    Yes I agree that I have put my husband through hell. My son has no idea what is going on, I have never done it when he was any where around, nor have I been around him when I was under the influence. My husband & I do not argue around my child and we are doing everything we can do make our marriage work for him and us. I have been clean for 3 weeks now and so far do not have the urge for it. I did coke every day for 2 years and walked away from it one day & have not touched it since (its been 9 years now). So lets hope that walking away from smoking it wont be as hard. Its been 3 weeks and no desire to touch it.

    That’s what you wrote on 4/15, and today (10 days later) you say:

    Sounds like 13 days to me. Good job, but I think you still ought to give NA meetings a shot. Our literature talks about how many of us were able to stop using for periods of time…and began to think we were ok…we were too busy looking at the stopping instead of the using. NA and the 12 Steps are my best defense against relapse.

    It is scary and intimidating but the best thing is you Don’t have to fight this alone. You already completed the first step you “admitted you were powerless over your addiction” the seems like it is so simple, but guess what you Sid the HARDEST part already, NA and AA as well are a great place and way to meet and connect with others who can support you. It is ok to be fearful, we alllll were, so just remember you are not alone, and we are here when you are ready to share with us your experiences , strengths , and hopes. 🙂
