Mommyneedshelp2, Congratulations on taking this big step. I know how nervous you are but take comfort in knowing the side effects will not last forever. I provided a link that explains so much about opiate addiction, withdrawals, and medications that can help. there's also a natural and herbal link that's very helpful. Many people have gone through this and remained drug free for many years. If you could get some counseling too, that would help you understand this disease and give you tools to help prevent relapses in the future. I wish you much success and a happy new year!

Hi I too just started to quit & only difference I have is I've been thru the wds. If you aren't taking too many it shouldn't b too hard but yeah I think anything over 4 a day would prob cause some withdrawals. I'm a mom too & couldn't stop while working I'm virtually incapable of working when wds hit.. I'm trying with my hubby's help to taper down.. Hang in there b positive & you can get thru this.. I'm giving myself the same speech.. After all this is first day of rest of our lives..
