    "Dave, Dave he's our man...."......ah....forget it... the cheerleader skirt doesn't fit me anyway, and it's getting harder and harder to keep the old pom poms lifted up! I'll just tell you that I'm sorry I haven't been here the way I wanted to, but you know the story if you've read my last several posts in my thread. UGH! Anyway, I'm just coming by to check on you, and I find you doing so GREAT! I'm so proud! Keep it up, and stop scaring me talking about how hard this is for OLD people! That applies to me, now! ((love, and hugs!)

    Hey Nightmare.....Yeah.....Lots going on yesterday...And a Long Work Day Today!! Wrapping Up Day 48 today....A little exhausted tonight.....But...Extremely Grateful!! For the most part...I am feeling pretty good Most days....but I know I still need Patience for those Receptors to ALL start firing again!! I think I've said this before on here....but.....I read once where......depending on how much you've taken.....and for How long......your Receptors Begin firing....( One set of two.....about every 30 days )...So if that's anywhere near true......I should have almost 2 sets firing now....out of a Total of 9 sets of receptors!??...Which would mean.....9 Months TOTAL , before they are ALL up and running! That's not to say having a few pair running ...out of 9 is a Bad thing?? I know....for Me.....last time I got past 50 days....and into the 2 to 3 month period......I felt about as Good as Ever!! So....In My opinion 50 to 60 days ….and You Can do Just about everything ….and feel Good!! I will say.....Exercise and Healthy Eating....H2o.....etc.....all Help!! Have a Great night and Tuesday!! Stay Strong Just For TODAY!!..xo

    Hello Dave, everything okay I presume? Now you see what happens when you take a couple of days off from the forum, you've got Lvg nghtmare worried sick about you, LOL!

    Just was curious if you ever venture into some of the other forums besides the "Need to Talk" forum? With your knowledge and experience with subs I know your advice and support would really help some of the other members that only post in the "Prescription Drug Addiction" forum and more specifically, the ones who post in the "Suboxone Treatment" forum? Update when you can? Take care always... God bless us all!

    PS
    You are really starting to rack up those clean days, that is AWESOME! Please don't ever go back to that junk, it's just not worth it! "Stay Strong Just For Today & The Rest Of Your Days"!

    Dave, all the receptor stuff goes right over my head. Don't know a receptor from a hole in the ground. But, it sounds like you are doing great! Wow....day 48?! You are one strong guy, and I admire that.... ((hugs))

    Mr. Peerson, I'm know you are very proud of yourself for finally getting off the garage again and I'm very proud of you too! The relief you must feel has to be the most amazing feeling ever? To be honest, I'm jealous! I hate feeling like I do! I'm still having difficulties getting back on track with my oxycodone taper! All I can do is keep trying, tomorrow is a new day! Keep on keepin on dave, you're doing magnificent! God bless us all!

The Relief IS wonderful....because ...Like You.....I had a Heck of a Time finally Jumping......It wasn't so much My Taper....But Getting down to that sliver of Subs ….and Not being able to jump!! It went on for Months......I hope and Pray You Can Get Back On Track.....And Get this Monster Behind You!! You KNOW how good it feels...….the Relief......That it's Finally Over......No More Spending Big Bucks.….Counting Pills.....Checking the Calendar.....etc!!! I think the worst for Me would be getting ready to go on a trip.....and Making sure I had what I needed until I got Home again!!??...Very Time Consuming...….and Stressful!!

    Thanks Nghtmare and Ryka…..Your Absolutely Right Nghtmare….I DO say beating Down the "BEAST"....But I Know it's only a Daily reprieve!! Like I said before....I'll take those reminders All day Long!! I also know that sometimes it's easy to get "Complacent" about Our Recovery.....thinking "I GOT THIS"......I know from So many Past experiences....That this is NOT the Case!! I am an ADDICT to the Fullest meaning of the WORD!! So....thanks for the reminder!!

    On with day 51....Sunny and beautiful here in the Pacific NW....Not very warm....but I'll take the Sunshine.....anytime in November!! Off to the Gym.....Have a Great day ….and Keep Fighting Ricky....Prayers on there way!! Stay Strong Just For TODAY..."Whatever Life Throws At You...Even If It Hurts.You….Just Be Strong And Keep Fighting Through It....Remember.....Strong Walls Shake.....But Never Crumble"!!..xo

    Yes, you'll most likely have to wait until morning some time to know for sure? I did give hopes a heads just in case it goes through? Hopefully you'll have the same success as Cat did? If in fact it does goes through then all I got to say, "IT'S ABOUT TIME"!!! LOL.... Fingers crossed! God bless us all!

    Hi Dave,

    If I may, I'd like to point out that you're tired after work because you're old. Not because you're clean. LOL! You know I love you and that I'm older than you so I can say that.

    Peace,

    Cat

    Lvg - and this "sneaky" comment is coming from the person who actually spelled it out on Cat's thread, that's too funny Lvg!

    dave - so it's confirmed from hopes! Congrats, you did it!
