    Today is the 6th day that I haven't used on top of my script. I hope I can find the strength to continue, tomorrow is payday so that will be the test. Its hard just finding something else to do. Coming to this forum always gives me a boost as going through normal life, you never really find someone else that understands. I used (smoked) last Friday when me and my kids dad went halves on a sixteenth. £35 each. He actually ripped me right off, fobbing me off with a tiny bit, he obviously thinks I'm stupid or he's too greedy and so used to conning people he just couldn't help himself. Well, the jokes on him because that was the last straw for me and he actually did me a favour. A relationship going nowhere based on drugs. I will leave him behind if I have to.

    Congrats you have to start some where, and 6 days can turn in to 6 months. 6 months into 6 years so keep it up. Sounds like you need to cut loose from this man he will take you down. Don't let that happen trust me when I say you are stronger then you think.

    Six days and counting... :) I hope you went through payday without any major setbacks, and had a good time with the kids instead of using. It's hard to be in a relationship with another user, especially if you have grown used to certain habits over the years. One way of quitting together is to gradually replace all those bad habits with new, healthy ones. Habits that the entire family will enjoy, such as playing more games together, going out together, enjoying short or longer trips away from home, etc.
    Keep us updated. :)

    Congratulations! Keep going! It will be better for you and your kids! And screw your child's father for ripping you off! I hate people who try to be sneaky but are so obvious.

    Wow! I sure hope you can find the strength too. I am sure this is a struggle. Try to think about how hard it will be if you spend most or all of your money. I am sure you need your money to take care of other things. Think about your overall health.

    Congrats! Keep it up!
    See what kind of a person drugs turn your into, I'm sure your baby dad's a swell guy normally. But drugs turns even the best people into petty bungholes.

    Good job! Keep it on the way you started and never be afraid, just remember why you do this, you do this in order to experience a better life. 6 day turns soon into 6 weeks, I know that if you look forward to it in might seem a long time, but when you'll look back at it, it shall seem just a fraction of a second.

    I hope all is well. I'm glad you have made it to six days and many more to come. As for that man, he will have to do what it takes to get himself clean and that is if he even wants to. No matter, this post is about you so congrats!!

    Well done, you are a strong women, to pull yourself out of a situation like that, can only be done if you have a great amount of strength. Don't look back you have the rest of your life ahead of you.:)

    Every day is a victory. Don't let anyone tell you different.

    Watch out for when life takes a swing back at you. It's often those moments, and not necessarily withdrawal, that drive us back to substance abuse.

    Congratulations and keep it up! We're all rooting for you.

    Angel_lou, how have you been doing? Quite a few days passed since those six days. I am hoping you found the strength to continue and you passed the test when you got paid. Either way we'd like to know how you are going. It's a fight that can be won and even when you are dealt a blow that sets you back, you can get up and continue to fight. Please be in touch.
