  • Wife Planning to do Xanax for Birthday - HELP

    Hey everyone, miss me? So I have a problem, my wife has been in recovery with me and we both still smoke. But that's all we do anymore. But I'm really upset because the other day she told me that she is planning to use Xanax on her birthday which is a week from now. I think they call that a reservation?

    I have been begging her not to use the spot no matter what I say, she tells me that she is not going to become addicted but that she just wants to use one or two pills birthday. What can I do? How can I stop her? You've already thought about this and she's been screaming and cursing at me when I tell her that I'm not gonna let her do it.

    I'm honestly at a loss I don't know what to do

    Please help?!?!

    CR,

    I'm sorry for what you are going through. I know it's probably exceptionally difficult to hear that your wife wants to use and is actually planning a reservation to do so on her birthday. I also know just how much a significant other's addiction can impact and have affect on your own. My first question is, how are you doing in your own recovery?

    ​Regarding your wife, the sad reality is, there's nothing you can really do to stop her. Sure, you can try to be around her 24/7 or physically stop her for a day or two, but sooner or later, she is going to find a way to get out without you. She may even try to convince you that the urge/craving has passed and then next time she's out, she'll get the pills. Of course, this is a slippery slope for her but she has to make the decision for herself. The best thing you can do is try to encourage her not to and remind her just how far she's come along in her recovery. Maybe even take her out on a nice, fancy date to remind her what fun, sober life looks like apart from drugs. Remind her of the "finer things in life" which drugs often takes away.

    ​Now, it sounds like she has a reservation to do Xanax on her birthday. But I suspect you are concerned that she might continue on in active addiction after that? Of course, this is a risk she will be taking if she uses. It is her choice to use on her birthday and it's her choice as to whether or not she is going to continue after that. The problem is, once she tastes the "sweet addiction", the urges may become stronger and make using even more compelling. However, if it's only about her special day, then she might stop. Unfortunately, there's no way to know for sure.

    ​Like I said, the best thing you can do is keep going strong in your recovery, encourage her not to do it, pray and encourage her to visit us here. Maybe we can help encourage her not to.

    Please keep us posted.

    Peace and Love,

      If she is in recovery I assume she's an addict like me. If She's an addict like me then it's best she just stay clean because 1 of anything is never enough for us addicts.
      ODAAT is best way. Works for me!!

        Ste56jus,

        Welcome to our heroin addiction and recovery discussion forum community. Thanks for your comment. I agree that it's better to stay clean and away from all substances if you are an addict.

        I'm not familiar ODAAT, I assume that's an acronym for something? I encourage you to introduce yourself and sharing your addiction and recovery story by starting your own topic. I look forward to your ongoing participation.

        Peace and Love,

            Ste56,

            Oh yes that makes sense. One day at a time. I'm usually pretty good at figuring out the acronyms but I couldn't figure that one out. I encourage you to start their own topic to introduce yourself and share more about what you've been through.

            Peace and love,

              The guarantee of the paper, which is one of the goals of Ph.D. students, the production and presentation of ISI articles and its publication is fully guaranteed in reputable journals and well-known and well-known journals in the world. As a result, most high-level students are not able to publish their text or article in publications due to lack of confidence in active institutions in the field of scientific presentation and inadequate recognition of valid and non-validated journals.
              چاپ مقاله

              The guarantee is printed in the isi center group

              Printing is a guarantee of the most important services of the isi center. The group has been able to produce more than 1000 isi articles for PhD students and publish in prestigious journals.

              According to most people, publishing scientific articles such as isi, jcr and isc is a very timely and very difficult task. But contrary to the students' thinking, with the observance and principles of writing the article, the guaranteed printing of the article is possible through the publication of scientific articles that the isi organization group, one of these systems, is possible.
              چاپ مقاله زمانی برای یک مجله اهمیت دارد که دارای ضریب تاثیر باشد و نمایه های خوب چاپ مقاله و فرایند داوری با ارزشمندی داشته باشد.

                One of the biggest misconceptions amongst drug abusers and addicts is that their actions affect no one other than themselves. While drug addiction does affect the user both physically and mentally, family members and friends are also deeply affected by the addict.

                It can cause mental and physical strain on family members and create a hostile home environment as well. It does not matter if the individual’s drug of choice is a narcotic, street drug, alcohol or even a prescription drug like Xanax, there is effects on everyone around the addict.

                Xanax is a medication prescribed by a doctor that is used to treat anxiety and other panic disorders. Generally, a doctor will recommend that a patient only take the medication intermittently or for a short period of time. However, some patients opt to use it on a regular basis. If an individual’s condition requires more frequent use a doctor will recommend such treatment.

                  Xanax is very different than others meds like for example the ones on this website. It can be very addictive, so please be careful with it.
