Hi everyone I'm new here, I have read many of your posts and this seems like a great community.
The story is I am a 23 year old male who has been taking painkillers for about a year now and it is time to stop, cold turkey. I have had various medical issues from broken bones to nerve damage that brought me down this path.. But I have also made mistakes. I have lost my job, my love and myself.
I am addicted but I will overcome this... I hope. I recently have been taking 100 to 120mg of hydrocodone a day. I tooth my last one at 130pm today. I can already begin to feel the WD effects and it is only 1130pm.
I have bought Imodium AD, ibuprofen, multivitamins and some soups. I also have some benzos to help ease the WD symptoms.
I am going to do my best to keep a log of my progress and any tips or comments would be very appreciated. I can't believe it has lead to this.. I just want to be one of the sober, laughing and smiling people. That's why this must be done.
I know I am in for a very rough week.. And I have to admit that I am a little scared
Any awesome feel good movies or tv shows to pass the time while going through this would be great
I hope you all have a wonderful day/night.
