    If it helps, I think the result of continuing down that road is MUCH MUCH scarier...

    Hey Clint, you are demonstrating true courage on more than one level right now. We've all made some bad choices in our lives - ALL of us. Not too many have to wherewithall to come clean like you did, though.

    Stick to the road you have now chosen - it leads much farther and is far smoother than the one you were on. It's just the entrance ramp that's a bit bumpy.

    Yep. Guilty as charged [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] . Takes a lot of courage to face up to a bad choice and take responsibility for it. It will take more of that courage and all your determination and the support of your family and friends to help you through this. It won't be easy. Don't try to do it by yourself. That's why we have family and friends. To give us strength and support through our trials in life.

    Hang in there JLAP ! Someone very close to my wife and I went through this and made it. It takes Prayer and Faith and Friends ! New friends to hang with and different things to do to keep your mind busy. Hang in there, we will pray for you too !

    Yup...no denying recovery is a tough road to walk. As hard as it is and as much as you DON'T want to do it, not doing this will bring you more grief in the future than you can imagine. To continue on the path of an addict will spell disaster sooner or later. There's never a happy outcome...

    That's great that you are doing this. Time will make it better so hang through this sucky part. I think if you talk to any ex-addict, they'll tell you its the best thing they ever did for THEMSELVES.

    Good luck and keep us updated. We are all behind you! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    You've been a very positive force in these forums and I hope things work out. You've already cleared the most difficult hurdles--admitting to yourself and others that something was wrong and taking real steps to getting better. It takes a lot of courage and maturity to do these things and I wish you all the best. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't know what I could add that others haven't already said. Having had a similar problem and now clean over 5 years I can tell you that getting a sponsor and following his suggestions has helped me immensely. Don't believe the lie the drug is telling you - One more time only leads to one more time and one more time that could be your LAST time. Sorry if I sound too preachy. NA is a good place to be. It takes time and it gets better. Feel free to contact me privately if you wish.

    Don't quit before the miracle happens.
