to. Even my relationship with my mother has suffered because I'm so testy. It's a miserable life.

    But back to YOU -- I wish you great luck with quitting the smokes and getting back to a healthy life!

    Re: Baja's Journey "THE ROAD OUT" Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alcohol Addiction

    Hey D and Notperky,

    No cavings for me D. I really don't miss the junk? I am happy for that.

    Hey Perk, I quit the cigs many times before. One time for 10 years and everytime I get stressed out I would start with just one here and there and you know what us addicts do. Well I am smoking just under a pack a day. I plan on 5 days to CT the cigs because I will be out of my supply. Not that it isn't easy to get more, but I don't like the way it makes me feel and I know it is not good for me.

    I will give it another round and hold on this time. My medical doctor didn't want me to quit too soon and fall down with everything again. He says baby steps. I feel up to the task and I am ready to quit for good this time.

    I made it to day 44 today and feel great. I will be 44 yrs old in a couple months so yesterday was my age day clean if there is such a thing?
    Sleep is fine and no signs of PAWS either.

    Everyone have a great day.

    thanks for all the support!

    As Always,
    Peace.
    Baja

    Thanks Yoss.

    I have quoted you many times "Just Keep on Keepin on"

    I appreciate the props. I need those too.

    We are getting some snow right now here but only 1 to 3 inches they say?

    We will most likely only get a dusting

    Have a Happy Easter.

    As Always,
    Peace.

    Re: Baja's Journey "THE ROAD OUT" Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alcohol Addiction

    Hey All my Friends!!

    On day 46 today

    I have another announcement!!!

    Monday is going to be zero day for the Cigs for me.
    I got some of those meds from the Doctor that is supose to help with quitting.
    I can already tell the difference cause I don't seem to get the same feeling (Buzz) from the nicotine as I did in the days prior to starting the meds. I guess it blocks the nicotine from the brain so withdrawals are less whenI actually go to zero. Like a SUB for Cigs?

    I also noticed that I have been waken up by caughing in the middle of the night and my lungs seem to hurt. Another big reason to quit my last bad habbit. I have to read the side effects booklet but you know how us guys are. We only read instructions if we run into a question or having trouble putting something together

    I'll keep you all posted. I'll be in and out of the board all weekend.

    As Always.
    Peace.
    Baja

    Re: Baja's Journey "THE ROAD OUT" Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alcohol Addiction

    hey baja - go for it. while you're in the quitting mood then why not give up the cigs?!
    i did the same at new year (just over a month clean of opiates at the time) - i aint looked back since. 1st week i was a bad person to be around - after that it got better by the day. now i cant stand the smell of it - especially on other people!

    its achievable hombre - so GO FOR IT!!

    good luck, keep us posted

    yoss

    keep on keepin on

    Re: Baja's Journey "THE ROAD OUT" Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alcohol Addiction

    You bet Yoss,

    I feel up to the task.
    I'm confident the W'D's from the Cigs will pale in comparison to the oxy

    Today I am on 47 days clean!! Man I can't believe it. I need to go back and count the actual days to be sure. Time flys by when your clean and having fun!!

    I had an appointment with the shrink yesterday and he said I'm doing real good. That always makes me feel good when I hear that

    He thinks I am still a little too hyper but not too much. He wants me to talk to me Med doc (They work together) to see if I should up one of my meds to a morning and evening dose? I see the med doc on thursday. The meds they have me on are not addicitve, I made sure of that and if I was to stop the meds I would not expierence any W/D's. I would just fall back to my old hyper self again which I don't want

    Today is my last day for the Cigs and I only have just less than a pack left. I'll be posting my sucess on that journey.

    Thanks for all your support, Everyone.

    As Always,
    Peace,
    Baja
