Hey, sorry but i deleted this post. I dont want it to be available for everybody on the internet, privacy you know…
Welcome! Glad you’ve taken the step to come here and look for help. Take time to read different threads. There’s a lot of great information here. Also it’ll help keep you busy. How long have you been clean? What are you planning to do differently this time?
Thank you for replying. Ive been sober since last night. And maybe i cant sleep toning without pills, so im trying to taper down as fast as i can.
The things that keep me busy are my company and my girlfriend. Im really anxious for the weekend, those are the hardest days not to use. But we ll see if i can do it this time. At least my stash is flushed through the toilet!
Hey! Glad you’re here. Sounds like you’re on the right path to stay sober this time around. Hope to see you here often
Thankyou so much:) I really hope i stay on here as well, as soon as im not active anymore you know things arent going great:) but im feeling positive today😄
Congratulations!! You’re here and ready for a change, that’s a beautiful thing! Now, one day at a time-know that you’re going to end that day sober and do whatever it takes to make it happen. You can absolutely do this with us, I’m glad you’re here!
Hey there. This is gonna be quick, start work in 5 minutes. I’m glad you are here. My addictions were alcohol and benzos too. Nip it in the ass now 'cause ten years down the road it only gets worse, I promise.
Glad you are here. Getting sober is the best decision I ever made. It made all the other aspects of my life so much better. You prob ably already know this, but you may feel lousy for a few days. Try to rest, remember to eat if you can, hydrate, and be good to yourself. All you need to focus on is that you don’t use today. Keep checking in. There are a lot of really wise folks here who have been right where you are.
Taking the first step is the hardest. You have the desire to change! You can do it!
I have daddy issues too lol. I haven’t dealt with mine either. I’m working on taking the nexts steps too. Alcohol has been my main vice, I’ve abused painkillers in the past even though I wasn’t aware of it at the time. I’ve used MDMA, mushrooms, and marijuana on a simi-rare recreational basis. I did coke once but it didn’t really do anything for me. I’ve got 28 days sober other than my prescribed anti-anxiety meds (taking as prescribed) But I’ve just reached out for professional mental help, and if that’s an option for you I would recommend it.
Thankyou for being so open to tell that. You are going in the right direction! I do get help, but i never told them about my benzo and amphetamine use these days. And i feel emberassed to tell them that i lied about my drug use. So thats why i want to do it by myself (and with the community on here). What to do about the daddy issues, idk yet haha. He just deserves a punch in the face. Have a lovely day
Yeah dude! There is no time like the present to embrace sobriety. If you think it’s bad now, fast forward 10 yrs. it will be much worse. Either prison or the opposite of life.
I would address your usage in the professional environment. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about, in fact it takes a lot of courage to put on the table and address it! News flash! We’ve all lied about our usage at one point or another. Take accountability and push that elephant out of the room!
Stick around man! You can do this with the support and love in this forum.
I wish you blessings, because luck runs out sometimes.So many blessings.Stay strong…Keep fighting you can do it
Being a Pornography and Masturbation addict, I can tell you that it’s never been my intention to cheat on or hurt my precious wife. It’s a disease.
Have you confronted your dad about this? I have been an addict for over 10 years. Maybe he also has a sex addiction that hes trying to overcome? Maybe your Mom even knows about it?
I dont know. I dont have those answers. I can say though, that blaming others for your addiction will not give you long term sobriety.
How you holding up??
Hey, way better than when i made this post haha. It wasnt easy the first days at all, but except a tiny amount of weed ive been sober. And not planning to use again in the future. Thanks for asking!
