Into day 4 clean

Well today is the start of day 4. Slept a little better last night but still had some tremors when my body was trying to relax. Managed to shower and even do my hair..... Going forward. Still no bloody energy my body feels twice it's weight!  Other than that I think I'm doing ok! No cravings yet but if I do I got it covered! Looking forward to tomorrow!

Congrats on day 4!  It should get better from here.  I know what it's like to have no energy and feel like a 200lb man is constantly on top of you as you try to move.  

I've noticed that vitamin B12 helps with the low energy, and exercise and hot baths take away that awful heaviness that's like drowning in quicksand.  Hang in there, you're almost there.  You can do it!

Thanks guys .... I know with each passing day things will get better and I will feel better! Hubby said I have more color in my face since off the drugs, said I was always pale.... I never noticed! It's amazing the differences that ppl notice! Over the last 6 months I dropped 70 lbs that was from always puking from the percs, amazing what that crap does.... It's just not worth it! Thanks again for your continuing support!! Hugs to all!

Great job on 4 days!! It should just keep getting better. I'm on day 4 as well and really think that vitamins and moving around has helped alot. Also, I was told my a member here about Vitamin water Revive- has 100% of some b vitamins plus electrolytes & potassium which our bodies are probably starving for. I noticed a difference immediately when I drank it. I got it on day 2 I believe.

That heavy feeling is wierd huh? I took too much Dramamine for motion sickness one time, it felt like that. I could feel the blood sloshing around throwing me off balance. It went away, it gets better and better. Sometimes that's a matter of believing it, it doesn't always feel that way. You are healing every minute you don't take drugs. 4 days and marching, keep your eyes on the prize.

We are all different, but I think that you're at the turning point. If you aren't eating yet, try to eat. Don't worry about healthy food or whatever, just eat. My detox was hell, but at the end of day 4 things started changing. I was able to eat, and noticed an immediate difference. And like the post above suggested, if you've been spending a lot of time in the bathroom, a drink with electrolytes is a good idea. Get your body fueled. Try to take a short walk. You will have some bad moments, but, at least for me, after day 4 those moments became fewer and fewer. Don't push yourself, but eat, walk, and start enjoying your recovery.

Hi kyle,
oh I have been eating, LOL hubby says he has not seen me eat like that in ages... since day 1 i have been eating like a COW.. LMAO... so thats not an issue, i may not be eating great things, but i am eating, drinking water, and electrolytes juices. Bathroom is not too much of an issue, been a little rough, but nothing i need to take anything for.... walking, i have been doing a little of that, me and my Mr are going to walk to the park across the street from our house tonight with the dogs, just even for 10 minutes if that's all i can do .... my legs feel sooooo very heavy, so walking is hard , but, on my lunch break at work today i walked over to the store... felt good, i found as i was walking back i was walking a little quicker and a little better............ up and up right!! Thank you for your encouragement.....

Detoxing is impressive enough, all on it's own but doing it while working..well, my hat is off to you, is all I can say! Massive Congrats to you on your BIG 4 days. Great work! I'm glad you're getting a little sleep. That's a very encouraging sign. It's also cool that you've got such a great attitude (that's half the battle.) You're going to stick this one Jibi! Hang Tough. We're here.

Glad to hear your upbeat tone! It is hard to really deal with the withdrawals, and I'm happy for you. A PMA (positive mental attitude) is not necessary but it helps! I whined A LOT at day 4! Lol. Saturday is 7 weeks sober for me...I was so miserable during withdrawals...I hope I never forget! Keep going...you are already a success!
