I guess I will start since it is a special day for me.
Today marks 5 years clean.
The last time I had 5 years clean was before I ever used in the first place. Its a blessing to be alive and clean. Everyday is a gift from God that I am truly grateful for.
I'm almost on day 2000!!!
I am 32 days clean, loving every bit of life. I was prescribed 20mlg oxycodone and tramadol. I have %100 control of my life again and I will never go back. This site and the people here are amazing.
Still here....398 days!!!!! Picked up my one year medallion last month, chairing meetings, going to book studies, making new, clean friends, planning a wedding, working full time, (hired someone to keep my lawn cut, lol), and doing it all.............clean! I believe a miracle has happened!
And an extra congrats to you ActingBrandNew as 5 years is awesome! Damn good job....nice to see it can be done!

Hello, I'm 41 days without taking cocaine. Without even knowing it I was addicted to the drug for 12 years, and still must be as every day is hard. Currently going through hell and back with the physical agony cocaine has left me with. Reading so many positive stories from people on this site is incredibly refreshing and inspiring. Well done to everyone who has stayed clean for a hell of a lot longer than me.
I am Ruthy a Tramadol sufferer. Prescribed for chronic pain and am stuck in Hell on earth. Congratulations to all for getting off and then moving on with your lives. With God on my side I WILL be there too some day. God Bless you all!
Hello my name is Tina i am on day 12. Still struggling, but moving forward. Tbjs site has been helpful
Oh forgot to say i was a addicted to pain pills. Lortabs and then anything i could get my hands on
Great post ABN, congrats on your 5 years....wow.
I'm Jill, I have 8 months clean. On my 30 day countdown to my 9 month chip...and then...the big one year.
I chose AA because there are a TON of mtgs near me: I am a secretary of one mtg and have commitments at others. I go just about every day. I would never be clean w/o a program, no way.
Emotionally, it's still hard to deal w/ life. BUT, thank GOD I am free from the- horrid pill counting, pill worrying, can't go anywhere w/o pills, detox once a week- life. I have trouble finding stuff to be grateful for a lot but I am SO SO grateful for being norco-free. I wake up and feel physically normal every day!:)
Hi all - I'm L and I'm on day 9 this time around. I was taking up to 20 10mg of Vicodin a day for the last 5 years. This time around I feel like I have more clarity plus I've found this online community that is keeping me honest and on track. Welcome all and good luck to all! :)

ok i am new to this but hello i am an alcoholic drug addict and i go by libralair here. i am working on being clean. i havent had any drugs for about 10 days but i am still drinking alcohol.. i really want to give it up. i have done it before but for some reason this time it is really giving me a problem to just finally walk away from it. The only time i do drugs is when i am drunk and have money. money is such a trigger for me. i am not talking about every day money, like bill money or grocery money but tax money or because i go to college, refund money, any large sum of money is a trigger it is like as soon as i know it is on the way my mind starts plotting out the plan on how, where, when and how much? it makes me sick to my stomach when i am doing it and still i do it. why?? it just doesnt make sense. it isnt like im dumb or not intelligent in any way. i am a grwon *** woman with 2 grown successful daughters i raised by myself, i go to college full time and carry a gpa of 3.6 and have for 6 semesters. made the deans list 6 times in a row , not to toot my own horn but not stupid here UNTIL IT COMES TO FREAKIN COCAINE AND SUBSTANCES OF THE SAME CALIBER!!! what the hell???? why do i become a RETARDED IDIOT WHEN IT COMES TO THAT AND ALCOHOL!!!! i know what is going to happen and i do it anyway. sorry i didnt mean to rant and i am probably in the wrong place my bad.
