The 60 day challange "reloaded"

278 posts in this topic

From the makers of "The 30 Day Challenge, " lol..

I present to you, "The 60 Day Challenge!!" This idea is the brainchild of myself (Freedom's Wings) and a good friend who goes by the name of Lunax on this Site.

 

The format is simple, as it is merely a continuation of "The 30 Day Challenge!!" The 60 day challenge is designed just as the 30 day to keep those taking it mindful and accountable, while feeling supported, on a daily basis, along the road to recovery.

 

This challenge does not take away from the 30 day, instead it makes room for more people to join the fitting "category," while we continue to check in with and support each other.

 

If this in any shape or form resonates with you, do not be shy, feel free to create your own version of this same challenge or won't you join us right here in taking "THE 60 DAY CHALLENGE!"

 

Here are the easy to follow guidelines:

 

-Daily (preferably) log into this site, this forum, and simply "CONFIRM" or "DeNY" your ability to abstain from adderall for that day.

 

Ex: Day 39: Confirmed!

 

See..Easy as pie. Lol. Well for now I will leave you this, "What matters most is not how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up! "

 

Also, for those entering this second leg of the journey, you may have begun to develop a few new "healthy habits," feel free to list those here, eg., diet, supplement tips, or maybe a new workout plan.

 

Til next time, If not good, may you be Well!

Thanks lovely FW! I feel so lonely at the "60 day challange." Everyone is either past or will hopefully be here soon!

 

I wasn't able to get on here yesterday. I was kinda having an off day, I didn't use or anything. I was just super sleepy and didn't get to work out or anything... I did today though. I've been really sleepy this week, IDK if it's because I went so hard last week (at working out, pushing myself, etc.) or because I've been sleeping 12 hours a night - which I know is really bad. Sleeping too much is just as bad as sleeping too little but I feel like I'm literally catching up on 7 years of lost sleep here.

 

Day: 34 & 35: done and done, yay! And I got yoga in today :)

 

TFIG, hope EVERYONE has an AMAZING weekend!!!!

Sweetcarolinee I can't remember exactly what thread you posted it on or exactly how you said it. (My memory is awful - not sure if is because of adderall or my age or the combination) ANYWAY... while I am thinking about it before I forget I have been meaning to tell you- that you gave an illustration about being on adderall was like living in a snow globe. And WOW I thought, for myself, that was an excellent way to describe/think/visualize it. again I will have to go find exactly how you said it etc. But just wanted you to know that I really connected and could relate to that and thanks for sharing.

Hey guys!

 

Holy smokes... I haven't been on here in a few days (since Thurs.) and it has sucked. I've missed you all, I've been so busy working on art and the Etsy shop and yoga but good news...

 

Day 42, 43, 44, & 45: CHECK!!!

 

It's harder without it but better and I'm happier!

 

Thanks for all the support, you guys are the greatest :D Hope everyone is doing well!

You are doing a wonderful job at quitting and making a new life for youself, SweetC.

 

I just realized it, but I love your signature quotes. I'd follow Churchhill and Rumi anywhere.

SweetCarolinee - now that you are through 3/4 of 60 days, have you looked back at your journey and found some amazingly subtle transformations in your life?  If you haven't taken the time; you should.  I bet you will find some real gems.
