Day 5 and feeling positive

Okay, I know it's not much but I have managed to maintain my 40% taper for the past 5 days.  I feel pretty good However, I have woke up with headaches for the past 2 days along with the RLS.  I beleive I will try to lower my dose again Monday.  I want ot Thank eveyone for their positive words and support.  I really want to kick this UGLY habit and never take another Lortab again..

It all started with that one pill and it grew out of control.. I will Not allow a pill to have control of my life NO longer.. I have a bright future ahead of me and I am takeing my life back. God I pray that it is real soon that my body and mind taper down AGAIN and still do my daily activities.. Thanks Again everyone! xoxo

Good job and I know it's hard!  If I can just make a suggestion here: drop by small amounts...you've had some symptoms and it's related to that big drop, I think.

Good luck going forwaed! It's not a race and everything you do and every time you taper down, it's a positive step! It doesn't have to be fast though...

Keep in touch here...
