Ive made it to 30, here's to 30 more. Feeling absolutely lovely. Can't wait to see how I feel down the road.

Seriously, life has become more positive. Time with my daughter has been so much better. Ive been a good husband to my wife. I'm saving money. 47 days free of opiates now too.

Remember - I jumped from 2mg and even though I only did subs for 12 days to cure a big perc/vic addiction, I did a good bit over 12 days. I did it. Ive overcome. Some temptations, some desires to get percs or subs. But I've overpowered it all with my mind(and a whole lot of walking and new life patters).

And I loved drugs.

I know you all can succeed as well. And I'm here for you. All of you. For any positive reinforcement. I went through the physical stuff. I cried. Ive played the mental game. All of it really starts to go away more and more each day. That is the honest truth.

Keep believing it can be done. It can. It's a want and then it becomes an accomplishment and a sense of self-love and purpose you really can't describe until you realize that you're there.

Make it happen!

CHARLIE

Thanks!

Yes, I would take off of work if you're ready to jump. What I did, I took 2mg for 4 days straight and then I jumped. I was at the beach when I jumped and had around 5 days off before I had to go back to work. I'd be lying if I said it didn't help. It also helped that I had no way of getting more subs for those 5 days, so I knew I was going to have to man up and deal with it.

First coupla days were good, the 3rd-5th days were a little rough on the mind. Then it gradually got easier to deal with. The physical withdrawal only went about a week (leg cramps, shits, minor headaches). I slept all right though. Smoked weed during it all too which helped a lot.

You can do it man. I know you can. If I can, there's hope for everyone!

Good luck!
