Roll Call Time again!!!

Seems like I just posted this but another month has gone by!! So let's hear it for that clean time and I mean EVERYONE this time!! Let's try to break last month's responses!! For those just starting out it's tough to be sure but you CAN do this. You made the 1st step by admitting you are an addict and then finding this site-stay here,post,make friends,and fight those cravings. For those already on the journey,stay strong and keep your guard up!! Triggers are out there every day. It is us that must make the daily choice to use or not. We must not allow our addiction to define where we want to go in this journey. We all must start somewhere-why not now? Start hour by hour,then day by day. For those who have slipped-get back up and start over. Nobody is here to judge-only to help. SO...let's hear it for that clean time!! Hours,days,years-anyone can post!!! (btw I'm at 903 days). Stay strong everyone!!!

68 Days!! Getting better and better and better. You think you have it all figured out and boom you get some more realization. Bad days come... Good days have been outweighing the bad this past month. Cant wait to see what this next month has in  store. Everyone out there in their infant stage, press on. When it gets hard, PRESS ON! It will get better. Dont overthink things. What is happening to you is normal. I questioned every sinle withdrawal effect, Physical and Mental, the first 2 months. It is normal and we will prevail. Life is beautiful on the sober side. Not perfect, but beautiful!!! God Bless

Cold turkey from fentanyl patch 50mcg for over two months now and off the morphine also for over two months. I had to, out of fear what these medications were doing to me. I was down to 108 pounds, had digestive problems and my pancreas was reacting to the pain medications and causing problems. This is one powerful drug to beat (8 times stronger than morphine) but it was devastating my body, brain and taking control and once I recognized the fear of what this drug was doing, I had to quit. Since quitting the fentanyl, I have gained 14 pounds, clearer thinking, have an appetite, better energy and better focus. Doctors (many I have been to) want to put me on the spinal cord stimulator for degenerative joint/disk disease but are willing to try other methods like acupuncture and more shots or hopefully a nerve block. Still getting second and third opinions but the spinal cord stimulator is going to be a last resort. Exercise helps. I am walking again for the first time in over 5 years. It took a lot to get this far but my doctor who knows my pain history was only trying to accommodate my pain issues. Unfortunately, the fentanyl patch which I had been on for almost 6 months had side effects I NEVER want to go through again. Proud of what I have accomplished and others that stay focused on how much control these pain medication take over you life. It takes a strong focus to recognize how much control these medications take but when you realize they are not doing the job, get off them and take back your life. It can be done and has been done and there are many people here that are proud of what they have accomplished as well as they should be.
