wodin,
hang in there mate,I've battled addiction myself.You've already won by recognising the fact that you've got a problem and you're dealing with it.After that everything else seems easy by comparison.Just remember , you're already clean,the urges you get are just the death throes of a drug saying I want more.Spit in it's face, smile and say "aha you bastard! I've already beaten you,what you've got is nothing!" You've already beaten it,Doesn't it feel awesome to be free!!

4th day and still going strong. Today is the first day without any meds to help (methadone).

Felt abit shakey this morning but feel a little better now.

No real cravings so far. I keep my family and you lot and all those men and women who have died in the wars. Inlcuding my great unlce Dominic Costa who died in WW1. Something I've just found out about. HE also won the MM. Strangly enough my Grandads dad buried him as they both swerved in the 1/7th Bn Kings Liverpool Regiment. So in effect his (My Grandads) dad buried his future wifes (My Nana) dad's brother, before they were born!

A MM in the Family!You must be proud.If you contact the Army Museum in Chelsea or the PRO they maybe able to get more info,such as the citation for the award.Also the regimental War diaries may also be helpful in getting further info.You need to find out which regiment the Liverpools now fall under as they were disbanded after being amalgamated into the Manchesters in 1958.The regiment has a long history,formed in 1685,making it one of the oldest.i think he served in the 17th not the 1/7th as there was no 7th Bn.However a 7th was formed in the 1930's but then joined the Royal Tank regt. As of 2006, it forms "A" Company, in the 4th Battalion of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.Ill have a trawl to see if i can find ny more info re the MM.Can you PM me his full name and if poss his service number?

I feel sure Wodin will let us know, when he wants to.

Anyway, I hope it's going OK for you, Wodin, but please make sure you get back to the forum, whichever way it's turning out.

Cheers,   Martin

In a related sense, be patient with yourself. Having been an industrial drinker for many years, I know the desire to get clean and sober.
You'll enjoy the differences and enjoy every day too. Even the tough ones.
Funny how this works. I was jumping around the site all PO'd at my sophomoric attempts at these games...and...You gave me a message as to what's important. Thanks friend. Consider a thought and a prayer going your way.

Hey Wodin, one of the things that has gotten me through some tough times is a speach that Winston Churchill gave to a graduating University class sometime after he was out of office. It just consisted of three words repeated three times.

"Never give up, Never Give up, Never give up!"

Anytime I thought about chucking it, those words would ring out in my head. They kept me going. Others have beaten this problem, so can you!
