I am so grateful to be given another chance at a real life. Whatever I was doing before wasn't living. I was so unhappy and I did terrible things to myself to get drugs or money, I had no respect for myself, drugs ruled my world. I am finally truly free from my active addiction. Of course I don't want to be on suboxone forever, and I know I will need to wean off of it when I feel ready, but I don't need to worry about that just yet.

Looking back, I see where I went wrong and that gives me confidence that I will not fall down the wrong path again. Today is my 90 days and I am so proud of myself. I appreciate my life now. I moved in with my boyfriend and he supports me 100%, we go to meetings together and he tries his best to understand, and he does a damn good job. I love my life now. If I can get through this mess I know anyone can, if they are serious. Don't give up, no one ever said this would be easy, but it is worth it!!!

Thank you, I know now that is where I went wrong before, not making the meetings led me to relapse and I won't make that mistake again!

In less than two weeks I will have 10 months clean!!! NA really works! I have started working my steps with my sponsor and it feels so good to finally be doing the right thing for myself and I have met so many other amazing addicts in recovery that I can relate to. I am so grateful for Narcotics Anonymous it saved my life and continues to keep me clean every day . We can't do this alone!! :)

"Meeting makers make it." ?

Really? That's funny, beause statistically speaking that is not true 95% of the time. That's like saying people who go to the gym are automatically going to be in-shape. It doesn't work that way. Getting clean, and staying clean from any addiction, is ultimately up to the individual. And going to meetings CAN be beneficial, but it can ALSO be extremely detrimental.

Let's call it the way it really is here.

OP, I'm glad your cleaning up. Keep this ball rolling in the right direction. You have this in you.

Hello Squizz:

Sounds like you've got a mad-on for AA.
I found that AA works 100% of the time for those that work it. Good luck.

Your buddy Bob down south in Essex County.
