I don't know if I'm going about this the right way. I have along history of substance abuse. I want to get off these pills but don't know if I can do it this way. It has been a rough week. I was ok for the first couple of days, then it became a real struggle with cravings, hot flashes and chills and my addiction playing with my head. I took everyone's advice to slow down my taper. I slipped one day. I got upset and took my whole days worth of pills at once ! This upset me more so The next day I took more pills! I felt like I was right back where I started from. I really can't do this anymore !!! I'm trying to pick myself up and dust myself off and get back on my taper. Progress not perfection right ? I don't know. I am wondering if I should give up and go on Suboxone instead. I'm afraid of another relapse and I'm afraid of Suboxone too. I'm stuck between a rock and a sore spot. Do u think it's possible to ween myself ? or am I just kidding myself ? I was taking a lot of Norco for along time.
