Re: another go at it.

You and I are in the same boat. I went back to my old ways during the holidays and now i'm paying for it. I was over all the horrible withdrawls and now i'm going through them again. How stupid!!! My poor body has been through hell and all I can think of are those evil pills. This is probably the hardest thing that I have ever had to endure but I want my life back. I refuse to give in this time, it's time to end it. Jump on board with me it's always nice to know others are in the same boat and are here for support.

Re: another go at it.

Good to see you back Jerry. Just keep trying, it is such a hard thing to do I know. I am still tapering. It will be a while. It is one of the hardest things I have done. I keep going though even when I want to quit. I can feel something inside that wants me to be happier. I just can't figure it out yet. I'm sure you will try again, maybe get farther along this time. Just don't leave us, even if you relapse we all have and want to support you. So let us know how your doing ok?

Re: another go at it.

Hello all,
Welcome back Jerry..
Captn, something you've been saying has made me understand something. A lot of reasons addicts use and keep going back to using is because they are trying to fill a void in their life. MP, that seems to be the problem for you and a lot of others, including me. I read your other post and I so know what you mean. Fear is a very real and big thing that gets in the way. For a while, and still happens sometimes, I get anxiety or scared when it's time to go home and face kids, supper, homework, etc. Because I never did it w/ out the pills before. So it's like you have to learn to live again sober and do things a different way. That's why it's so terrifying. The void is even harder to fill. That's why people will tell you to find a hobby, go to meetings, occupy your time.. so you can try to fill the void left by the pills with something positive. lol... easier said than done. huh?

Re: another go at it.

Thanks for your support,folks.
I just dont want to be the guy who cries wolf,you know,quitting and then using and then quitting and then using...eventually people give up on you...
I have pretty much given up the oxycontins...I have been using the same vicodans/lortabs that I was weaning myself off of the oxycontins with.Now this is a much lower dose pill than the oxycontins that I was using heavily b4,but there is still no excuse for me to be on them...still.
My problem is the weaning off thing.I hate the withdrawls.Always living on the edge of withdrawl.God,does that suck.
I need to do this.I just cant seem to wean off properly.If I have them I use them.I just need to get thru those first 4-6 days....I need to stick to a plan...

Re: another go at it.

if you did a 'pop quiz' jerry and asked everyone on here "how many attempts have you made at giving up?" i think you'd be surprised by the answer. i used to give up every day - no joke. just keep plodding on jerry - it'll happen. hang in there mate

keep on keepin on

Re: another go at it.

Hey Jer.... I think I pretty-much speak for ALL of us when I say we would never give up on you. Man, if everyone gave up on me with all the slips I made, I'd be awful lonely right about now.

So now worries Brother - we're here....we all are. Step up, do what ya gotta do, and we'll be right here next to ya every step of the way.

Hang in Bro....and be strong.

BTW....How's the weather up there?

Re: another go at it.

I'm down to just a few? 4? Vic 750's a day.
I guess this is way better than snorting the oxys like I was,but we all know it still opiates in yer system,and opiates are opiates are opiates....
Took my last 3 this morning.Dont have any more.Guess I'm gonna just go for it.Again.
Maybe the wd's wont be as bad as b4.I know I need to do it,tho.I can never stick to a taper.If I have em I use em.
I know the wd's were bad from the oxycontins.It cant be as bad from stupid vicodans,can it?

peace.
