Back sliding, spiking....

Postby cheeps » Wed Oct 11, 2017 10:05 am

You aren't the first and won't be the last.

Are you on hold? Is it job related? :punchballs:

Have you spiked? Is it relationship related? :shred:

Are you suck in a rut? Is it fear? :banghead:


For whatever reason....we all get stuck in cycles or just plain lie in the ditch for awhile.

What next?

When all else REALLY fails and you are so close to the end....

What next? :ogeez:


This is a thread that is devoted to getting out of the mud.

How did you do it? Because...you have done it before in other areas of your life...so, do you need a wake up call? A brickbat to the head? A shitty DR who cuts you off? A detox? A real life person that steals your meds? Money?


You are here because you are strong and want to get off opiates. You've educated yourself ad nauseum. You've gotten low....

My advice...?

Get out your pen and paper....a notebook will be just fine


I'm waiting.....

Hurry up... :P

Live in this day and write down three things that have meaning to you. They can be tiny or big.

Mine are....
My loving son
Crows cawing in my yard
My spider plant.

Everyday find something that you can do to help your world. Smile at a child. Open a door for a strong person. Kill a mosquito. Stay in this day and be helpful in a small way. You got this.

I'm still holding and debating whether I can start a new job....I woke up yesterday in wds. I've been going to the chiropractor for treatment. I can't sit for very long. How am I going to start a desk job standing?

Heh Cheeps,
just my two cents but I work for a very large company with lots of office space and people with desk jobs. The latest thing around here is these stands that attach to or sit on top of people's desks that swing the monitor or laptop up/down, thus allowing them to be able to work standing or sitting. A lot of employers these days are focused on as healthy and productive working environments as possible. Who knows maybe it's an option if you do take the job soon.

My three things are
Being present for my kids track meet today
How good music is again
Taking the time to watch the sun rise today

Tim...I got a bonus today.

I work with a lady that has vascular dementia. We watched the sunset beHind a cloud. You couldn't see the sun...But we knew it was there. It looked like mountains in the sky...And she saw the Dragon the clouds looked like too.

She's in pretty bad shape so it was special.It's amazing what you can see looking up.

Cross our fingers....they might get me one. That would be awesome.

Its military affiliated though so it might be I have to suck it up. I'm hoping there's one gathering dust in a storeroom somewhere.

Hey all, my name's Val. I'm new to this site and clueless on how forums work in general so my apologies if I seem like a dumbass. I found the link to this site while looking into negative long term effects of subs (in all of it's forms). Is there a general forum that talks about strictly that? Was thinking of starting my own topic but wasn't quite sure if that was allowed. Any feedback would help. I'm really struggling with memory loss lately and am intrigued to read if others have similar issues including this one and many others I experience. Thanks in advance.

Val....You are in the right place. Go to the subsux part of the forum and start a thread. There's lots of stories here with the info you want. I'll post some links later today or tomorrow. It would be helpful to have you tell us if you think you are having more than fog. What else? Start a thread and let us know.

Welcome to the right place!
