not sure i can do this

Okay so for the last six months i have been prescribed so much lortab its crazy, Altough i had them for real pain i must admit, I took them even when i wasnt in pain not all day everyday but  most days. I had surgery on March 7th and was on lortab and oxycottin, Oxys for the 1st 24 hours lortabs up till yesterday evening, when i no longer felt i was in pain and needed them. I woke up this morning puking and body aches omg are horrible, I dont feel a mental pull to take one but my physical pain is driving me to want to take one i have 5 left, I have went all day without one though, how long does it take to detox from lortab use on and off for only 6 months, I quit cold turkey, dont wanna take anything else either! thanks
