I am attempting to be a recovered addict...but right now I just am one. I am only one day clean, but hope that I can be as clean as some of you ladies soon enough. I work in a pharmacy where it is quite easy to swipe an entire bottle of pills off the shelf without anyone evening notticing. In the last week I've stolen 3. Today I quit my job. I can't do this anymore. I don't want it, I don't need it. I tried this a month or so ago and I already caved 30 days later.  I need advice. Please tell me where you got help and how. I have a 9 month old baby boy who I want to see grow into a strong young who will have not known any of this. Please....I just need help or guidance.

IHello my name is Misty and I feel you, I would suggest you find a local meeting and you'll  find  that you are not alone. I want to wish you much luck and let you know that I will keep you in my prayers. I also do a lot of praying. I know a guy that is in recovery with 12 years clean and he is a pharmacist I hope I spelled that right, any way don't give up you can do this thing, I'll have 6 mths clean in 10 days this is not my first try at this recovery thing and I'm not about to give up yet  in fact I feel better today than I ever have. There is one thing I was told to remember and that is that we have to do it one day at a time. I think in my earliest recovery there were times when I had to take it one minute at a time and that's ok. Good luck girl and if you ever need to talk with someone message me.  Happy Mothers Day too!!!!

Thank you so much. I've called an addiction center and meet later this week. So far I am 4 days clean but now my biggest fear is the thought of the pharmacy finding out that I was stealing. I confessed to my boss that I was an addict and that was my reason for leaving, he asked if I stole and I lied and said no. What a mess I've gotten into. Hopefully being out of the pharmacy I'll be able to give this a better shot. Thank you for your kind words and I hope you had a Happy Mothers Day as well!
