Online Recovery Meetings and Chat / Re: boredom

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.

I know this is an old post, but I really need help "starting over", too.  I am wondering how the posters on this thread are doing.  I could really use some posters to talk to about how to NOT relapse.  I've only been able to go a few days clean then I relapse and use again.  Its only for one day, but I know I need to quit permanently.
Any help would be appreciated!

I know this is an old post, but I was just wondering how the original poster was doing.
Recovery REALLY is on a day by day basis.  I am now learning that.
Anyway, I hope the poster is doing well in recovery.

Thanks for you honest post.  I can relate to what you say about loving to use.  I deal with that almost every day.  I love using, too. 
You did say in your post that you were clean for 10 years and that life was great, so you have that to look forward to-You had a great life when you were clean, and you will have a great life again when you are clean! 
I hope you and your wife are able to work things out, but you will be great either way.
Please post again and let us know how you are doing.

Introductions and Celebrations! / New to NA but not 12 steps

Hey there my name is Joshua. I'm an active member of AA, but I've never been to an NA meeting. My drugs of choice besides alcohol were cocaine, and prescription pills that gave me the same feeling. I was prescribed adhd medication in the past, but it was all recreational use the past few years. I used hallucinogenic drugs like mushrooms, lsd, and even dmt. I never had an interest in heroin or opioids in general. Needles still scare me. My nose was my portal. Alcohol told me it was okay to use. I don't have time to add more now so I'm starting with this to open up to the community. Would love to get some contacts who know my drugs, thanks!
