Re: Life after Vicoden, what is it like?
Your question is one so many of us have asked ourselves--because it's such a crucial one to our future lives. But there is a whole slew of people here who will tell you how rewarding the effort is. It can take a long time (up to a year) for the brain to feel more back to "normal" in some cases. But most of us became addicted over at least a period of a year, so....we just have to be patient and let ourselves heal.
There are some wonderful, encouraging threads on this subject of "Life after drugs" in the Archives here. One poster in particular, Philster, has told his story in a way that's helped so many of us. You can check his posts by typing in "Philster" in the Archives. His posts are so worth reading. (You reading this, Phil?? How ARE you!) :-)
So--welcome to the Board...you'll find many people exactly where you are, who will be happy to share their experiences with you. Lynn :-)
