It gets easier. It becomes natural. Yes

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

It has gotten easier for me. The anxiety and mood-swings have been greatly attenuated, and goddamn, I love both waking up and going to sleep clear-headed.

I still have so much work to do in my recovery, but I'm no longer white-knuckling it.

I have a doctor's appt on 9 May at the VA to look into both group and individual therapy so that I can start addressing the underlying issues that for so long led me to think that intoxication was a rational response to reality.

Thanks to you, Banji, Anji, and so many others here and elsewhere for y'all's support. What a great bunch of folks!

Cliff's Notes Version:

I'm an addict. Been addicted to opiates for 8ish years. Tramadol was my DOC. I would take an average of 2K mg a day (normal dose is 200mg a day). I used my headaches as an excuse for my addiction. I got fired last month due to lack of performance (I was either stoned or in pain). Totally lost my fucking mind and wrote a suicide-ish-y letter. Took off in my car. Stopped answering my phone. Cops caught up with me in MS. Arrested me or a suspended license ($250 misdemeanor... I forgot to pay a ticket). Spent a night in jail in a straight jacket and padded cell. Got shipped to a psych ward for a week. Then spent 30 days in an inpatient facility. Got out today.

Hi, I'm Jeremy, and I'm an addict.

Hi, I'm Darrell, and I'm an alcoholic. Stay strong, brotha.
Hi I'm Adrian and I'm an alcoholic / addict. Man hugs to both you guys, I don't feel so alone when I hear other peoples experiences.

I broke my 20y nicotine addiction and am fighting it almost on a daily basis.
Yes, you can! Big Grin

Well, that's another item ticked off the bucket list.

Deese I have great respect for that. Both my parent's lives were shortened and in my mom's case the quality of the last 15 years just sucked largely due to cigarettes. You keep on keeping on.
This is in no way to diminish what King and Thump and Adey, Chas and I are doing about substances in our lives. Just a special nod to a great thing. I really hate tobacco and what it did, hated it from about age 6 on. Dad died in my arms at 63 of a massive heart attack. He was never able to quit the damn things.
