Please somebody help me out there. Ok here is my story: I've been doing vicodins and perocets on and off for about a year now. I have never been addicted because I never really abused them and would only use for a couple days then not use for about a month. So I never had any problems withdrawing or never even knew that you could withdrawal from prescription pain killers. Big mistake there. I wish I would have known. Back in the end of august this year I could no longer get any percosets and was really wanting them. The guy who usually got them for me had this $70 pill, which was a 40mg opana. At first I thought he was insane charging that much. But I wanted something so badly that I just bought it anyways. Well that went on for about 3 weeks of doing it everyday until he ran out and I couldn't get them anymore. That was when I finally learned what withdrawal really was all about. I felt horrible for five days. The last time I did them that week was Sunday afternoon and I didn't feel better until Friday afternoon, which just so happened to be the day he got more. My mistake was getting more, I should have stopped then but I made the idiotic decision to get more. Well all in all it's now the end of December and I am on about a 30 mg a day habit up my nose. I really do nit enjoy it anymore and REALLY want to quit. I also cannot afford it anymore and have no money saved up thanks to this devil drug. I have the last bit left right now and plan on finishing it up tonight, and I plan to get clean starting tomorrow. This leads me to the question I have to ask: I have two 8mg suboxone in my possession and do not want to go into a program, so that is it. I don't believe that my addiction has gotten too bad and it hasn't been that long that I have been on them, and I cannot have my parents find out I've been doing this, so I want to try and use these subs so it lasts me until I can stop them and have had no withdrawal. How should I take them? A quarter everyday until I'm out of them? Would that be my best option? Or should I do a whole one tomorrow, a half the next day and a quarter the day after then a half a quarter the day after that then the rest of it the last day. Or does anyone have any better suggestions? Please don't suggest that I go see a doctor or anything like that because I would rather do this cold turkey then to go and see a doctor or therapist. I thank anyone that is willing to help and please let me know as soon as possible!! For I plan on starting this tomorrow as soon as I am in moderate withdrawal. Thanks again!
alien7870, if your new to thi s site, welcome to the family, you will find many of us , me being one of them are on some type of pain medication and trying to get off. my point of view, and only mines, is if you had to spend 70$ a day to get opana to make you feel better and deal with the withdrawls better, then you have more of a problem then you want to admit. i started off at a half of vicoden 5mg, to 7.5, to 5mg percocet, to 7.5 ti 10mg, and now im at 162.5 mgs a day just to feel normal and not suffer full blown withdrawls. im on a very slow taper with my drs help, got down to 130 mgs more then once, do good, get stuck there, then end up going back up cause of the wds being unbearable. so now, im starting all over again, yay, now isnt this fun. im so mad at myself. but will dust off and try again. slower the taper, the least wds you will get. good luck, keep posting and stay positive. you can and will succeed,
