Addiction & Recovery board

Wow, this is SO what I needed to hear right now. I have been on this site before, but not posted recently. I got off ultram after over a year addiction back in October I think. I'd have to look it up to be sure, but it's been awhile. Since then I've struggled to quit drinking and intermixed in this time, dabbled in vicodin and percosets when I could get them prescribed. Luckily for me...I have no other access to those like I did the ultram, so I never had them for a very long time period...I went thru them too fast, sigh. Anyway...as I write on day 10 of being free from alcohol and about 20 or so since my last actual pill, I find myself craving that release...that same feeling of wanting to escape. From what? Life? You are so right, Reach, life will be mundane sometimes but I've also had some good belly laughs lately and those were hard to come by when I was using (something) daily.
So, thank you for this...gives me more hope and reason to stay the course.
