day 5 off of oxy/hydro
Hello everyone. I'm on day 5 from 60mg oxy/hydro mix. Stopped the Valium Sunday, so day 3 CLEAN from all
mood-altering chemicals. I feel ok. Lack of sleep is the biggie for me at this point. I don't sleep until about 7am and then basically pass out from exhaustion, for an hour or so, then I start my day. I've been following pretty closely the Thomas Recipe, although I did stop the Valium early, because I'm an addict and didn't want to extend this W/D process. I think the amino acids have been helping, at least I can function somewhat during the day. I've been going to 2 meetings a day. Today I have to do some work which means using my brain and writing again...UGH! I'm still
pretty scrambled up so I need to pray and ask for help with this. Lots of water, LOTS of time in the bathroom, etc.
Thanks to ALL who post here. It's been a Godsend reading everyone else's experiences with detox and w/d's. It's helped to know that what I'm going through is what we all go through to get to the other side...back to life and living again. Even this temporary w/d pain is better than the hopelessness and daily misery of using. I'll keep updating as to how I'm doing as the days go by. Something I heard in an NA meeting, funny, but I can relate..."Die mother-****** die but don't use!"  NA is a trip! They LOVE the newbies...I mean they make it so easy to be there. Even though the f-bombs are flying, while I'm there I'm at peace and know I won't use just for today. I've met a couple of guys who have similar stories to my own...I didn't go to jail, or lose my house or car or kids, but I did lose myself.
I've calling people when I feel shaky, and praying a lot.
