... days i have only gotten maybe 2 to 3 hours of sleep. Im going to be ok right? I am a little scared right now. I have found this sight very insprirational and positive. Alot of my physical withdrawls are pretty much gone or managble so i am pretty happy about that!! I should add that my doc was vicoden 750 es or norco 10. I have been using for 2 years but the last year i was out of control. 10 to 12 maybe more(the only time i counted my pills was when i was getting low.) I dont miss them at All just soooooooooo Tired but cant sleep. SOMEONE HELP
I must agree with my friend kaismama, she is right on both counts, keep yourself hydrated and take Benadryl for sleep. And it certainly does take guts to go cold turkey!
I went cold turkey myself off of (prescribed, never abused) OxyContin several years ago, so I know exactly what you are going thru. It sounds as if you are doing great!! You really do need support from a group like AA, you need a sponsor to help you thru your addiction.
You've come so far, it's truly fantastic!! You are on day six and doing great, keep it up and you will have your soul back. That may sound quite dramatic but that is exactly how I felt after the acute phase of w/d was over.
Please google Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome for Opiates. You will learn, in detail what is going on in your brain. Some people that get off opiates feel depressed or anxious, yet you don't seem to be feeling that way, which is really a boon. I recommend keeping a journal of your withdrawal process, if you are able to do so. IF you are ever tempted you can just whip out your journal and read all about your symptoms of withdrawal, how you felt, what physical symptoms you went thru.
Keep up the good work!
Leila, i want to stop too! What were your w/dawls, how was it, how is everything now??? Im SUPER NERVOUS!!! But i want to get off this junk. I have a back injury but i dont care... i dont want to take this medication. I take 8-10 pills a day. (10's). I tried fr about 1 day and i felt like i was going crazy. My anxiety was just horrible... help me! :)
