    I know a bunch, Sammy. Just like any addiction, though, there’s one requirement: ya gotta want it more than anything.

    Peace & Love,

    I have taken in lot’s o’chit never injected but, I know people who have gotten clean> There are people here who have gotten clean after having used spikes (as they were called years ago). You can do anything you really want to do. You are the one in control of you. If you can’t do it on your own then get someone to help you through or, go to inpatient rehab if you really want to be clean. Just do what it will take. lot’s of prayer going out for you.

    I have been totally clean & sober since 8/23/97. IV drugs, anything at all….mainly heroin IV was my drug of choice.

    Gotta get sick & tired of being sick & tired ENOUGH to become willing to do whatever it takes to NOT use or drink.

    Sammy, I was an IV user (Oxycontin and heroin were my DOC) and I am just coming up to 100 days now. I can’t say that I have been successful (I am so hard on myself) but I have been totally clean and sober since then and that’s a miracle for me. This is my fourth try too.

    In my area, there are a great many NA members who have extensive years (15 or more) clean and they were IV heroin addicts. My first sponsor was a heroin addict (IV) and he’s still clean with 16 years under his belt. Recovery is possible for anyone… regardless of DOC. I’m sure meeting someone in recovery that has been “successful” at staying clean from the same drug you used could help you identify and give you hope, but please be aware that the drugs we used (and/or different combinations of them) isn’t what hinders us from recovery. Recovery begins with a desire to stop using and we follow up that desire with honesty, open-mindedness and a willingness to try what works for others. Focusing on our differences won’t help.

    My sister is 5 years clean and was heavy IV user (Heroin) and also abused OxyC. She relapsed just once after her first rehab, and went again that time staying 90 days. Her sponsor has 18 years off IV Heroin!
    There were many times I didn’t think my sister wouldn’t recover (3 OD’s, 2 resussitations) But she has made ENOURMOUS changes in her life.
