The gym has been a savior for me in this 8 day withdrawal. I have gone 7 out of 8 days and afterwards I feel amazing. I mean, I used to be a gym rat until a little over a year ago when the only things I wanted to do was use painkillers and work. I still worked VERY HARD, and then after, I would enjoy my opiates. Well, what once was a lean, strong, guy, is now the most out of shape I have ever been. I still look okay, but no where near what I was.
Today I did NOT want to go to the gym. I was very depressed today and anxious (anyone have any ideas how long that will last, btw?) and I just wanted to lay down and honestly cry, but I MADE myself go and after a couple mile run and 30 minutes of weights, I feel good again!
