Early recovery from opiates, benzos & ice. - Part 7

By la-di-da · Aug 18, 2014 · ·
  1. Bailed on the NA meeting, watched movies & got drunk instead. Had fun although this needs to change, I know that I'm just putting a bandaid over how I'm feeling and it's only going to get worse, what's the point of getting clean from opiates & benzos, only to mess my reality up with too much booze? I should be on my motorbike chewing up the km's late at night, with the wind on my face and freedom on my mind.

    La-di-da, I've been where you are. Maybe this will help: Obviously you don't want to replace opiate addiction with alcohol addiction. But there is a big difference. It is extremely difficult to use opiates in moderation; that's why there are so few successful chippers out there. There are, however, lots of people who drink moderately. I don't plan to ever touch opiates again, but I'm glad I can have a couple of drinks now and then. If you over do it, you may have to give up alcohol completely too. I don't mean to lecture you, but remember ... moderation is the key. Good luck!
