2 months clean and feeling great

i have made it this far and there is no turning back now life is so much better clean not worryin about how im gonna get pills all the time and just getting up stretching out and getting on with my normal life again and thank goodness my nerves have finally calmed back down so i can get back to tattooing again cause well thats obvious cant do that with shaky hands or i guess i should say shouldnt do that with shaky hands because believe it or not their are ppl out there that will tattoo someone in their bedroom and have no buisness doing tattoos but will scar someone for life anyway
well havent posted my clean time in a lil while so figured i would let everyone that helped me know how i am doin

Congratulations on 2 months.  I can't get enough of hearing about other's success.  Do you have any advice on helping to increase energy levels?  I am on day 25 and I feel good, but still struggling with the lack of energy and a huge lack of motivation.  I was so used to using pills to give me that extra energy.....it's almost like learning to live again.  I am going to NA meetings and a new Addiction Therapist and hopefully group starting tomorrow.  I hope this helps.  
You sound great!  Keep it up.

Good job!  Congrats!  I'm very proud of you!

Kristen, have you tried B vitamins?  Amino acids?  I am doing that.  It can't hurt, right?

I did have a stress B vitamin, but ran out a week ago, and just haven't gotten it again.  I will get some today.  I have read a little about the amino acids on here.  I am going to get these and try them too.  Thanks for the advice.....it just seems like some days I am litterally dragging myself minute by minute to get through.  I know it is still early and I will have to let some of this just work itself out, but it gets frustrating when I am used to "flying" through my days and work.
Thanks for your help Trama!

Your through the hell, now it's just a matter of not letting yourself compromise on any thought or temptation that comes up. Your pretty much smooth sailing from here..

Enjoy the ride, and God Bless,
