Lost another breaker in my house. Gonna cost an arm and a leg to fix. Had a good fourth of July though with my family been a pretty quiet month otherwise.

Things are getting a little easier. It's easier to brush off things I have no control over. Thinking about having another child but sometimes it kills me I can't provide all the things my daughter deserves. As a kid some of my favorite memories though are when we didn't have much money. I'm sure it was hell for my parents but before the money came we just spent all of our time together having fun in the living room. After it was all about going out.

But hey if I can't afford to give my daughter the best tutors maybe I can try to be that tutor for her.

A couple weeks ago was the first time I woke up and forgot to the my medicine since I started it. It lasted until the afternoon and my daughter was keeping me busy as I drank copious amounts of coffee but I'm hoping it means something.

This January marks 11 years without a drug that's illegal or wasn't prescribed to me. Still on Suboxone I think that might be just a part of who I am from now on. Not sure how I feel about that but it's hard to imagine a normal life without it which is a scary though for a plethora of reasons.

I'm sorry to hear that. If there's anything I can do to help let me know. The site isn't as active as it used to be but I promise if you post it I will read it and get back to you as soon as I can.

Knit, walk, talk trash on the internet. Personally I watch a crap ton of historical and nature documentaries and when I'm really hard up I'll start a random argument/debate with my friends regarding philosophy or politics.

We have a group text dedicated to my shenanigans. Current topic of interest: "why hasn't there ever been a truly benevolent dictator?"

Closest we got in modern times was Josep Bros Titos but he was responsible for ethnic cleansing. A few monarchs from Asia and South America fit the bill as long as you are willing to overlook human rights violations and literal human sacrifice.

Feel free to steal my ideas. Kidding, I know I'm weird. But it boils down to the fact you'll have to find a hobby or make a kid.

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.
