7 years 7 to 10 hydrocodone 10s a day I have gotten down to 2 a day and have not taken any today (I'm out and can't find any... Which might be a good thing.) I have tried quitting before and did for about 6 months. I have some depression social anxiety and have a lack of motivation. Hydros have always taken care of all my problems big small physical mental doesn't matter and haven't been sick the entire 7 years. Not even a cold. I have always self medicated. For 7 years I have told no one about this except the guy I get them from. I know I should quit but really just don't want to nor have a reason to Besides the cost. Someone that has quit are you happier? Is your life better? Are you happy you quit?

I have only been clean for 6 days so far but I will say without a doubt that I am happier. I took about the same amount as you for 6 years and I quit ct and with the help of the Thomas recipe had very minimal withdrawal. It also helps to stay on the forum and read about other people and their success.  Best of luck to you in your decision :)

Hi, welcome to the forum! Stick around.. You'll hear stories from many people who are much happier now. The biggest change has been that I FEEL real emotions now. My life is IN COLOR now instead of black & white.. Even the "bad" emotions feel good when you haven't felt anything for so long.

I hope you find the answers you seek and decide to quit :) Best of luck..
