... years, percs and T3 (tylenol with codine) when desperate. My last norco was 2 nights ago and took 7 T3 yesterday. I have 3 T3 left and want to quit cold turkey. I would like to try the Thomas method but don't know where to start. I can't sleep, am very irritable, I have RLS and muscle cramps. I do have access to kolonopin, Xanax and depakote. Please help me, I do not want to keep doing this. I have been clean on and off for years. I want to stay off this time. I seem to have trouble STAYING clean. I've detoxed 1-2 before without any help from doctors or clinics but it was total hell. I just wanna get through the phys wd as quickly as possible (obviously). Please give me any advice you have available in regards to a speedy recovery and help on STAYING clean. Thanks!

So......it has been a rough 24 hours to say the least. I am afraid to take the Xanax due to possible benzo addiction. Hot showers have been helping but the joint and muscle pain is so intense. Does anyone have other suggestions? I have been taking potassium and a multi-vitamin. What about foods or other supplements? I have all the ones for the Thomas recipe. Any advice please!

My advice would be to go to suboxone.com and use the dr locator service, call all the drs to see if there is one you can afford, the fees associated with suboxone vary fro dr to dr. A really good subs dr will require addiction therapy, I know many drs and patients skip this, but that is how you get clean and stay clean. Those underlying emotional issues are likely triggering relapsing, I know you want to do it alone too, all addicts do. But the facts show those who stay supported thru counseling stay clean longer, if not permanently. Also go to YouTube.com and look for SuboxDoc's 2 part video on how suboxone works, then look up maple2609 for why subs versus ct or methadone. I have a client now. Will check back soon, pattishan

Hey Mr. Fuzzyface,
You've come to the right place. There are alot of folks like you and alot of support to be found here. You can use the Thomas recipe for opiate withdrawal at: http://opiatewithdrawal.org/forum/index.php?topic=1204.0
You may need the klonopin or xanax but be careful they are addictive too. Don't think the depakote is needed. Don' t take more Immodium than the prescribed amount on the box.
I really recommend addiction's counseling of some kind. You'll need to learn the tools necessary to stay clean. The physical withdrawal will be over in a week or so but the mental part still needs to be addressed. Whether private counseling or group meetings like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, doesn't matter which, as long as you do it. You can google each and find meetings near your location.
We are here to support you and your efforts, congratulations on your decision to get clean!!
