Re: First Week Clean

3 years clean now. It all seems so long ago and like a different person lived that life. I cannot even fathom now that hold that heroin and suboxone had on me but I know I will never ever use again. All the years lost, the trauma, tragedies, selfishness, physically abused and self abused. It was not...

Re: First Week Clean

2 years. 1 month. Clean. Sober. Alive. It seems like I was never any different. This is now the new norm. Funny how habit and repetition can totally create a different person and different personality. I dont know if its because of the drug abuse, but I really cant remember much of the person I was....

Re: First Week Clean

Holy catfish I've been clean 8 months! I don't even think of myself as being clean anymore and in retrospect, I sure as hell never thought I would be. But alas here I am- healthy, well and surviving. Just an update as I reflect on the past few months. I currently don't have any lingering effects rea...

Re: First Week Clean

4 month update. Woah. It's really something that I am still clean and can't even imagine that I took so long to do so. Stubbornness, fear and self doubt crippled my will power previously, and now I wish I could have gone back 5 years ago and slap myself in the face. But alas, we live and learn from ...

Re: 15 Days Out

Hi Woody! Really awesome to hear how far you've already come. How are you doing? I would think you would turn a corner soon but everyone is different. I am at day 45 clean. First week was the worse but tolerable besides a couple nights of no sleep at all. Lethargic as all hell. By 2 weeks I could sl...

Update Re: First Week Clean

Just an update: Currently 1 month and 1 week clean. Woohieee! So no cravings for me. Pretty much feeling normal besides still having a bit of a lack of energy. This is partially because I haven't been exercising as much and eating as well. I do eat healthy meals but have been having unhealthy sugary...

Re: First Week Clean

Hi Justin! Glad my experience has you responding. 40 hours plus, way to go! I know it's hard to comprehend, but I think the majority of issues are psychological. Especially when, like us, we were dependent on something for years! So just hang on and take the experience and you will reflect on it and...

Re: First Week Clean

Thanks you two for the recommendations, OpenMind I am checking them out right after I post! As for an update: 15 days clean. Can't believe I feel as fine as I do and am trying not to get upset at myself for waiting this long and letting myself get so worked up about quitting. No real physical issues...

Re: First Week Clean

I think I would inhale capsules of inspiration right now;) feeling a bit of body ache and have to force motivation. Im hoping the more I force the more I will get moving and eventually get myself feeling better. What kind of protein powder do you use, sister? I need to find a vegan friendly as I hav...

Re: First Week Clean

Thanks, I like your name too, OpenMind, just perfect for anything in life. Actually mine is based off a ragtag band I had once called Dark Bliss, so you hit that right on the head. I hope you did get some inspiration to make some healthy eating habits, I'm glad you responded to that. It can be hard ...

First Week Clean

As of now, I am 7 days clean and not looking back!:) Thought I’d post my experience and also add to this thread down the line. I had been silently reading posts on this website for months, but could not allow myself to get on when I jumped or between then and now, because really it just gave me so m...

Re: Supplements/Support for Withdrawals

Thank you all for responding, it’s really helping me ease my mind and I am grateful that there is this outlet for all of us. Fork- I am concerned about the panic becoming overwhelming. Unfortunately I do not have insurance nor access to subs, but I just keep thinking if worse comes to worse I can go...

Re: Supplements/Support for Withdrawals

Thank you for responding Owl. I am leery about using supplements but have come across some success stories that said some of these helped. I really am posting to see if anyone has used these types of items and what their takes are on it. I only have about 4 mg left of one strip and I am done. I dose...

Supplements/Support for Withdrawals

I will soon be stopping my suboxone use and have tried preparing as much as possible. I have read the "Thomas Recipe" and others suggestions, but couldn't find details on the supplements, such as quantities/how often, etc. Here are my questions: What quantities of vitamins/supplements are suggested/...
