Hang in there with your slow taper! Mine lasted just under 6 months and I went down to 1/4 tab every 12 hours before jumping. As much as I wanted to just jump earlier, I knew that I wouldn't succeed had I done it any other way. :)
Just a quick note to say hi! Hope you hang in there. I am a nurse too. Addiction touches allmwalkes of life, as you know. You can be free of these pills that are running your life. Just hang tight to a plan and remember how much you despise the bondage the pills have placed on your life. You will find yourself emerging again after you are free of them. It is amazing whe you see your old self emerging from the trimmed up fog. I am 81 days out now and feeling good again. I have some issues still, but being on them for 10 yrs, it is expected. Hang in there. Keep me posted on your progress!
May God strengthen your resolve to be free!
