I’m Heather. Im 44 years old and I have two children. I am a recovering meth addict. I never thought those were words that I would say about myself.… As of today, April 7, 2017, I have 12 days clean. The physical withdrawals the first few days were absolutely unbearable, and have gotten so much better now. That alone is something that I cannot go through again. It was horrible. As of today, I’m feeling much better and have noticed myself becoming more interactive with Home and family. I chose not to go to rehab, and hopefully that was it an acceptable decision. Addiction is something that runs in my family and I know that it will be a forever fight, as I grew up with an alcoholic mother. I was halfway through my masters degree, when meth entered my life. Needless to say I failed out of school, and I am currently trying to obtain the money to go back. I am determined to go back to school and finish my degree. I downloaded this app, because I need motivation and support. Feel free to email me.
Hi @NoleChic and welcome to the forum. Congrats on taking the first big step. To get through the first week or two as you did is an incredible accomplishment. You can do this!
Here is a useful thread on getting through early recovery:

Congratulations, this is huge!!! You’re on your way to a valued life I’m 12 days into my sobriety and though there have been a few moments of “Aw, drats!” I am very proud of how it’s going. Excited for you to share your journey! Keep it up!
Congratulations on your 12 days!
Thank you so much!
Congratulations on your 12 days. I created a recovery chart in my bedroom that allows me to mark out everyday that I’m free from alcohol. I reward myself every 7 days with a hot tub date, movie night, favorite dinner, etc. I think you should try it. Good luck and I’m rooting for you!!
