Hi everyone,

To make a long story short, I was a sub patient until my doc went out of business. Maintained on roxis for a time, then went on methadone. Still was relapsing while on methadone. Lost my job third week in August, and realized the only way I could get the monkey off my back was remove myself from society for a while. Went to a non-AA based seven week inpatient program. Was released Oct 12. As most of you know, the last few years of an opiate addiction are no fun, and most of us want to quit. I have left the physical addiction behind me, but I know the toughest part will be the mental side. But I now have some good tools to implement better coping skills. Right now I am feeling good, looking for a job, getting back into life.

Hope everyone is doing good.
Jimmy

Good Job Jimmy!!!!

I can only imagine how much courage it took to go inpatient like you did, I'm way impressed!!

I'm glad you're being realistic about your addiction and you know the mental challenge can be a bear, but you're right, now you have some tools you can use to deal with your addiction in a healthy way. One day at a time, man.
