    The guy who started NA was a IV drug user! So yes there is life after the needle.
    I started running when i was 16 and continued for a long time. Sometimes i just crave to have a stick but then i use some recovery tools and it goes away!!

    Cold turkey always worked best for me....
    its hard to set up a taper plan for an IV user

    Are you ready to quit??
    My clean date is 8-23-04
    if my junkie self can do it you can[88]

    I have never seen a greater miracle or monstor than myself.

    yep, I'm another addict raising their hand....kicked IV drug use....1990.

    I don't even fight that anymore...that craving was removed years ago. Even when I relapsed on pain meds, going back to the needle was not an option.
