You went from 30 to 3. That sounds too rapid. Do you have more pills so you can wean yourself off slower?

dwb2k,
I know it is hard to have hope when you are so far in the depths of addiction. There really is only one way to attack this problem and that is one little (painful, yes) step at a time. Today your little step is to give your self BIG props for coming clean to your doctor. Wow. Good job. Now you need a plan. One that works for you. If it is tapering or not, you need to figure it out. Come up with some options, post them here and ask for comments. We all can help you with what small step to take next....
You are not alone. You are worth doing this. Seriously, man.
hugs, Lindsay

I'm so sorry you are having to go through this but you are not alone, not here. I just started coming here and am getting ready to go through what you are now. I have felt so much support from all the people here. Keep posting and reading. There is some great stuff on the link above that says Health Pages. Very motivational and informative. Hang in there, there is life on the other side of this. WE can do this and WE are here with you!

Kolt: Coolness. I remember feeling really really cruddy for days on end. No motivation and like you described it, I felt "shut down."  I don't understand why I tried so hard to fight the sickness and apathy from withdrawal. I guess I didn't think it would EVER end, so I reasoned that I may as well forget about trying to detox. I could either finish detoxing or die.  (big fat lie) I had many other good excuses not to stick with it. But I did. And it does get better and you really really deserve a better life.
