So when do I stop celebrating ? After 2 years I guess. I can say I feel better, but the 30 lbs I gained after detoxing is sure to impact my health. My opiate addiction has changed me, I can’t put a finger on it, but I’m not quite the guy I was when I started taking them regularly in May of ’05. At times I seem to think super clearly and act decisively, but there are times that I’m a little overwhelmed and wishy washy something I never was before or during my addiction.Still I would never go back to taking 20-30 pills a day and the constant quest to find more ! My pain levels have improved. my sex drive is back with a vengeance. I am saving a ton of money.The life of an active addict is not really a life even though you feel great, can be more physically active and function at a high level there is a cloud or haze that surrounds you and your positive feelings don’t seem genuine. Recovery has its ups and downs, but I am proud of what I’ve done and will never ever go back ! Good luck to all who are trying to become opiate free !
