Ready to get clean...scared and lonely please help
Ready to get clean...scared and lonely please help
I MOVED HERE 4 YEARS AGO FROM UP NORTH. I NEVER KNEW WHAT A ROXY OR OXY WAS BUT BOY DID I QUICKLY FIND OUT. I went from 3-4 a day to 12-18 a day over the past two years and its time toi quit before i lose my family and or OD. I dont have a strong support group at home becasue my wife doesnt tolerate any drug use. She feels its a character flaw. And prior to my experience with these opiates i couldnt understand teh physical addiction becasue i stoped vicodins very easy a few years back. These little blue devils nit so much. At first it helped me work like an animal..I mean 16 hour days none stop as i own my own business...sasles grew but the next 6 months were a compl;etely different story. Got lazy..stayed oin couch when was supposed o be working and now needed pills just to feel normal. Long story short im sick of the chase i feel like a degenerant but abyone that truyly loves and cares for me is 1200 miles away! I would be forever grateful for someone to contatc me even by cell if that was easier to get me pointed oin the right direction. Im truly begging for help...if i gop on like this i will lose everything trhats important to me so im begging for help
thanks and happy fathers day to any dads--hope to hear from someone soon as monday was my planned day to start treatment. I planned on taking my last 3 blue pills Sunday at 3:00 in the afternoon. Thank you and god bless
Your all right!!!
My husband is going on suboxone treatment this Mon. and he feels very lonely and depressed. I (wife) am here for him and I even helped him get into treatment!! I went thru treatment for alcoholism (30 years I drank) and he didn't leave me, but he didn't support my decision to get clean!! He actually had no sympathy for me at all. Your people love you, but you have to realize the hurt you have probably caused...you will be all right! I was all right on my own and my husband will be all right. I am a stranger, but kindred in addiction. You are doing the right thing. They will probably put you on something for depression..take it, it helps.!! Happy Fathers day...I wasn't big on AA, but it helped on Holidays. Try to take in afew they make you feel less lonely. Go to NA (narcotics anon) YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! GOD BLess..Sweetpea
P.S. YOU are going to treatment right? You better!! Funny, my husband is taking his last pills around 3:00 on Sunday!! LOL

How many milligrams would you say you were on? 12 to 18 pills a day seems like an awful lot. I wouldn't take all three pills at once either @ 3:00, why three anyway? Count and time! Huh?

Thank you for quick reoly
Thankl You so much. Today i realized I only had 4 pills left and even though I was convinced to stop tomorrow the fear anf agony of noit having pills led me to buy 15 more at 15.00 per. Everuytime i think of the money oI spend I am amazed at how i continue to do this. That money could have gone to a christmas fund, kids clothes, vacation etc. I begged my provider to set me up with methadone this week and he is getting me 100. He knows how painful this all is to me and even though he would lose a great client he would rather se me quit and get things back on track. If you have a plan please provider I am all ears. i used to work out at least 6 days a wek and have such a positive outlook on life now I cant see any light at the end of the tunnel. I guess I am really crying ou for help to strangers. Because the people closet to me dont knwo or are too far away to help. I am all ears and if I can get you to mentor me I would be forever grateful. I need someone just to even talk to. I plan opn going to NA meetings starting this Wednesday. Can we talk before then? Whenever is good for you i will make myself available and thank you so much for taking time to respond. It means a great deal to me. I know I can do this ith some help

I know when i wuit for 2 weeks sometime back methadone worked great. When i tried suboxone i was extremely tired and still felt lthe cravings? Maybe becasue of the high dose I have taken. But I am ready to do this jsut a part of me is so scared as to what will happen to my business if im not there the way i need to be. SHould i simply take a few days off and relax? My wife would then know something isnt right. So many factors that come into play that sometimes i feel like i just need to go to rehab to get away from business/kids/wife/bills etc. So i can only focus on my treatment. But in reality that would cause me to lose my family so thats not an option...any advice?
