Avatar f tn Hey everyone...I know I'm new on here, but I found something that is really helping me early on in my recovery (I'm on Day 6 opiate withdrawal), and thought I would share it in case anyone else could benefit from it as well. It's an App for Ipad or Iphone called, Recovery Box....and I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone who is fighting the fight against their addiction.

Avatar m tn I have seen a posting requesting an answer to a question about a drug to combat wd,s, I have a friend who is a judge and runs a very successful drug court and he stated the his court administers a drug called visiral, I'm not sure if that is the correct spelling, but he claims that it immediately arrests the craving for opiates, in his words, it is a miracle drug, one dosage type thing. Unfortunately I,m not in a position to come out to my Dr., family, & and friends.

Avatar f tn My ex fiance has a cocaine/alcohol addiction. He was addicted for a year but used for around four years when he went clubbing. He functioned normal up until the last 6 months of his addiction then he changed, he was emotionally detached, he lied & never seemed to care about anything or anyone. He hurt me so bad emotionally & destroyed our relationship & had absolutley no sympathy when i fell apart over what he,d done. It is just so out of character.

Any addiction specialist worth their salt will first try something called a BI ( brief intervention) which is basically a doctor telling thier addicted patient about the medical ramifications of sustained/prolonged drug abuse. For many addicts this is enough.

444932 tn?1273980797 It is open for everyone to view, if you wish. In addition to addiction to Lortab, for the past couple of years, I have also struggled a lot with severe depression. I started collecting quotes that were meaningful and/or helpful to me in my struggles. I know some people think these things are cheezey or cliches, but I know that looking back over some of these quotes has helped give me much needed boosts once in awhile.
Avatar m tn Its been pretty miserable. Its fairly easy for to me get clean. Staying clean is my problem. I have battled addiction for 20 years.I have a chronic health issue. I know one day at a time. But staying clean for the rest of my life seems impossible. I am concerned. Right now I am really craving the drug. Any suggestions on long term sobriety?
Avatar f tn Sub is not a wonder drug it can be a positive tool towards recovery but without recovery care like counseling or aa/na if can easily become a replacement for your DOC ...When you put the two together then it can be very effective tool towards recovery .What were you taking and how much of it ..
Avatar f tn Addiction is addiction. On July 1st I was 28 years "sober" - off booze. Problem is I soon found meds and started all over again.
Avatar m tn Do you think its ok to use music lyrics as your mood some ppl use quotes and quotes out the bible. I dont mind whatever helps the person in need. Id love to hear what you all think ?
Avatar f tn I have been on methadone now for about 1 and a half years......for much of this time i was using drugs (Synthetic Heroin) as well.....yes i know that that isnt good...but due to various reasons it was very hard to completely quit.......(FYI I was on the pills alone for only about 7 months when I decided for financial reasons that I had to try to quit or a least cut back a lot)........ Now that two of my closest drug friends are gone.....
Avatar f tn I know this is easy for me to say now that im on my way to divorce,but had my wife given me a choice between her an addiction, I know for a fact my road to recovery would be so much easier. Knowing that she was the reward for cleaning up "my mess" up! So its up to you for sure. You know what the two of you have an what this guy is about,outside of the drugs. I take it he didnt have these addictions when you 1st met or you wouldnt have been with him in the 1st place right?
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with an addictive personality as well as a dual diagnosis (depression and drug addiction). I used meth and Loracets daily for 6 years. These 2 demons turned out to be my drug's of choice after trying most everything out there. Financially it was killing me and destroying my family life. I'm not sure why, because my husband is the best, that I had an affair with someone 15 yrs younger than I am. This went on for 6 months.
670748 tn?1291075094 crack was my doc for the last year of many in active addiction. i was already in late-stage addiction when i discovered the stem and i took off like there was no tomorrow, becomeing an all-day, every day user immediately. $hit almost killed me, but i've been clean and sober now for 1,709 days. i will suggest to you that it's dangerous to "lay there thinking about" crack.
Avatar f tn I could find someone his age, sex and same drug addiction. There are many of us! We want to help, to spread the message and there is nothing better than one addict talking to another addict because they understand and will not judge. Will get back to you soon.
Avatar n tn He was very understanding and educated about addiction. I took my first dose of subutex today and will take a 1 dose for the next 2 days and then go to the suboxone. He said 1 year is a typical stay on suboxone. This is the only thing that concerns me. I have heard mixed reviews about how long to stay on this medication. Any comments from those who have used it. I really want to stay sober from vicodin but don't want to stay on another drug any longer than I need to.
Avatar m tn Hi there and welcome. I have to say that I agree that you should not stay with this man. Sweetie, an addict puts their addiction above all else. They can not possibly have a healthy relationship or even a real relationship with anyone because they have something controlling them (their drug). That will rule all of his thoughts and all of his actions. When we date---- we are choosing a partner. We are supposed to weed out those that are not right for us or not great partners.
