    @7yr addict...

    Try to find some way to occupy your time. Are you working? What about reading books, going for long walks, meditating, yoga, etc. Can you find any NA or AA meetings where you are? What about online meetings? There are SMART Recovery (12-step alternative) online meetings, too. I think keeping busy is key. And having some support, even if it's from people online.

    We're here for you, my friend. Take things a day at a time, or even an hour or minute at a time. Whatever helps keep you on the right path.

    I'm proud of you for going to rehab and wanting to improve your life. That's a huge step. Keep doing the next right thing! And remember we're here for you to lean on!
