Way to go Greentires4me. That's awesome.


I had IOP today and it was really good. I'm learning a lot about myself. I really got lucky when I found this program.


Then I went to acupuncture and had a relaxing hour just sitting meditating listening to calming music.

I'm feeling better than when I wrote my last post.

Then I drank one glass of jack daniels and coke. I shouldn't have because it makes me feel like I took a benzo and it ruins my cognition.

I forget what meth feels like but I know cognition is better than sober.

I notice PAWS for me happens after 3 months sober. I used to take a psychedelic every 2-3 months because that's when I would forget what the psychedelic feels like.

I'm extremely sure that the 2-3 month time setting of psychedelics and PAWS are related.

I'm on day 27 sober. My last attempt last September ended at day 30 but there were numerous other factors that doomed me before I even started. Back then, I was only going to stop drinking for 6 months so I could get my control back. Blah, blah, blah....the same old crap we tell ourselves before we stop the ********. I was even smoking weed still and, uh hm, some other things. That's all the past now. No booze, no weed, no coke, no nothing.



All that is gone now. I feel better than I ever remember feeling. The Lamictal is working great for me so that's a big part of it sure. But I never realized how bad the alcohol was messing me up. I was high and drunk for so many, many years that sobriety is like a new drug, if you know what I mean. I have taken those chemicals of the table for the rest of my life. They are no longer an option at all. I've also vowed to not miss that crap at all as well but to appreciate not being in a chemical fog from now on. It's made the biggest difference. The cravings are almost non-existent now.

Current meds : Lamictal 100 mg, more coming soon I'm sure, other meds for non-MI issues like Pramipexole for RLS but it's probably doing more for my mood I don't know about

Lamictal is a big part of my recovery also. I am on day 353. It is a lot easier without so much depression that I wanted to escape from. kind of miss the hypomania sometimes; I tended to get the happy puppy kind, though sometimes I was an arrogant jackass and I would argue with people on the internet all night about subjects I had just become an expert on days earlier.

Is there a different hospital you could go to?

There is in the next city over, but I can't drive right now and nobody cares enough to take me.
