I have ( am ) been addicted to hydro 10/650 for close to 2yrs. Average dose 6-8 daily. I have a legit script for 120 mth. When these run out. I purchase 20 to 30 off street when necessary. Which is most always. Of course it all started with Dr.'s diagnosis/ prescription. Then with my addictive personality / character defects. The snowballing began and has brought me to here. Wd's started within 12hrs of last pill on 5/30. I emerged from this unbelievable, living hell Saturday 6/4. Never in my life have I remotely experienced anything like this. It was the last 3 days that were the worst. Sunday was a beautiful day. I rejoiced and cried deeply for the grace that had been bestowed upon me and gratitude that I so humbly felt. Today is Monday and as of this posting I have taken 4 hydro pills. 2 at 3:00 and then 2 more around 8:00. I am devistated and afraid. I have arranged to have the pills removed first thing in the morning. I have support. These pills were just across the street at cvs when I was going through wd,s. Yet, I refused to get them. I made it. Only to find myself doing them again. After going through what so many of you already know. Pure hell. My next step is NA. I believe this to be imperative at this point. My question. What happened? Why did I do this after going through that and feeling alive again for the first time in 2 hrs? And am I going to have this same withdrawal starting tomorrow? For about 36 hrs I felt real freedom. Now I am just sick... I have read many of your posts all during my wd experience. You are brave and beautiful people. God bless you all.
I have been in your shoes i was addicted to Soma for 5yrs, i would quit go through horrible withdraws but then would start back up. It took me getting a DUI (i don't drink) while driving on soma to turn my life around. I don't know why we do what we do what drives us to kill ourselves and for what? We know what it feels like to be off the drug, but yet we go back to it. I have been 6yrs sober from Soma and feel much better not to be a slave to it.
On another note, my ex-husband my daughter's father was an alcoholic i say was because he just shot and killed himself. He could not deal with the fact that he could never take a drink again.
We have to be stronger then the drug, not let it run our lives. Please do get help and goto NA, keep talking to us we will get you through it, there is life after addiction. My ex's death made me see how we become a slave to our addictions and how it can end our life and if we don't do something about it we will also end up dead.
You will feel like crap for another 4-5 days, but you will get that good feeling back, hang on to that, remember the bad, think about the good and the future you can have without your friend. You now have new friends who will be here if you need them.
I will friend you and you can private message me anytime day or night, i usually check my email every 1hr or more often. Hang in their my friend we will get through this and see the light at the end of the tunnel.
You have come to the right place to meet supportive people. We are here to support you anyway we can as BRR has so nicely done. First let me say that you can do this!! You have been through the worst of the withdrawals already. Since you relapsed a bit you are going to have to endure a little more but do not despair, you will pull through this and feel freedom again.
Going to NA is an excellent idea. I highly recommed it. You have a strong faith and that will be to your benefit. Take it one step at a time, one hour at a time, pray frequently and the hours will turn into days and weeks. The addiction will tempt you but if you go to NA and ask for help you will learn the tools to stay clean. Get a Big Book and read it. Stay connected by getting phone numbers of fellow people in recovery. Stick with the winners and they will help you particularly when the cravings are strong.
We are here for you, keep us posted,
Sundwn, you are one of those that is going to make it. Like you said you have to want it and I believe you do!!! hang in there keep in touch and we will help all we can. I admire you, you have started a new life and there are going to be so many people out ther you will be able to help. God Bless you.
