47 days Clean!

Damn, can ya'll believe that?  I have 47 days!  I am so thankful to be clan today, and I am so thankful because yesterday I laughed so hard I almost cried at work.  It made me feel so much better, and the 'high' that I felt from that laugh, pretty much lasted all day.  I even passed this bar at this red light by my house , It's an icehouse, in TX, some of the bars are like garages, open and you can see inside. While, I wait for the light to turn green there's not much else to look at, so  I always look inside and usually I crave, but yesterday I didn't.  I saw the people inside sitting around a table, and I just imagined them sitting in there trying to change the way they feel, and I realized that I didn't want to change the way I felt.  I was perfectly fine the way I was.

Congrats on 47 days!!! I am 38 days today. I can't believe I made it this far. Tell me something can you tell a difference in the way you feel today and what you felt like say 9 days ago.

I'm in NA also, and that is making a HUGE difference for me.   I' have been clean from vicodin since 10.14.07 so it's kinda different.  The withdrawls have been gone for me since around Thanksgiving.  The last withdrawls that hung around were restless limbs and sleeplessness.  The severe depression went away before that.  I credit NA, and the working the steps, to the way I feel today, oh yeah and most importantly turning my life over to God.  I used to be skeptical, but not anymore, and even if there is no God, the concept works for me, and countless others.  Today I'm not so confused, scared, and I have hope for a better future.  You can give your wife & son a beautiful life, or a ****** one... I believe drugs play a major role in this.  Are you in NA?

Yes I'm in NA and it does really help. I'm gald your feeling so good. I still have a few bad days here and there but I guess everyone does. Its really hard getting use to doing things when your not taking the pills anymore. I guess I will get that back eventually. I am feeling pretty good though most of the time.

Good for you!!!  How awesome is that?  Im 6 years clean and STILL get those realizations.  Being grateful makes a huge difference in recovery! I am very grateful I am clean around this time of year.  Not to say I still don't miss my drug or choice but I love waking up looking forward and not backward to the night before, days before and feeling such misery. So glad you are doing well
