... of them and I was taking about 15 a day. This is the first time I've ever been honest with myself or others about my usage. I feel absolutely horrid right now and all I can think about is scoring a few to ease the pain, but then I'll be right back in the same position I am in now. I'm kinda lost, alone, and in pain here and hoping I'm not alone.
You really need to wean off of them so that the temptation isn't quite as great. This way, when the pain gets too great, you'll cave. Joining a support group helps alot, where you can go and sit and talk with them. Taking benadryl for the nerves, and imodium for diarrhea helps, and take hot baths.
Kaismama is right. Jumping off at this dose is going to set you up for failure because the withdrawals are going to be nasty. You really need to taper down slowly for a more successful outcome. You may need professional help to do this if you are unable to taper on your own. Try cutting back by 1or 2 pills a day every week.
