... wrapped my mind around the fact that I am addicted to hydrocodone. I've tapered off use for the last two days and am setting in for a weekend of detox. I never took that many in one day. I started over a year ago (prescription) with 5 mg twice a day. This last month I have found myself needing ~30 mg a day. I also put two and two together and realized that my last few bouts with what I thought was the flu was actually withdrawal symptoms coming on. I would eventually take a pain pill for the backache and miraculously I'd be better. It's been well over 9 months since I have gone more than 24 hours without hydrocodone. But... since I'm not taking a huge amount, is detox going to suck hard, or just suck?
