Its That Time! February 2015 Roll Call!!

Hey everybody...its that time again. ROLL CALL! Ive seen over the months less and less people participate in the monthly roll call. Last month I thing we had like 39 comments or something and a few of those were from me. It wasn't too long ago that we had like 80+ people participating in the roll call. I guess I will look at it from the "glass is half full" angle and be happy that we have some still participating in it. So....if we only get 30 again then so be it....30 it is. If we get more then hey...what a blessing.

So this is the place where you introduce yourself. You can post your clean time or if your still using....just introduce yourself and let us know who you are. I know a lot of people spend time reading before they get the courage to post and reach out. Use this thread as a platform to break the ice. The time is now! So whether you have been clean for 50 years or are suffering in the stronghold of your addiction...please post and tell us about it.

To stay clean we must fellowship and lift each other up....we need to know each other in order to do that.

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.

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.

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.
