I have been taking vicodin for over three years, yellow football shaped. I do not even know what size they are, I have been getting them from a friend? who gets them from his doctor. I want off of these things so bad but just can't seem to do it, I have tried on my own but only last about three to four hours. I'm 46 years old, married with three older kids, two that still live with us. I just started a new job because the company I had been with for over 20 years closed down after the owner past away. Also, is it possible to just have these prescribe or is there a process you have to go through first, I'm asking because I can not afford to miss any work along with have myself be in a bad mood around my family. Would greatly appreciate any help
