Its That Time! January 2015 Roll Call!!

Happy New Years everybody! I hope everyone stayed safe and sober!

Well, lets kick this year off with a roll call then. This is where you post your clean time. Whether you have 10 years or are just thinking about getting clean....we'd love to hear from you! Don't feel like you can't post here if your not clean....use this as an opportunity to introduce yourself! This thread is meant for people to draw hope and encouragement from each other as well as to meet.

Hope we get a lot of people to participate as the numbers have dwindled over the months.

Six days today off alprazolam. :o) Not clean though. Doc switched me to clonazepam because I was having so much trouble with the alprazolam. BUT I'm still happy because I went from 6 - 8mg a day of alprazolam, down to 2mg, and now I'm only taking 1mg a day of clonazepam, and I haven't been alprazolam free for three years now. I am happy!!! Alprazolam is the devil.

Sorry I have been MIA the last few roll calls, been busy with kids, trying to get school squared away, life, etc. lol. I am happy to report I celebrated 3 whole years clean and sober on December 5th, so today I am 3 years and 1 month! Holla! Proud of each and every day:) I started at the university today, to get my bachelors in Addiction Studies/Interdisciplinary Studies, and I am super stoked, although a little scared, I admit. I had to do two classes online, and I am not sure how that works, but I will figure it out:) I hope you all will continue to fight this fight, it is the best thing you could ever do for yourself, it is so worth it!

I have been on and off the site for a couple of months. I have been clean on and off for about 6 months - longest span was about 45 days and since than I have taken a few here and there. I had 8 teeth removed - 7 at the same time. I am going to have 6 more removed and finally get my teeth fixed from all the damage. I am going to do those ones pain med free. Its so hard to break this cycle. Its almost like I don't know how else to feel or be. I know I don't want this anymore. I have a support group  but I think I really need to find a grief counsoler - i definitely need it. I lost both my parents - my mom as of June and i buried them both this past October. I didn't realize the extent of grief - i have two small children and an active husband and life but who doesn't....it keeps me active. I want them to have what I grew up with. I had two great loving parents - we had a lot of fun growing up. I deserve that and so does my family. 5 days clean of oxycodone. Thank you for this board.

2 days for me. Fist time really quitting due to choice and not because I'm out. So is my first real detox, and I know it will be my last. I will not fail. I love this site and support. I'm going to hell right now. I keep telling myself I got this.

Nothing felt more grateful than waking up on the morning of 2K15, and knowing that I'm clean and sober. And chasing life, not highs ...
Life is good !
