How long have you been sober? - January 1st 2018, 03:39 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of substance use, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

this thread existed a while ago and i believe it was very important for me and other users to have this and while i am currently not in active recovery, i do have a substance abuse helper and i am trying a lot to get my life back on track so i think this thread would help a lot of people and also myself.

so i am 5 days clean off of benzodiazepines and sadly 0 days off of opioids.

I'm glad you brought this thread back!

It's been 14 days since I last got drunk AND since the last time I smoked a cigarette.

foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Thanks for bringing this thread back, Eden!

It has been eight days since I got drunk and six months since I've smoked pot. Not counting vapors.

So sorry you're going through this hell Eden. I used to get pissed that people didn't understand what it's like, but lately I've learned to be grateful that they don't...I just registered with teenhelp today, but I'm In my 2nd year of the recovery experience from opioids and benzos, but I use marijuana to manage seizures and PTSD. So depending on who you ask, either a little over two years or less than one hour. Stay strong Eden. If nobody told you that they love you today, I got you.

thank you a lot for your input. i also got your PM and i am glad people like you exist. i've had a bad day and found out a friend tried to kill himself last night so i didn't exactly try to stay sober either, but thank you so much for all the support from you, i've been really needing it.

so as of today i am 2 days sober off of benzos but sadly 0 days of opioids.

I'm not the type to abuse drugs or drink.

I do drink for the right reasons.

Yesterday I drank for the wrong reasons to suppress painful emotions.

I guess one day sober from emotional/situational alcohol.
