    Wow, Ladyblue day 26. You are getting there. I feel a sparkle in your post. You are laughing again. You will still have ups and downs. We all do, but again that is real life. Nothing special about it. It's the ebb and flow of existence. You're getting it back. Still making no life altering decisions I hope? Take Care. Miss Dogs/Sheryl

    Anyone experiencing fatigue and lack of ambitions after 30 days, don't get discouraged. Another friend of mine here suffered so the way to 45 days until he started to really feel changes. For me it was after 30 days. I'm into 112 days or so being completely clean and very contempt. I won't lie, today was the first time I had a pretty good craving. But it was a trigger that i was very loyal too. I just happened to be on the first day of back to school for my kid, i used to pop pills like crazy on the first day of school due to meeting new teachers.lol. i thought i want going to have a strong craving but i did. Scary but I'm completely cut off from all pills.so that helped tremendously . Now is almost 3pm and im feeling really good with no cravings. So beware, its a long journey . I read elsewhere that you have to be clean for at least 6 months to fully be out of it. I guess I'm half way there. But the good news is that normally every day so far had been normal and I'm very happy for the most part . Just today it was odd because of the trigger.

    Wow Crazyfrog...112 days!! Absolutely awesome! I will be there soon, I feel positive. Beginning day 11, hope it will be better than the last half of 10. I thought the physical WDs were past but I see they still pop up to say I'm here every once in awhile. Just a few bouts; I think it's passed now. I've actually been stepping outside and enjoying some fresh air the last two evenings. Beautiful here in Virginia this time of year. I had forgotten just how beautiful. Good luck all!! :-)

    Thats me, my whole body hurts, my teeth, my knees, my back, my feet, my head...lol dang it man! I am still clean! 29 days clean and counting... I can endure a little pain... but the mental is really hard! I was so angry today, just pissed off for no reason... I think it is the lack of sleep I am getting... I still get up every 2 hours look at the clock and try my hardest to go back to sleep... even with the sleepy time tea....

    I am so Glad u are on day 112, you have done a great job... The craving will come and they will go..You are strong you got this....Get behind me beast....lol

    Normal. I had mood swings even after day 30. They subside and eventually level off.

    Thxs! Trust me, i never thought i would make it this far. Im very stable now. Don't crave or think at all of popping pills.Time does help. You are a baby at day 10 really. You still have the mental side to get through. You just have to hold on. When i logged in my journey here 3 months, there were a few that joined me. Most being very close in the days clean that i had. Fast forward a few weeks, only 1 other member [rhodesy] made it though. Everyone else disappeared. I'm sure relapse. That's the game we play. Eventually it sticks though. ... once you hit 2 months, its a lot easier.

    Hey Anna May (lady blue) Happy 30 Days!!

    Whoop, whoop!! Look at you. Having a regular night can be the best night. His everything going at home? Are you keeping to no big decisions for a while? Still think that's the best plan.. Can you remember when 30 days seemed impossible?

    Fantastic month. Big Hugs. Miss Dogs/Sheryl

    Happy Birthday Lady!
    And congrats on a whole month free!
    Thanks for posting what you did about not feeling good after 30 or 45 days. I've given up on my detox at 25 days and even 39 days in the past because I thought I would never feel better again. This next time will be different! I know it may take longer but I will feel better eventually.

    Hey Poppy Girl

    Thank you, yes a whole month free.. I can tell you it was not easy but I am doing it and yes I have up and down day and I can even recognize my triggers....So I know what to stay away from and how to handle it when it is right here in the house.

    This time has been a learning experience...

    One day at a time clean by my choice.....32 days clean today

    Good Evening Silverling

    Yes I use that when I say I wanted to be free.... You are welcome about the encouraging words... I always appreciate when you stop by and leave your encouraging words....

    Yes I think the book will have to wait until I get a little better I have to be able to write it without living it over again... If that makes any sense....

    Thanks Silverling.......

    I love clean by choice as well, when someone makes you do something it's not by choice...

    It's by chance, and it;s a chance you will use again if it's not your own choice.....

    Have a wonderful day....
