Re: My vicoden detox...
First of all, congratulations on your success. I know how difficult detox is and am very, VERY happy to hear that you are feeling well "on the other side of the mountain".
"In the midst of my addiction I was extremely effective in business. The fact that they improved my performance greatly is one reason why I was taking so many. My accomplishments during the last couple years were staggering. Now I have to learn to do the same without 12/day."
I detoxed in December from four years of Oxycontin/Suboxone/Hydrocodone use. I discovered in the recovery process that I have Adult ADD, and have lived with it my entire life, unknowingly (I'm 39 years old). People with ADD often find that stimulant (like cocaine) or narcotic use helps them to feel "normal". Somehow they help us to relax and focus, and people with ADD can get easily dependant. Of course, the "positive" effects are only eclipsed over time by the overwhelmingly negative effects of drug use.
I'm not saying "you have ADD", but, if the narcotics helped to slow you down and focus it may be worth investigating.
AGAIN, nothing but my heartfelt congratuations to you for what you have overcome, and for taking your life back.
