I did it, so can you
Hi, I dont know if this will help anyone but I am clean and sober after 10 years of heavy opiate abuse. I am 44 years old. The message I want to send is that you can do it, but you really need to want to be clean. If you are doing it because you are afraid of losing a job, a spouse, your freedom, sadly this may not be enough. For me, it was about wanting to get out from under the weight of the drugs for myself. So I wouldnt have to live with the daily worry and stress of considering my stash level or worrying about finding it if I was out. It isn't fun, and you can't be happy when you are concerend about your future buzz even when you have a good one going.
I have been sober for 4 years now, and I dont even think about it unless I find myself around those folks I used to party with or get it from. Obviously I make sure to steer clear of those folks.
I was sick and had incredibly low energy for about 3 months during my detox, but I got through it and so can you. It is hard, but not if you really want it. Good luck!
