From controlling, to eventually tapering and to ending my opiate use. - Part 4

  1. I'm just having a look now. Don't think I can do that version of legs up the wall just yet but I'm looking at others which look good, thanks.

    Update: Today was ok-ish. I never went above my maximum doses but there were many temptations, that Gremlin. I think I was a little down all day.

    Werecat added 591 Minutes and 1 Seconds later...

    Another update: I did something stupid. I woke up and took my normal dose as usual (i'm choosing to take a full pill when I wake up, because of waking pains).

    Then without thinking, as was habit before, I snorted another half pill.I did this after taking doses normally, it adds something extra to that stoned feeling. Stupid. But a learning curve. I guess that's why it's called a habit. I refuse to go over my daily dose though. Something I'm getting in my head. No, don't want to face those withdrawals I had before. It's silly really, my normal doses work fine at the moment (my pills never get rid of pain 100% but I like it that way, because I know not to push myself too far).

    Better smarten up. Going to distract myself today and draw. A habit I should be into.

    Yeah, stop snorting them. This gives a rush which is not helpful in addiction but contributes to the cycle. Take only orally and as prescribed. It's hard but you can do it.

    The yoga will ultimately help your back heal. Avoid forward bends and side stretches. The LUDW pose may look scary but usually reclined poses do not hurt the back. Just don't try to get your butt too close to the wall. Also, try to get to a pool. Swimming is an excellent form of low impact exercise.
