Please post on the substance abuse forum here; it is a wonderful support.  Lots of help in getting off pain meds and also tips on making withdrawal easier.  Are you abusing your meds or just tired of being on them?  How will you deal with your pain when you come off them?  I am not addicted but hated being on meds and came off totally without much help from the doctor.  I had to go back on narcotics recently because my blood pressure was way too high due to the pain.  If your doctor is supportive, there are meds to make detoxing more comfortable.

I am in a lot of pain, and I do have medical issues, but when i am off the pills I actually do better because I exercise drink lots of water and eat better..The pills give me lots of energy and I do much more than I should..I have been taking pain pills off and on for at least 8 years, but I have noticed that the last two years I take much more than I am suppose to, I even steal them from a friend, some friend I am...I am so ashamed..I don't want these drugs to rule my life anymore...I have too much to live for...I hope I am making sense..Thanks for writing back..This is my first full day and I feel very tired and depressed and acky..I am taking Advil..I have had two of those today and a little diarrhea
