Forum: Recovery Forum

Discussion group for those recovering from substance abuse. This is the place to talk about your struggles and success in regards to addiction.

  1. A thread of whining and self pity

    Apologies first to Ahso for hijacking his thread and to 4part for hijacking his undoubtedly very difficult admission of Bipolar. My post was a totally inappropriate reaction to that post, induced by a strong and honest emotional sympathetic reaction to his admission but nonetheless totally...

  2. Disease?

    If a person is being poisoned slowly or poisoning themselves with say arsenic slowly, would we call that a disease or say that the internal organs that the poison is affecting are diseased? Or might we say that, since the skin is now recognized as an organ, that a skin burn is a disease? If...

  4. Testimonials

    I'm not sure if there are any other recovering people here, but I'd been asked a while back if I'd post my own story, so I will, in the next post. It's an abbreviated version, because I'm choosing to leave out some things, but the highlights are there. Still long though, so I apologize for that. I...

  6. The Line

    This was a good question from the Recovery Forums intro thread. Thought it deserved a thread of its own.

  7. Bi polar Disorder

    My sister suffers from this in my opinion and although she has never been clinically diagnosed, this is what I assume. Anyway, she lost her fourth nursing job in as many months and this morning I found out that she has stolen the checking acct number from our mother (who draws social security) to...

    Maybe management will sticky or pin (however it's termed here) this thread? This is a thread where members may get their offenses voiced without derailing other threads. Just air it out all you like, within the rules of course. Link the associated thread in your post if you like so...

  11. Addictive Personalities

    I've heard of the term "addictive personality" and my x-husband had addictions he could never overcome. He'd get addicted to everything. Not just drugs either. He'd go overboard with everything. I recently left a man who was a recovered addict and x-drug abuser. But he literally replaced his drug...

  13. My Sister

    Shes going to lose everything. Her husband, the kids, the house, everything. 4 yrs ago when I found an empty Oxycontin bottle on the beach near her boat I talked to her about it but the denial was mind blowing and overwhelming. Her husband told me to butt out, I think she intimidates him. So he...

  16. Substance Dependence

Anyway, what I'm providing is a summary of the diagnostic criteria for both substance dependence and substance...

  18. Denial

    I know a few people still in the denial phase. It goes like this: "I can stop any time I want." One particular friend has a problem with both alcohol and cocaine. He doesn't talk much to me anymore because he knows I don't tolerate cocaine use. The first trick was to try and get me to do it...
