    JL! You have to want to stop the daily routine of blowing money, then blowing pills up your nose. It has to come from within. You have to find that moment that says "Hey, what the F am I doing??" It will become clear. It takes time, it's not something that will happen overnight. You are addicted to the routine, so break that routine, and find something else to do. I have no experience in the snorting. But I know it in it of itself is an addiction. Do you want a girlfriend? Do you want to stay living at your parent's house, jobless, all your life???? Cmon man, life is so much more than that. You have to WANT IT. The routine of snorting will go away. Your body will normalize at some point and you will look back and say "Wow I can't believe I was strong enough to make it through that". Its so much better on this side. Your sinuses and liver will thank you in the end.

    Your wish is the main. If you really want to leave that bad habit, you can must do it. But you have need strong will. Also try to manage a girlfriend and try to spend more time with her, it will be easy to you to leave your bad habit.

    The 30's were my doc, and while I wasn't into snorting them, just the act of taking them every few hours became a routine. Never mind counting them storing them, getting them. I look back now and think of how many hours a day I actually consumed just to be an addict, and it's crazy.

    Truthfully, at first it WILL feel like there is a hole in your routine/life. But if you give it time, just the act of LIVING life will start to fill in those holes. I'm at almost 4 months...and now I wonder how I would find the time to actually do everything I was doing before. It doesn't seem possible. I'm not saying that I never think about pills fondly....I do at times. I can't say I "crave" them....but there are times where say at the end of a long day I think "sigh...I would have been enjoying a pill and a beer right now". But the fact is that SO much bad stuff went along with getting that pill and beer, and that was the stuff I hated and couldn't have in my life anymore.

    Everyone is different, but for me I believe this time around I've had more success because I'm more truthful with myself. I would be lying if I said I HATED the way the pills made me feel....there are parts of them I still do miss. But I HATED what they had turned me into, and I really hated the life of an addict. So everytime I think that thought, my mind goes to all of the negative stuff and I realize that I just can't have them in my life anymore. I did the same thing when I quit smoking....I LOVED smoking.....But I was sick of the cost, sick of hiding the fact that I was a smoker from alot of people, and really sick of constantly worrying I was going to get cancer someday. So I left them behind. If I could have just had the cigarettes without all of the other stuff, I would have loved to. And I might be wrong for saying this....but if I could have had the pills without them making me a prisoner, and without all of the other negative consequences, I probably would have those too. But those worlds will never, ever exist....so I'm happily living my life without either of those things. (in May it was 5 years since my last puff of a cigarette!)

    Like everything else with withdrawal, you just have to give it time. Time for your mind to heal and for life to fill in those holes. Good luck!
