This is very hard....
This is very hard....
Hi everyone, I'm an addict and have been for probably 15 years.
That's hard to say but so true.
I took my last pill on Friday morning around 7:00am.
I took around 4-6 hydros a day, just to feel normal.
The high of it went away a long time ago. Nobody knows about it besides my
husband. He has supported me through this and reassures me everyday how
proud of me he is. I'm thankful to have him. Anyways, my biggest problem so far has been
the sleepless night and crying a lot. I woke up this morning and felt good, then about an hour later
I got real nauseas and vomitted. Now I feel a little better.
My question is if my last pill was Friday morning am I about over the physical part of this?
A quote was sent to my email today, ( I get quotes everyday) and I wanted to share the one I
The elevator to success is out of order. You'll have to use the
stairs.......one day at a time.
Oh.....and that quote was right on the money! That is EXACTLY what you need to do. Take it one day at a time! That equals success for sure!
Thank you so much for the encouraging words. I so needed that. I've benn reading this site for the past week and it does help knowing you're not alone. Sometimes I wish these doctors who give plenty pills a month every month to patients would have to take them too. If that makes any sense. I never ever wanna see a pain pill again. I just can't fathom how I let this get to where it did. It makes me sick to my stomach. The money, the lies, the sneaking around to get them. Heck, I couldn't even plan trips for the weekend unless I had enough. Anyways, sorry for boring everyone, I just had to get this off my chest.
Today is day 3 for me and right now, I actually feel decent. Went for a bike ride this afternoon withy husband for about 30-40 minutes and it felt good. I'm hoping day 4 will be better than today. One can dream cant they? I've heard day 4 is brutal. Ugghhh!!!
I was taking 4-6 lorcet 10's everyday and thought that was the only way to get any thing done. They are the devil. I think my anxiety comes from wondering when my next
wd symptom will come. I hate this, I wanna see the end of the tunnel. I will pray for each and everyone of you here because we all deserve to feel normal again. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I know it helps me a ton......

This is my very first day clean for over 7 long years! And I started with having a headache at a party and a guy giving me what I thought was a tylenol or a motrin. One single pill! Boy was I wrong. And when that feeling hit, I was in love! No stopping me then.
Your habit although very addictive, is actually not that many pills in the grand scheme of things. And if you go after your wanting to be clean as hard as you have in trying to obtain the pills when you wanted and needed them, you will succeed where I failed. You have a great start to getting free and saving your life!
And that exercise is KEY! It helps your natural endorphins to begin to work again. And staying busy keeps your mind off of it. You are doing all the right things now. You only need to remain vigilant and want it more than anything else. It really sounds like you do!
Get those things from the Thomas Recipe....they really do help! And eventually you should try to go to some NA or AA meetings for continued support. I am doing that right now. I love it too! Those people there really do get it! Thanks for posting. And remember to keep posting. It helps so much to do that here. And you can look back anytime and see how far you've come. Take care and if I can be of any further help, please let me know. Bless you girl.

I also wanted to tell you that you began this thread in the "painkiller addiction" section of the forum. And that is perfectly ok. But if you would like much more "action" and responses here then I might suggest that you maybe copy and paste this thread in the "Need to Talk" section of the forum.
That site has MUCH more action, and lots more people that regularly read and respond there. Many more actually! If you don't know how, or need help in doing it, I would be glad to help you out. Just say the word and I'll do what I can to help.
Take care and have a great evening!
I hope day 2 is going okay for you. You sound so determined and that is key I hear. I'm proud of y
i don't rly venture over to this part of the forum too much.. but karen took the time to post on her thread about u..said ur new here?!..just wanted to come by and introduce myself..and offer u my support!
the good news is..ur doing ur detox cold turkey ..and ur already 4 days into it..
they say it should only rly last 5-7 days..
so it's coming along..
don't worry about stressing about the next symptom..i've said time and time again that the worst thing for me about coming off the drugs was the anxiety that came along with it.. just about the unknown i guess.
it's nothing but a thing girl!..
we all went through it..so ur not alone...
i know it sux..counting down the mins too? been there...
just know that the mins turn into hrs..into days...then months..until ur not counting at all!
just get through today..that's all that we ask.
(just like ur stairway quote )
JUST DON'T USE TODAY...
we'll deal with tomorrow as it comes..
just like ur symptoms
treat what's bothering u now..
and then IF another shows up..jump on here and post..and we'll try and advise u ..on the best way to deal with it.
i know i can speak for karen and I (if that's ok, karen lol) that u're kinda stuck with us now. so we'll be here supporting u the whole way..just tell us how we can help...
u have the desire ...and that's all it takes to get me in ur corner
so...nice to meet you!
i'll be following ur progress..so keep us updated k?

Clean and Sober as of 4-25-2011
I have your new thread already begun in the Need to Talk section! Head over there now and you can see for yourself. You should get lots more help there than this site for some reason. Seems that most people gravitate to that section more than this one. Hope you are happy with it!
