... taking them till i get my surgery and heal. i know i hane an addictive personality and will have a hard time kicking it. i heve been taking them for months. we thin we found the reason for the pain. so the time to quit is soon. a week or so. i need support on how to get off them safekly without rehab
I am in the sme boat and just to give you encouragement I have been in recovery for 30 years and I have had a few slips along the way but 9 days drinking out of 30 years is better than the alternative. You are wise to "ssense" this right away. We are all very smart!! I have to put my daughter to bed - she has the horrible flu but I will get back to you in the mornning - it's 2 am here in CA. You will be getting alot of advise from the people here and we will do whatever we can - hoping you have help there with you. It is just the road to sanity and control of your life so don't be scared - htwooh - thinking of you. Get some immodium and alot of things to drink. Damamine. helped me with the nausea - and helped a little with sleeping - I usually don'tsleep for 4 nights and alcohol or med withdrawal. I guess whatever the drug did - the opposite happens when we are in withdrawal. That is why we stay on it - we think we 'have' to function - I finally thought - what day is it that I 'can't' function so I can be in withdrawal and I could never find one so I just went puking 40 miles away to rehab one morning 30 years ago and I have never regretted it. If you can't then listen to the people here or at meetings who have been thru this and beleive it!! After my rehab I had the knowledge to understand it and then it was my own dam fault when I stupidly drank listerine or whatever I thought I just 'had to have'. Hope you feel better.
