roxies are oxies...like lortab is to vicoden..same narcotic...i believe roxies are instant release...snorting is tougher to quit and detox is a bit harder than 'swallowing"  stopping the snorting would be a help and a move in ther right direction...

i detoxed from snorting roxies nad oxies...way more that you are snorting.  the act of snorting is very hard to break.  i detoxed c/t.  i stopped on thursday morning and worked thurs and fri.  i wont lie to you it was pure hell.  there were points when i thought dieing would have been easier.  at about day 7 i decided that i may live...days 3 n4 were the worst.  i have been clean almost a year from them and i can tell you it worth every minute of that he!! to be where i am today.  are you wanting to quit?

i have been addicted to roxies for about a year. my addiction creeped up on me it was very sudden. i would first do them just to have some fun but eventually it turned into everyday then every morning then 5 a day. i am at a point where i can not get out of bed and feel right unless i take a roxie. i dont do other drugs i have done oxy's numerous times but my addiction is to roxies. i have done so much to try to stop but its the hardest battle i have ever had to deal with in my life.. i feel adnormal when im sober. i get shaky mad upset sick its terrible i wanna stop n im doing everything i can to stop. it just gets harder n harder everyday. just take my advice doing this drug will be the biggest mistake u could ever make it will ruin ur life your relationships with family friends n boyfriends n eventually u will loose everything. you will loose so much weight you will not look good either. you get discusting bags under your eyes its gross. i look like a complete dope feen n i hate it.there is no way to change it makeup dont hide it. i would do anything to stop. i was a pretty girl who was never fat i weighed around 135 now i weigh 120 n look terrible

You can get off of the roxies, see a dr, get help do it right!!  The old you is not gone, just hiding under a big bottle of pills.  I understand not feeling normal when you are out of pills.
I have never felt good in  my head until I started pills.  I know everyone has some terrible things to say about SUB, but I took 1 tab in 3 days and have not felt that good for years.  See a dr get some help,

i was addicted to roxi's doing about 2-4 per day before i quit (although i rarely snorted them)  still the same addiction and i was doing a little bit more than you.  i am 21 days clean tomorrow at 8 pm.  i did it cold turkey.  it is hard, but totally doable.  you have to really really really want to.

my roomate is still addicted, his addiction is horrible...i have been trying to help him since i have been sober, it's impossible.  

trust me, it only gets worse.  he snorts SIX AT A TIME now about 3 times a day.  he has even shot them up.  in one year he went from doing one a day to doing twenty a day and he is in really bad shape.

you don't want to be like that. stop now.

when you stop (i just stopped, no weening myself off, no replacement pill) drink tons of water, go to your grocery store and buy emergen-c drink 3 of them a day, get yourself some melatonin and valuriun root (for sleep at night) and try to force yourself to work out a little bit each day, even if it's just a walk around your block.

good luck

i have been doing roxies for about 6 months now,and haten life cause it has started ruining my life and relationship..My girlfriend is doing them to.We only started doing them every once and while like one each and feel fine all day,then it started two and three apeice,and we started buying them off the streets and spending all of our money not paying our bills and getting behind. But now me and her has come to a come to jesus meeting and we are working ourself off of them,it ***** so bad cause the acing,sweeting for me is bad,but i have the heart and mental toughness to quit them cold turkey,and my girlfriend is doing the same.

my boyfriend just started getting really heavy into the whole roxy thing. he usually is just a once and a while party guy  but now its turning into a big deal for us. its ruining our relationship. i dont have an addictive personality and i have more love in my heart for this man than anyone could even imagine. but i cant handle the up and downs. he is a very angry and cold hearted person when he is all doped up. he says things he doesnt mean, he treats me like ****, OR like i dont exist. i just moved in with him 2 weeks ago. i know he was ****** up i just didnt realize how bad until i got around him 24/7. i just want to help him clean up before he spirals out of control. what can i do to help? any advice? i just want me boyfriend back.

I have been using for about a year now, i am only 20 years old and it is by far the worst mistake of my life. i have managed to keep it from the people i love but i know if i don't get off of them then it will only get worse. Basically if someone is addicted to roxies they will have very noticeable mood swings and become very angry very easily, especially when high. During the peek of your high, your pupils become very small and glazed over, your eyes pretty much just look really glazed. A person who does the frequently will lose a good amount of weight and their face will start to look "sunken in" at least, that's how i would describe it.

they are the perfect example of a love/hate relationship.  i started about four months ago and was doing one 30 a day and now four months later i am up to about 5 per day.  i was doing it twice a week and then four times a week and now it everyday and has to be everyday.  i keep trying to quit cold turkey and will make it two days without them and then my body and muscles are so sore and aching and my mood is so variable and i go buy like 10 of em.  any advice on how to ease the withdrawal symptoms?

I've been addicted to pills for about a year and a half it started of with tabs and then i tried a roxy for the first time i was instantly hooked i don't do many a day maybe 1-2 but that's not to get off that's just to ease the with drawls to get a actual high off of them there's no telling how many i would have to snort the sucky part about the whole situation is im only 18 and i've already been to re-hab for them i stayed clean about 30 days biggest mistake of my life was picking them back up i was sure i could control it this time but i was wrong.. i have tried to come off of them but by 7' o clock at night im in tears with out them i can't sleep i can't eat the only time i eat is when im about to snort one and that's only to prevent myself from getting sick and wasting the pills. i think my biggest problem is im scared of the withdrawls because they SUCK and i work at a waitressing job so it won't help me any to be in a lot of pain which will cause me to be a huge *****.
