Tried to stop several times, not working

Hi, I have been on lortab for the last 3 years.  I have attempted to quit several times.  I make it through the physical withdrawals which are tough.  My legs really hurt and it feels like a sprained groin muscle.  Is this normal? The reason I went on the them was because of back surgery.
The psychological withdrawal is the worst.  I get depressed and can't stop crying.  This is what has me go back.  Any suggestions on how to get through the psychological withdrawal?  I can;t keep doing this.

Have you started any kind of aftercare?  And no, I don't think the groin thing is associated with WD.  I'd ask a doc if it's bothering you really bad.  

Check out a meeting or look for a therapist or pastor you can talk to.  It will do you a world of good!
