    @Sammykb hey there! congrats on day 7!! that's fantastic! :)

    i'm sorry it feels so crummy right now. there's no doubt withdrawal sucks... but play the tape through... one day you'll wake up feeling a bit better, and the next day, even better, and the next day, maybe even good, and the next, maybe GREAT! one day, you'll feel like your old self before you ever had a thought of any drug entering your body...like a kid playing tag with his/her friends all happy and free.... play the tape through to see and feel THAT... :)

    A few tips:

    Put your recovery first… if you slack on taking care of YOU… you could find yourself feeling crummy and tempted to go back to old habits.

    One day at a time… it’s not just a cliche. Helps to think about things in small, daily segments.

    Talk to others… this forum is a great place to communicate, get things off your chest, connect, and share your struggles or victories. We’re here!

    Embrace optimism! :)

    Some sort of exercise may help!

    Hit a support group! AA or NA or SMART Recovery… something to stay connected and supported!

    And don’t give up, no matter what!

    Hope this helps and hope to keep seeing you around!

    Hey there, I've been watching this thread and was honestly quite impressed that you made it to day7. From my experience and the way you said you felt on the big 1 week mark I figured you cold turkied or jumped off at a high dose. I'd like to know how you're feeling if you get a chance.
