I am new here too.  Still trying to find my way around the site.  I am trying to stay clean off of heroin-snorting, no needles.  It has been a complete struggle for me.  I haven't gone a week without using at least once during the week. 
I am on suboxone, which may be "cheating", but I know enough about myself to know that I have to take this recovery very slow, and get my life back on track before I even think about going completely clean. 
Every week I start off great...I am determined NOT to use-to finally complete one week of non use.  However, the urge to use comes on so strong that it almost drives me crazy.  I now know the importance of attending meetings and I am going to my first one this week.  I just don't know how to deal with that nasty urge to use that keeps popping up.
I am 52 years old, have a great job, never married and no children.  I know this sounds kind of cheesy, but I have serious issues about never being married and no children.  I feel like such a loser and its the main reason why I started using in the first place.  I haven't found a way to clear away this junk thinking and get on with my life.  I am hoping this site can supplement in person meetings and be a place I can post when I feel the strong urge to use.
