Im a little over 30 sober from heroin and keep getting the urge to use. I stopped all by myself and don't do any type of aa or na. Does anyone here know how long I will feel this way? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Look up your areas aa/na perfer na meetings an get yourself a sponsor im six months clean an still have cravings but am working the steps an have a amazing support group
urges are a real B! Can you tell if these are physical urges or more a mental thing? Both can be really strong and can be kicking on you at the same time.
I think its more mental, but the brain is a powerful thing. They sometimes stop me in. my tracks, and I will get chills like I'm dope sick or something. I don't know what to do...
ive heard recovery can be lifelong. i do think the urges will lessen overtime but in all likelihood you will feel cravings for a long, long time. not to depress or bring you down but see if you can find some other productive activity that you can do whenever you feel cravings (like cooking, hiking, biking up a mountain, yoga, etc..)
kudos on the self-detox thats amazing dude
I couldn't agree with you more @katie.baughman Exercise and fitness is a great hobby for me! It just a win-win all the way around
if not exercise and fitness, then perhaps a creative outlet such as drawing, writing, or pottery
