Are you planning to c/t soon or are you going to continue to taper? how long have you been taking them? and are you takin them for pain, and if so how are you planning to controll your pain after you quit? Please keep posting so that we can know how you are doing

Ahh so nice to have such a quick responses! You guys are gonna be great.  I sadly dont have any valium for the thomas recipe and that seems to be a key ingredient. *****.  Have tramadol, some weed, immodium, piroxicam, and my blood pressure meds :)  Also lots of beer lol

I took last half yesterday so today is day 1.  I know hell is coming.  I have no pain at all as I was using LIKE A F'N IDIOT recreationally.  IDIOT!

I will post as much as I can to take you all on this journey :)

It will be exactly 24 hours at 5PM EST.  Hour by hour right? So I imagine tomorrow and beyond will be crippling!
983679 tn?1276833336
hmmm..the valium is actually not a recommened ingredent by most on here..it can be a prob on its on..there is something you can get OTC that is compairable to valuim..i say be carefull with the trams, thats another prob, are they given to you by doc? if so takin them a few days might not hurt, however when detoxing cross addiction can happen easy..the blood presurre meds, is that because you have underlying health issues?  
Avatar universal
BP meds are because I have high blood pressure. No other health issues.

I got the trams as I heard they were awesome to get through W/D'als.  I just wanna get thru the hell.

WHat is OTC comparable to vals?
983679 tn?1276833336
dont expect it to be so bad, thats only going to make it worse..just look at it as if you have the flu..if you had the flu all you could do would be lay around and get well, thats all you can do here..just lay around and take care off yourself

Lee you are my new best friend!  Sorry man, I need ya! :)

L-tryptophan..its available at G.N.C. i believe if not there at health food places..and thats what we are all here for is to help each other through this
1096641 tn?1271707225
I agree with Lee...don't be so negative...keep positive thoughts...use the Jedi mind trick on yourself LOL. "I will wake feeling great tomorrow"...etc. it sounds silly as hell...but it helped me.

do it as naturally as you can. we are all addicts here...none of us like pain or discomfort...that's why we're here!

CT is Cold Turkey

Another breakthrough...I just TOLD MY WIFE.  She would VERY VERY rarely take a vicodin for a headache but VERY rarely. She had NO IDEA I was abusing the **** out of them and then moved to OC.  So I told her these next few days will be hell but I am determined as I know how bad of a husband and a father I have been.  This will change. I just need time to work this POISON out!  WIsh me luck.  Symptoms starting to kick in now as 25th hour comes to a close. I imagne tomorrow will begin hell but I am trying to stay positive. My wife was wonderfully supportive, understands and just wants her old hubby back (like I was before this poison was in me)

More to come. Thank you all.  I am entering the tunnel and not turning back.
1034192 tn?1445509784
Wow, I am inspired by your determination.  May I ask, what brought about this decision to quit?
Avatar universal
Sure you can. I know hell awaits and things slowly gettin worse but I wanna do it.  I was wasting every cent on getting a few pills.  While other expenses were being covered, I was robbing my family of extra income. THen we thought about Xmas and it hit me I was robbing my family of me as a person and a happy financial life. Now I am determined to just say good f'n roddance and try and move on. Scary as he** but I gotta believe the other end of the tunnel is better than this.
