for the past 3 or 4 years he has been doing 15 norcos a day. no sex for 3 years. i am an addict myself. i want to help him but i don't know how. i am usually the one being rescued. i have reached my limit and i want him to know that but he will just give up and call me names and accuse me of not supporting him
I have been in a similar situation. Both of us got hooked on Norcos. He was doing between 10 and 14 a day; I was doing 7. Completely drained our finances. We made several attempts to quit, but failed. Finally, he got sick of how are lives were going, and was able to quit first. I would give him less per day over a period of a couple of weeks, while I was still taking my regular amount. He went from like 12 to 6 to 1 then 0. Once he felt strong enough (about 2 weeks), he got me to go from 7 to 3 to 0. It's been 14 days for me now, still suffering, but not as bad. He's been clean for over a month. I'm so proud of him. We're working hard to get our old life back. I would not suggest that you both try to kick it at the same time. However, unless and until he's ready to quit, there's nothing you can do. He has to make that decision, and you will have to be there to help him when he does. He probably won't be able to do it alone. It's a terrible thing to go through. I hope you succeed.
