    The financial part of this is really good motivation, at least for me. I am no longer spending every last penny, and then some, however i got it, on pills. It's liberating knowing that I am financially stable again! I think I'm going to plan a vacation....beach or music festival...decisions decisions!

    thanks everybody all your positive thoughts and support really does help!

    and il be honest i prolly spent about 900 a month on these things,
    but thats in the past.
    Day 5
    i have only taken 1 and half this morning and felt good!
    i am afraid to fart, sorry body is a little sore
    but this is nothing i can not handle,
    the whole not getting a lot sleep thing has me feeling like iv been on a vegas vacation with out all the drunken debauchery.
    any who im done taking these. today was the last day.
    so here goes nothing!

    Hey, topfrog, I didn't notice the party thing: BE VIGILANT. This is a most dangerous period. I'd rather hear that you hit an NA/AA meeting. Addiction is serious business, Always Always Always remember that 1 is too many and 1000 are not enough. Hang in there! Stay strong!

    Peace,

    Hey guys. Top frog checking in,
    Going on day 3. It's a breeze I have no clue why but I'm just rolling with it! With the exception of minor body aches but I think that's more to do with push up,sit ups I have been doing all week.
    Didn't go to my party last night stayed in and watched some tv.
    But I do have an all day block party I'm not missing!
    Happy 4th everyone!

    I'm new to the forum and have followed your story before I got up the nerve to post, realizing I can't do this any longer by myself. I also held my breath when I read about the party. Being only 10 days clean in my recovery and from reading diligently all the posts, I realize that I am currently in a vulnerable state and need to work with that by avoiding any temptation that may lead to a weak moment. Everyone says it just takes one time. I believe them.

    I'm happy to hear you are on day 4! Congrats!! Continue the good work and please be careful with the alcohol. I'm cheering you on top frog. You have friends encouraging your continued progress in places you didn't know you had.

    If you are addicted person you should try to get busy yourself in other task so that your attention not towards the cause of addiction.

    I recommend the following steps:

    First, I suggest a medical detox which could be done on an outpatient basis using suboxone.

    Second, I encourage you to enroll in a chemical dependency treatment program.

    Third, please try alternative pain treatment while finding out how much of your pain is central pain or hyperalgesia being caused by the opiates.
    I wish you well in your efforts.

    It seems you are quite serious about getting rid of Noroco additction. But part of you is not only discouraging your efforts but also making your issue more complicated. Why do you feel ashamed of informing your family of the issue? Can't you imagine there will be none except your family beside you in times of support if anything goes wrong? So, don't hide yourself and show youorself up before you go for Detox program.
