  1. Inspirational Music Florance & the Machine "shake it off" - "I tried to dance with the devil on your back. And given half the chance would I take any of it back It's a final mess but it's left me so empty It's always darkest before the dawn" - " And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my road And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope It's a shot in the dark and right at my throat 'Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me Looking for heaven, for the devil in me Well what the hell I'm gonna let it happen to me." - "And I've been a fool and I've been blind I can never leave the past behind I can see no way, I can see no way I'm always dragging that horse around Our love is pastured such a mournful sound Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground So I like to keep my issues strong But it's always darkest before the dawn" Apparently it was written about a hangover. Pretty deep hangover! Also, "The dog days are over" is also a great rehab song.
  2. Found an old pill

    Liltex you are amazing. That play the tape forward thing is the prospective I needed to get me through today. Thanks so much
  3. Omg! Thanks so much for this post. I've read it 3 times and it gave me motivation to go for a run yesterday. I loved the "weird adderall projects" part. Lol, I totally know what u mean.
  4. So done!

    I just got rid of my remaining pills and went cold turkey. To me, tapering of would just delayed the inevitable and I wanted to start on my recovery asap. 4 days after I quit I made an appt with my doctor and told her I didn't ever want to be prescribed this medication or anything similar ever again. I confessed to her the side effects I was experiencing, which I had always kept secret from her. 2 weeks into recovery I ripped up my remaining scripts. Now I have no choice but to live adderall free. It's been a little over a month and I've never been happier. The storm in my brain is finally over. My motivation is still non existent, but everyday it gets a little better. I'll take peace and happiness over false motivation anyway.
  5. I also find myself reading more now that I've been off it for 1 month and 2 days. Like you, I didn't think I would be able to read or write anything off it. Now my brain craves reading, it has been a great tool for my recovery. But you have to find it inside you to start. Like I read in a previous article, you won't "feel like it" at first.
