Hello I am new to all this and I don't know where to start. I have become dependent on norcos. I was prescribed them a couple of years ago for a back injury. Well those came and went. I soon found myself taking them when I didn't have pain. It started with one at a time, then two, them three... I am so ashamed of myself. Every time I try to quit I can't. I have even turned to buying them off the streets. I can't believe that I do this. I am risking everything for stupid pills. I am getting ready to graduate school and be an RN, and I am risking everything just to feel normal. I have tried to cut back, but it seems if I have them I will take them. The problem is that I cannot take any time off as I am at work or school everyday so I am scared of withdrawals. I want to quit so bad that I finally told my live in boyfriend about my problem. His response was to leave. I feel like such a failure and I just want to stop. I have heard other people take about different drugs to stop, and honestly I don't want to do that because I don't want to become dependent on another substance. If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it.
