Feeling Stronger Everyday

Today is day 10. Yesterday I got over a huge hump. For the last 9 days I have had this nagging refill hovering over my head. Like I need that with all the other w/d symptoms I've been having. So yesterday I got the courage to post about the refill awaiting me and I got some amazing feedback. I was able to call the pharmacy and void it out. I actually slept 6 hours last night (huge for me lately) and I woke up without that craving. Instead I had a couple of moments where I thought "Oh, it must be pill time." and my very next thought was "No, Robin. You don't take those anymore." And that is fine with me.

I am still tired and not getting the sleep I want, but I feel like the demon is gone. I know I have a long way to go, but I want to go the clean way now. Thank God and Thank all of you that I don't want those nasty hydros anymore!

Hey crazybird a big CONGRATS on day 10 and cancelling the refill. It takes a strong will to do that. It just shows your determination to make it down the road to sobriety. Keep it up you are doing great.

I don't have much time before I have to leave for an NA meeting, but I wanted to tell you that I am so happy you made the decision to void that script.  I read your post yesterday and was hoping you would come to that conclusion.  You are through the hardest days.  Every day does get better, trust me :o) I am here if you ever want to chat. YOU GO GIRL!
