I am a brand new recovering addict... the last time I took a vicoden was last Friday. I am one week clean!!! I went to a suboxone doctor yesterday and have been started on that and already I am feeling 100% better. I have been an addict, addicted to pain pills for about the past 4+ years, it started by me taking them here and there cause I liked the energy that they gave me, I started on Lorecet and Vicoden, and then of course I graduated all the way up to oxycontin. When I realized way into using that I could not go without the drugs to get through a day, I knew I had a problem, I tried like hell to stop on my own, but was never successfull. I have seeked treatment now, I have joined a couple of online support groups and I am attending NA meetings in my area. I am 35, married and have 2 beautiful boys... I realized that I was on a path of self descrution and that if I did not stop I would loose my family!!! I am going to need alot of support, so I hope I can find some new friends on here. I wish all of you the best that are going through this, and hopefully together we can beat this thing!!!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
