I understand what you're going through as I started taking Vicodin for some serious pain and
ended up (now) mildly addicted to them (I take between 5 and 7 a day when I have them). I
still take them regularly though I don't regularly need them (only once in a blue moon).
I can't get enough to remain addicted as I get my prescription for 45 and then run out of them
before refill time so I am either up and feeling good or in withdrawal and feeling miserable.
However, if you actually still have chronic pain and rally need the meds there is no reason
you should give them up and someone needs to talk to your husband (your physician
perhaps) and explain to him that there's nothing wrong with taking meds for legitimate
pain. If he doesn't understand that he's not much of a husband.
I hope this works out for you and wish you well.
