Hi, I'm new to this site. My name is Angie and I'm 30 years old. I've been addicted to painkillers for 5 years but now I'm happy to say I'm 21 days clean. I'm on Suboxone, I go to IOP 4 times a week and have to hit 3 NA meetings a week. I'm seeing a Psychiatrist and talking to my Counselor. I'm doing everything I should be doing but I'm a little nervous. In 5 years I was clean only once this long and it ended in me using. I keep saying to myself things are different now, I'm more positive, I want it more, I'm telling people my story and I'm not afraid of people knowing about me being an addict. But the addict in me is still figuring out ways to get pills and get high. It's not often but sometimes I get these cravings. So I'm here for support and advice. I would also love to help anyone I can. So please if anyone is out there, I need some support to keep going. I'm hitting a meeting tonight but I need it for when I'm home cause that's when it's the worst. Thanks everybody!
