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!

Day 6 and my First STRONG temptation to give it up-It’s the weekend-no work tomorrow.You’ve gotten past withdrawal. Two days and then back to it.Need some prayers and strength right now cause i’ve got more justifications right now than I have will power.
Day 5 has not been bad. I know I’m a LONG way off, but for some of you that have some months and years under your belt- how long before you stop thinking about it? I spent so long planning on where to get it, where to hide it, how to pitch the bottles etc.Just wondering. And thanks for the supporting comments. It might be silly but it helps.
