Hang in there, folks will be back on line after the weekend.  I do not do H, but my neighbor tells me it is the same as oxys.  I  will not do the H, because I think for me that would be the last straw.
H and oxys may be the same, but to my mind there is a diference between street meds and dr prescribed meds.  When it comes to addiction, the devil has us by the neck.
We have to stay on  step ahead of the noose.
Good Luck to you.  Remember, PRAY PRAY PRAY!!!

Hey

I am a former heroin addict (1 year clean). I am back studying and life is great.  First of all, you want to get off it, thats the 1st step covered.  Believe me doctors are more understanding than we think.  Whats better? Feeling a bit embarassed for the 1st visit and giving you & your baby life? Or trying it alone, which can often fail.. You deserve the support and should grab it, for you & your babys sake.  The first month is the hardest but set yourself a goal (like get a part time job), sever ties with all other users as you cant move on otherwise, be realistic and accept it wont happen overnight but believe me it will happen if you honestly want it too.  If you have family, tell them and ask for support, but only if you truly want to change.  Try getting involved in activities and get you and your daughter a routine, such as a walk in the morning, swimming after lunch etc..  This may sound mad to you just now but it worked for me.  I was a heavy heroin and crack user and then onto methadone.  It really takes a bit of willpower and the want for a better future for you and your kid.  I too took it to feel normal, thats what i 'thought i needed' to get through my day.  Methadone worked for me to stabilize my chaotic life and as my confidence grew, my methadone prescription shrunk.. I will be 100% drug free in 1month and I had a high dose of methadone.  Believe me only you can make that change, and imagine yourself in a year waking up feeling normal, being happy and loving life, being a good parent, going shopping and treating yourself with the money you save.  Hope that helps even a bit feel free to reply & ask any questions.. Good Luck x

Hey

Was reading back my comment and thought it sounded like i mean itl take a year to feel normal, thats so not right if it comes across that way.. Give it a month and if you are drug free your back to reality.. Its never going to be an easy thing but its now or never, do it while your babys still young rather than them getting slack at school etc..  Hope i dont sound mean but i cant stress enough how worthwhile life will become for you if you just take those 1st few steps youl be opening a door for you both forever.. Once your drug free, if you think about using again, get out the house and do something like visit friends, get a sponsor....xx

agree...sometimes it is just baby steps..as long as those steps r leading forward..then baby steps r ok!  (:   and as mentioned//u have admitted u have a problem//it can take people eons to admit this..u r on ur way...may have to go thru a few more hoops before u r done//but r dern close...

k guys...what is "cluckin"  now i am curious...k like chickens cluck?????or is it ducks???

anyway..finding aftercare in ur area..a group to home with till ur brain heals//almost daily the first 90 days..i found an AA group but had been to atleast 10 other meetings til i found my home...if u do not like the one u r at//move to the next//try em all.... and this ladies group of AA/many also narcotic addicted is my home....here in the deep south the "true" NA meetings are a bit over my lingo..I was a.minority by far which is ok just most had been in prison and looked like they would rather have sex with u than be ur sponsor///nah larned an awful lot going to those meetings..found out what i do not want to be..holy cow!  awful stories

my bottom was not near as low as many's are..and i am thankful...but we have to remember we r but one step from relaspse for the remainder of our lives..not meaning to be doomy..but the right time//the right place/the right situation and we will go back ona roller coaster ride..we say.."WHY NOT"  roller coasters rides are so fun...narcotic rr rides are nt fun and whn u hit the bottom of the hill///the thrill is gon! c

anyway there is help here..stick around

I can so understand where you are coming from.  You can get subutex or suboxone from a GP's prescription, depending where you are.  I used subutex to get off heroin and did a detox myself.  It was really easy physically and I just had to fight the mental battle to not use, I lasted 5 months before I started using morphine, so it can be done.

I am pregnant and am worried about using again when the baby is born.  I'm lucky to be clean now.  I've been using prescribed methadone to stay clean for the last 5 months and it's really working well.

Good luck.
