Good News about your neck! I am glad it is something easy to deal with. 1 Month, that has got to feel great. I remember one time a few years back (that;s really sad to write) I went one month clean. My stupid ass decided to treat myself to some tabs. Wow, what a gift to give myself. Congratulations, you dependent again!.... LOL anyways, I think I can laugh about it now because I will use that experience the next time so that maybe I won't be so kind to myself for making it a month.

It's awesome to see the positive attitude and that you almost have to PAWS beat. PAWS is what did me in. I remember thinking, before I knew how long it could last, that after three weeks clean "If this is what sober is, I want no part of it". Little did I know that it was my addict brain trying to convince me to get back into drugs. It's always easy to tell someone else the right thing to do and the right thing to say, but it's another thing when it's YOUR though process that's messed up. Things that makes sense to you don't add up to anyone else. That's just another part of the disease.

You, IWillDoThis, And Romeo along with so many other on these forums are such great stories to look back to as inspiration. You guys are so positive that it's catching and that's a good thing.

Much Love,

John (Reprieve)

As usual a great post that made me chuckle in the end.

Glad to hear your neck issue is cool. Speaking of cool, this is getting ridiculous. It looks like at least another 14 days of below freezing. This totally sucks.
Staying busy is probably the best thing while in recovery. That's my problem, I'm stuck in this house most of the day because it's too cold to do anything outside.
Been to the gym a few times this week, and I do push myself. Soon as I can get some sleep back I will be fine. Just another bump in the road.

Stay healthy brother

Gary

Well, I Just want to thank everyone who've I've received support, and great advice from. I'm pleasantly surprised in my progress, and find myself engulfed in life and Loving it. The mistakes I've made in the past seem to be in the past, without much reflection. I can say that I survived this addiction. I'll always have an addictive personality, but I wont take a knee to it anymore. To everyone who's struggling right now, my heart goes out to you. I know how helpless addiction can make a person.

In 2010 , I went into a sub program, and came out a different person. I was still numb, but able to build a foundation to stand on. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for that Expensive program. I'm signing off this site, with the hope that people will read through the posts that me and others have written. You would be surprised how much Hope a positive Online diary could give someone in the same disposition. This amazing site gave me strength to conquer my fear of going off sub, with the fear of getting back on opiates. Sometimes, people do make it out to the other end.

peace

Does that mean that you won't be back to post? It's not unusual for folks to stay on the forum for as long as they need the support and then we never hear from them again, but I do like it when they continue to update us about their lives. If this is your last post, I wish you the best as you continue on in your life and recovery! Don't be a stranger though!

Amy

@H0pe

You just got here! :D
You have been a good friend and a great inspiration. I h0pe (pun intended) that you find it in you time to stop by and keep us updated if only once a month.

I can understand you getting busy and getting deep back into life, but from time to time we would like to know how things are going, if only to show others that it can be done!..

Much love Bro,

John

I agree with Amy and Reprieve.
It would be nice to here from you once in a while but can also understand where you are coming from. You have been a huge inspiration for me since the day I jumped.

Thank you brother,
Gary
