Hey friend, I'm trying to stop taking pain meds. I've read your post and was wondering how you are dealing with the pain. I'm ashamed to say that I gave in after two days. I have been keeping myself busy. Trying not to think about it. Setting short term goals. But a friend came to see me tonight at work and had some meds in him from a recent car accident. I told him no at first. Then he said he wasn't going to charge me and have me three. I didn't even think about it. They were in me so fast. I felt like screaming. Now, I'm still at work and it feels normal. I'm more talkative, I'm working harder than usual. Feels good. But I'm screaming inside. I'm not sure what to do now. I miss my old self. I used to be so active. Working out every day. Eating healthy. Spending time with family and friends. Life was good. Every since I broke my hand years ago, I've been on these pills off and on since. But lately it's been worse. I find myself searching for them. I even went to the urgent care and faked an injury to get pain meds. That's sad isn't it?? I've spent so much money on these things. I really thought after two days I would be ok. But the more I read about detox, withdraws and PAWS, the scarier it gets for me.
For withdrawing you need to detox under medical supervision.That's the safest and best way to quit.A 21 day program wont work unless you really have sober family to go to after graduating from a rehab.I been to so many treatment centers and hospitals for detox from both alcohol and pain killers.My last round of partying almost killed me,so even 2 yrs ago after graduating again from a center here in NY,i went and moved in with my parents.I was 37 now i'll be 39 in Nov.I moved with them cause they don't even take asprin.Talk about clean.If i had of left that center and went back to my apt where i was surrounded by pain killers ranging from Vicodin 10's to fentanyl patches and a pocket full of money with the liquor store down the street,i'd be dead.
