Re: Square one

Hi There,
I was taking 12 Norco a day for about two years straight. I was so sick and tired of it I just stopped cold turkey. No meetings, no treatment, no rehab. I had enough and was ready to accept all the aweful symtoms of Opiate withdrawal. The first few days I felt like my best friend had died and I was treading water. As bad as those first few days were I still had to go to work and run my business. However,from the moment I stopped I did not crave the drug, because I knew that was got me to this dreadful point in my life anyway.
You must get to the point were you are sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Tappering off is very difficult for an addict to do. I tried a number of times and just kept eating the pills faster and faster.

Here is my suggestion. Stop cold turkey. Tell all your drug sources not to supply you with pills anymore. You must close that door so that you are not tempted to go back to these people. For me I had a family member call my "Doctor Feel Good" to tell him what I was going through.
I am now clean 60 days and feel 100% better about life and my future.

You can do it if you really want to stop. Nothing that is easy, is worthwhile!
