Dear All,

Just checking in after many, many months to say... I am clean two years and four months!! It IS possible after all... and I never thought I would be able to say that.

Would be great to hear from any old-timers who remember me, and, of course, any newcomers!

Kind regards,

Hidden Light

Hi. My name is Thomas and I'm new to the board and a Meth addict. Over the past year I've been in and out of Rehab/Detox. To be honest it hard. I recently moved back in with my parents and have isolated myself due to all my friends being Meth addicts. I haven't made any NA meetings but have started reading the NA big book. Any advice is welcomed. Thanks, Thomas

MAKE THE MEETINGS !!!

That is where the magic happens.

Half measures won't work.

Good luck.

Thanks Bob. Pulled up a list last night. There's one every night here in town and will make one tonight @ 7. I'v known meeting were a must, but just lacked the energy really just dident want to get out in public. Bad nerves I guess - seems they checked when the meth use stopped. Thanks again.

I found that my "bad nerves" were untreated addiction and alcoholism.

Regular meeting attendance is just what the Dr. ordered (Dr. Bob Smith)

All the best.

Ive suffered from anxiety and depression since I lost a brother in a car accident 20 years ago. im taking a low dose of Cymbalta, but I haven't been on it long enough to see any good from it.

im sure the redbull energy drinks are not helping. lol
