Hope you feel better soon!  don't EVEN worry about all that.....we've all been there or are there.  I'm in wimberley.  please stay in touch, no one will judge you.....the only support you might get at all could be here.....unfortunately that's how it often works with addiction.

I wish i had more advice.....but i'm sure someone on the forum has been exactly where you are now & will have some info for you.....please try adding another thread asking everyone for help.

yes....i think everyone on this site has felt exactly like you & believe it or not was/is in the same situation....desparate.  i think you either get to that point & finally quit or you die.  "there are no old junkies" is just as true now as then.  for me the psychological stuff is the hardest ....i just want to escape all the time.....so sorry to welcome you to my club!

i know you will be sucessful here pretty soon,just don't give up even if you have to start over everyday.  can you think about flushing the rest of your supply? call whoever you get it from & tell them not to contact you anymore?  
on your side

You deserve a big bear hug!  Hey Renee.  Thanks for your nice note.  Don't worry about starting over - we've all been there too.  Just see tomorrow as a new day and start again.  You can do it.  Just remember, you survived many years before meeting the poison and you'll survive many more after you kick it.  To answer your question:  I think I'm past most of the physical stuff, but the psychological stuff still gets at me from time to time.  I just keep trying to remind myself that I'm in the fight of my life.

Just a quick note to say hi!  I understand your situation, as I was there not long ago.  You've found the right place if you're looking for folks who have walked that road.  I won't lie - this process isn't easy.  However, if you make a plan and stick to it, you'll find every day gets a little better.  I'm on day 41, so please feel free to message me if you would like to know my recipe (I just slightly modified the Thomas' recipe).

hey girl---yup, really bad abd. cramping, super bad headache, gooseflesh that hurts, shivering & sweating at the same time--even on your scalp! bad diarrhea. shaking, legs hurt. take baths, showers 10x/day if you have to;force yourself to drink a cup of hot tea (no caffeine-dehydrates you more) every hour; Immodium AD but only with loose stools1-2/day were enouch for me; srambled egg or something light--you'll have to force yourself. Damn girl, if you can cut them in half today that's awesome;did some reading, lots of folks on heroin & more pills than you take go ct, but i couldn't advise you. It's 96 hours of hell & then you're weak but it's basically over; sounds like you're already in wd on the lower dose; just think today or tomorrow you could flush the rest & get it over with! Annabel

DO NOT beat yourself up;it's so F*******hard!  My husband helped me thru 5 days of hell & then I backslid;how stupid----no! how typical drug behavior is more like it;call it what they like,it's an illness that's treated like a crime.  I don't know that I could've done it alone. 20 pills a/day;I'm afraid you'll have convulsions if you stop cold; a pain management dr. could tell you;call a rehab center, or suicide crisis;verbalize how desparate you are. Drug addiction is a form of suicide & when the medical community hears a person verbalize it (suicide) they may be able to respond more as an intervention.  Hopefully someone else on the site can help you with more info. Can you cut your pills in half? If you take 2 pills at at time, can you  take 11/2 pills instead?
worried for you

I couldn't advise you medically.  For me, the big vicodins 4x/day over a 2-year period.  I  was physically dependent and addicted.  My body just started not handling the vicodin;it was almost like withdrawals;so I almost had no choice but to stop;it was the hardest thing I've ever done. Renee look in the phone book, find narcotics anon. see if they can refer you to someone, a doctor, clinic, outreach;get some medical advice; in the meantime you could start tapering TODAY, think about it.  For me (operating room nurse) I couldn't talk to anyone I knew at work or in our small town;just being able to find help/support here and being able to "fess up" was the biggest step in being able to somehow do it.....I know you can too.

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.

Hope you're finding the strength you need-----maybe if you read my posts it will help----I'm 61 & did it, I know you can too.  I didn't/couldn't wean but it's all the same battle.
