Trusting Your Gut—Stop Taking Drugs Today

Trusting your gut is about taking action. I have a feeling I shouldn’t take drugs today. Later you hear about a friend who overdosed and died. Your gut says it’s time to get help, you, too could die. Trusting your gut is following the course of what you feel towards a situation in which you are involved, whether right or wrong, good or bad. It is when you trust whether something will be of benefit to or you not. All the big and little insights you’ve garnered through your drug life are stored up in your unconscious mind and body. This pool strengthens your ability to trust your gut. If your gut reactions haven’t boded well beforehand, you can begin to strengthen them starting today.

The toxic chemicals your body accumulates from drugs trick your mind into thinking you can’t do without your drugs today. The truth lies way down in the depths of your unconscious mind and body memories. Can your muster all your strength and resist the temptation to swallow those pills for one minute? Deciding to not take drugs today may be easy to consider, but hard to do. Your gut says you want to live. Your gut says these pills may have too much fentanyl in them and you could overdose. Let your body remember how it felt before you took drugs.

Take a breath and try to wait one minute before taking the drugs. Now wait five minutes. Perhaps you’re scared of withdrawal. Keep resisting the temptation, breathe and wait another five minutes. Think about the rest of your life. Is this really how you want to live? Your gut says NO! Your gut says to go to a clinic and get help. It says you can locate the number and call narcotics anonymous (NA) and find out where there’s a meeting. It’s a step.
