@itspossible

Doing okay, thanks. To be honest though, still a struggle...sobriety that is. Now that I've overcome this, I find the struggle is real with just trying to deal with life. I was not myself..numb for so long due to that drug, I often ask myself..who am I now that I'm clean? I'm better now in so many ways, but it's difficult to remember who I was before I began taking all that stuff. I am doing it, will continue onward and will never go back but I am noticing the weight is becoming more prevalent as time passes. But, I am clean and free from all that stuf and that's something I am grateful for. How are things with you?

@needhelp I know what you mean..I don't have any MAJOR issues, with that said however, I do still have times/days where I struggle with all sorts of minor things that brings on depression,no motivation, lazy a**, frustration, etc..
Like you also, my life is so much better in so many ways but I'm still searching for some direction,like I'm lost and don't know where I'm going in my life..Im doing things that HAVE TO BE DONE, and not doing things that NEED TO BE DONE if that makes any sense..Im surviving, is a good way to put it..
I was on a 2 decade binge before quitting, so theres that..
Life is short and the clock is ticking, ive already waisted so much of it, that's what worries me the most..
Have a great day to all..

Hello itspossible, Let me start by saying how Proud of You I am. Your strength at being and staying clean is an inspiration. You should be proud of yourself. Life on Life's terms.. be greatful your alive today and clean today. Some of us don't have that chance. Making meetings? I know for me it takes time and I have to put the work in ya know... acceptance of time lost eh..my journey has not been easy to say the least I'm still struggling when life shows up.but there is absolutely nothing so grand in my life that will ever make me pick up and use. I roll with the Good days and the bad..I do believe all will be well in Time... Stay Strong for Today..

hello all ive been a member on here it seems like forever.Ive been clean 5 yrs I say Im clean as Ive been in a methadone program & though I will not dscuss that here I will say I feel it has helped me get myself & my life back
Anyways in August (less than 1mth after my 50th BD)I had a brain bloodclot.They put a shunt with coils in the base of my brain & for now Im ok

I am struggling so so bd with cigarettes.I love them & hate them.I was told I MUST quit or I will develop more clots.
You would think that woud be enough to make me stop.Sadly it hasn't.I will do so very good only to grab more when the stress of life gets too much

Any and all advice wil hel.I know knowledge means power so the more I can learn the stronger I may become....I don't want to take Chantix because I have very bad reactions with it.
So please if you can take the time I really could use some input

thank you for any help
MJ

Good morning itspossible:) Congratulations on your new job that is wonderful!! I am so happy for you. I'm doing good no complaints. I'm having a quiet Saturday enjoying my coffee with my cat on my lap.lol How are you today? How's your smoking doing? Before I quit cigarettes I vaped. That helped me quit. I reduced my daily cigarettes over time then switched. It didn't happen over night but with time I quit😆. Have a beautiful day........peace
