Your not going to relapse, dont' even say that!!! Your on one of the worst days right now, but it will pass. Do you want to keep going through this? You did the right thing posting which means you want some help. Is this your first time quitting?

get out and take a walk...jog in place inside....clean a closet...anything to get your mind pff the drugs.  nobody said this was an easy road...you gotta stand strong and not give into the addiction...if you do it will be harder next time...exercise helps the brain produce endorphins the pills have been supplying...so get to excercising...you can do this...its hard but soooo worth it....good luck to you...

Cathy is here, she used oxy's and can give you some more advice. Since you can't go to rehab, how are you going to stay off them. Many here have come off oxy's and very very high doses. you can do this. If you look in top right of screen you will see health pages and in there is the thomas recipe to help w/d's. Are you getting any sleep?

you will feel soo much better after your walk.  You are almost threw with the physical and then comes the hard part!  If you really want to stay off you have to keep yourself busy, maybe find a meeting.

taking the dog for a walk is great.  anything that helps you be busy and occupies your mind.  and anytime you get desperate just post, someone will try and talk you down....do check out the aminos and the thomas recipe..they will help.  you can do this one miute at time till you can make it one day at a time!!!!!  find an na meeting and attend it...they offer great tools for staying clean.  recovery is what you make it....so make it good and give yourself all the tools you need to live a clean and sober life!!

Listen at my highest dose I was doing 120mg. not 2 mention percs and hydros, methadone whatever I could get, mind over matter, you can do it, day 3 was hard for me too. But I'm on 2 weeks now, it can be done. You are stronger than it is! Stay strong, you are not lost, you are coming around the last corner before you reach the finish line!! Take it one hour at a time. I remember going through my hardest times and just thanking Jesus for getting me through that one hour! Please don't give up!   -Beth

im detox off of methadone maintenance and when ever i think im gonna crack, before i even have a chance to have another thought i run a boiling hot bath turn on the radio  and soak for about an hour. when you get out of the tube you will be so tired all youll want to do is lay in your bed. i hope this reaches you in time.

Tell yourself that you are clean. You are not going to relapse.

I had pain which is getting much better. I'm on day 9.

Drink LOTS OF WATER or tea, scream, yell whatever it takes. You only have this one day and this day is almost over.

Keep posting and more importantly DON'T RELAPSE. It may sound good right this minute but you have 3 days clean. 3 days!!! You are recovering.

Take Care, I care.
