Thebear's Journey, quitting for a better life. - Part 4

  1. Thanks for the words LG.

    Today I've not used or really thought about it. I've slept all day, I'm sure I drank a little to much lastnight and thats whats got me so sleepy. I dont really feel RLS or stomach pains ect. Up until this point. It has been almost 32 hours since my last sub, and has been some time since my last REAL dosage i would use to get high.

    Back to you LG, I know that if i keep using that im going to get farther and do worse things. I've never really done needles, It was a 40-100$ a day habbit and I can't provide for my wonderful girlfriend if i'm using what I make serving everyday to turn around and buy drugs. I do have a back injury that will nag me from time to time, I'm going to stick to non narcotic pain medication for when it does start hurting. As for the damage that i've done, how long does it take for the damage i've done to my brain to repair and when will my tolerance be normal again? I don't want to actually need pain medication one of these day due to a serious injury and not be able to get the help I need.

    thebear added 9 Minutes and 27 Seconds later...

    i forgot to add that I was constipated, I'm sure it was from that 8mg of Imodium i took once a day after I quit for 3 days.

    Hey Brother, sounds like your doing really well so big ups for that.

    As to the double life thing, we all have secrets that are just for us but leading a double life can be very stressful and cause more problems than it's worth. I'm not saying tell her, just weigh up the pros and cons and if she loves you she'l be there for you. Just talk from my own experince her. keep up the god work

    This is where you're lucky, bear. It's not going to take you nearly as long to recover as most people, because younger bodies just heal faster. Most people say they start feeling normal around the 6 mth mark. I think you will be fine in just a few months.

    Just go easy on the alcohol. Right now you are in a critical period where it's very easy to just switch addictions without realizing that you are doing so. Don't drink more than is absolutely necessary, and then start to ease up after a week or so, when you are through with the worse of it.

    Read some of our threads, they are rude awakenings as to where you could be in a few years. I'm not trying to offend anyone, but the road we are on you don't want to be. I imagine most of us here wishes we could go back to 22 yrs old and change the road we are on. It's not pretty, and its not paved in gold.

    I am proud of you for taking this step. It takes courage to not only admit you have a problem, but also do something about it. Think of all the money you will save this year. By my calculations you could have enough saved to buy yourself a pretty sweet, brand new car by this time next year. That's a shit load of money. Hell, if you don't need a car, invest it.

    Either way, what I am trying to say is that you are doing a really great thing. Be PROUD, my man!
