Deadsexy and I linked up here on this sight while he was 8 days removed from sub, and he has been and
Continues to be that beacon of hope for me.

I didn't have much issues disconnecting from sub, unless it is yet to hit me, so that is said with caution.

Never, unlike oxy wd, missed three days of meals, or spent hours on the throne with runs. My biggest issues have been
Exclusively lack of motivation and fighting malaise and social isolation. I didn't have the temperature sensitivity, goose bumps, and GI issues
Most do and for that I am thankful. Sleep wasn't even an issue, but I fought that with a klonopin at night through the first two
Weeks. I have now stopped all drugs, excluding cigs, another thing I'd love to lay down though I only have maybe four or five cig a day.
For the short term I think that an acceptable vice.

My sub cravings are zero, I hated the way it made me feel(see my other posts). Oxy cravings are about a four right now, manageable and decreasing.

Bottom line is I am slowly starting to enjoy the simple things in life again, my family, my animals, music etc. energy is still low, but most days are slightly improved in that
Regard.

The biggest hurdle for me was forgiving myself for my addiction. Nobody should feel undervalued for it. To want to feel better is a basic human instinct. But we must find that reward minus chemicals that imbalance the brain plain and simply.

For those willing to try, freedom is just a little hardship away.

Thanks you DS.

Good Job DS... it does get better


I struggled with the whole getting back to my old normal self thing... the more I thought about it, the more I realized I didn't want to be my old self, my old self loved taking drugs, as for the normal part well I don't think I have ever been normal so I just accepted myself the way I am.... I did do a lot of thinking about that which was a good thing


There were days I had no energy to work out so I would drink some creatine, or a supplement called mesomorph ( someone on here recommended it for pre workout energy) and that gave me the umph I needed to get my ass in the gym on those days.... then little by little my energy came back :)


hang tough this can be done
