Welcome to the forum~ Glad you found us and are ready to be FREE of your hydrocodone addiction. That was my DOC (drug of choice), too.
Sounds like you are taking a total of about 150 mg/day now, huh?
First, let me tell you that when I finally made the decision to be free of hydros....I had heard all the war stories about w/drawal, too. Since you are young and IF you are not on any drug other than hydrocodone...you will NOT have seizures. That warning is for people addicted to benzos, or tramadol or an anti-seizure or anti-psychotic meds of some kind.
Second, your question about going CT or weaning/tapering down....that is solely a personal decision because many of us don't have the ability to taper. I know I couldn't.....if the pills were in my house....they were in my mouth. In fact, just cutting back from 30 pills/day to 10 pills/day put me in a panic mode and made me actually WANT to take more. Tapering also draws out the process....and you have to have A LOT of patience and be willing to feel the cut back symptoms...level...and then do it again. It's a very slow and deliberate process if done correctly.
You can pick a Thursday to quit....the worst are the first 3-4 days. You could work Friday and have the weekend....possibly even taking Mon and/or Tuesday off.
There are several Health Pages that we used to have around here that have been removed (?don't know why though)....but I'll copy the links for you so you can have a read and see what you think about getting some of the items to prepare for detox. Just be sure that if you are taking ANY kind of other meds (antidepressants) that you make note of those cautions when reading these tips.
The first is the re-posted Thomas Recipe. Ours doesn't include a benzo.
The other one is an Amino Acid Protocol...it is helpful as well:
Hope this helps you in your decision making process. The important thing is to read all you can ahead of time...form a plan.....be prepared....and then just get r done. Cutting off your sources, sharing your secret and adding some aftercare are CRUCIAL if you intend to actually STAY clean.
Wishing you the best....and bless you, too~
