Hey Jeffery! Oh family time is the best hu? I've been keeping my nephew during the day through the week and it's been a blessing. My son is 7 and he is 8. They are big buddies:). We have a lot of fun. I miss having a dog. My apartment is not really big enough for a big dog and i've always had a big dog. I like it a little rough lol and little dogs are so fragile i get nervous around them.


So i have gained a few pounds and i have been ok with it. My motto was better chunky then a junkie. I am at a strong 137 and i don't think that's bad but i'm not a fan of exercise. So i have started jogging in the morning and i have been doing this for 2 weeks so far. My body is sore but i'm not giving up! That's about all i got. Going to a meeting at noon and i get to do the coffee today so i feel needed, what a good feeling:)

Another great HOT sober day for me. Seeing my son enjoy the summer is a real blessing. I taught him how to ride his bike without the use of training wheels, so he's having a good time with that, and getting lots of boo boo's. Good thing i am able to be there to give him magic kisses:).

Hit an early meeting this morning it was a good one. Had a bit of a meltdown yesterday, because my birthday is tomorrow and i am gonna miss my brother calling me and that hurts. I am doing better after the meeting. I never felt like using i just needed to talk to someone. Those old timers sure do know what life's about. I am grateful for the wisdom they all shared with me.

2 years! I sure never thought i'd make it past 2 weeks. I had a great sober day. People would ask me, "well Jessica what have you learned?" I would then respond, first i had to learn how to love myself, shake a few other things around, my sponsor is not my babysitter or second mother lol, my recovery is slower then most and that's ok. I seem to have lots of questions, take suggestions and follow through on them, and many other things that help me stay sober. I truly believe that without the help of the program (12 steps)and the people in it, i wouldn't have made it. But that's just me.

Ok so I haven't taken any pills since technically Wednesday . I didn't do much yesterday and today I keep feeling like WD symptoms want to creep up on me but it hasn't completely happened yet if that makes sense. It's a weird feeling but doable. Anyone have any advice to help get through day 2?

Day 2, well as i remember i was curled up in a ball thinking OMG I JUST CAN"T DO THIS. If left on my own i'm sure i wouldn't have made it. I went to treatment to get clean. You see i lost everything i ever had before i was willing to get clean. I wanted to be out of the handcuffs those pills put on me, but i also didn't want to go through withdraws, i'll tell you what they told me. Get up and get over it! Your gonna have some pain to get to the other side, but it is worth it. If your trying to do this alone(without a support group or counciling ) it's gonna be hard. That's the truth. Who the hell wants to go through the withdraws? Nobody i ever knew, but your gonna have to suck it up. Try to some yoga, go for walks, anything to get out of your head. It;s mental as well and your body is telling you HELP! It gets better, just hang in there.


Thanks Bec! I have a good life today much better then i had when using for sure. I went to a Zumba class this morning and had soooo much fun. Now tomorrow i'll be sore and whinney lol! Later i'm going to a baseball game:) Life is good today!

Another great sober day. The baseball game was awesome because i can remember going and leaving. It was my son's first baseball game:) He ate lots of food and got to take home a baseball from the players. It feels good to be able to be a good mom.

I had a wonderful weekend. Got a babysitter on Saturday so we got to go out to eat at a really cool place called Hammerheads. I had a Elk burger cooked in duck fat on a pretzel bun with brie cheese and fries cooked in duck fat. OMG It was the best burger iv'e ever had. And then we went to the movies to see Tammy.(funny movie). On Sunday i went to 2 meetings and then went to the gym.
