The only way to stop is to stop. All it takes is commitment and pure willingness from you. The total desire to stop using... And you absolutely will stop using. I see it all the time on here. I did it.

Pick yourself a good time window, when you won't have any pressing issues for about a week or so, and then you get sick for a week or so. It will be over with and you'll be free. I did it and I feel it was more than worth it. I love my new life of freedom. Like you, I kept using because I didn't want to go through WD. You're right about the sleep. It will be at a premium for a few weeks. And the restlessness, stomach and other GI issues, no energy; that only lasts a week or so. But its all worth it to be free again. I found it much easier to get clean, then to keep chasing the buzz I was no longer getting any more. I never did catch it again.

Check out the Thomas Recipe below on the R. Those items will help u to be as comfortable as possible. We also have a bunch of other remedies to help u out with.

Welcome to the forum, how long and how much have you been snorting percs? As serveral people here have stated there are many ways to stop. I myself took the CT road, I was rough for about 6 days but I got through it and have been clean for 1065 days. I know you CAN DO IT too; you just have to go for it. There are a lot of people here that can guide you through the process. So just do it. I will pray for you and ask God to guide you to the right road. God Bless---Rick

started sniffing percs 3 years ago was addicted to oxys, when I was going through wd I started sniffing percs to ease the wd symptoms, once oxys changed and could no longer get I was up to 8-10 percs a day, recently was doing 6-8 a day, tried cold turkey but way to tough my breathing was all messed up, so decided to cut back slowly.... to taper myself off currently at 3-4 a day, doing this for a week then cutting back to 2, then going to try again cold turkey, hopefully by then my body will not rely so much on these damn things, I truly hate this addiction!
