Ct Norco

Well tomorrow is day one. Felt Easter was a great day to start. A date I can remember. I know I will make it as I have a tremendous faith in God. You prayer warriors keep me in mind. 5 years of running out of Norco has been a night mare. I was meant for more than this. Any suggestions on nutrition is is welcome. Been taking a multi vitamin for a week along with mag and zinc. I know the worst is day 2-3 for me. I will admit I am asking Jesus for some help. Thanks in advance for any help. I have been refined by fire when this is over I know God has a work for me. I want to help others

Hey & Welcome!

Congratulations on your big decision. Sounds like you've got a great attitude. Faith will be your armor in this battle. Go to the search box in the right hand corner and type "Thomas Recipe". This will give you some tips to help you through the acute and post-acute w/d's . Easter & spring are a great time to do this. A resurrection/rebirth into the life you so deserve. I purposely chose December 25th as my last dose of Methadone. Now, I'm 96 days clean. You can do this! I look forward to your progress. Please, keep posting. We're here for you. Happy Easter! Blessings & Prayers your way.

Thanks for the info. You stated  you take all the Ls okay I can conclude probably several. Seems to b a lot of discussion on good quality vitamins. Do you spend the money on a certain brand. I am a retired fireman which likely 70 percent leave the job have damaged backs. People who's house is burning dont want us to do strechs before we jump roofs an carry heavy tools. Thus older fire fighters damage their backs over time. Now I work investigating fires for insurance companies. So tomorrow I have to work thru a burned up house. Day 2 an 3 is the worst so I am needlessly nervous. This will be my last day 2an 3. Please post of vitamin quality even preferred brand

I am totally going to pray for you as well Im starting my fifth year on prescribed norcos and go through hundreds a month its sick. I need to know someone can do it. Ive quit before and only get a month or so and cave right in. My life is so different then it used to be I could go on and on. Im sick all day everyday because of these pills I never do anything. Im always feeling lost but cant imagine my life without them my anxiety is horrible already before I even started pills. It just helps me know there are other people out there like me. I hope to GOD you can stop. I need to know it can be done.

Thanks Lesa mine has been day 2 in the past. I am so thankful an believe I will not have withdrawals. I have had a similar miracle in the past. I am weak but actually investigating a house fire now. I served OCFD for 25 yrs now I investigate fires for insurance companies. I would say we have lost 2 of my brothers to pain pills in last few yrs. they all had bad backs from the back breaking work. Can't roll up to a house fire an tell occupants got to do a few stretches first :-). Again just weak but feel a miracle had occurred
