How many were you taking? Were you abusing them? Are you addicted to them? It really depends. Can you give some more info?
Lots of great people here willing to help.

Yeah, it depends on how much for how long. But bottom line, you are going to feel like s***! Be prepared. A lot of people can't get through it. If it was easy, we wouldn't have so many addicts, right? I can tell you that your success will be highly improved if you have help, whether medical or emotional, you can't do it alone. You can go to an ER and they have to help. They can't force you to do anything so don't be worried about being carted off to rehab or something. But they can give you ataivan or something to help. Just be honest.
Best of luck!
