| | tapering?
Hi Everyone, You don't know how helpful this site has been. I was on 4x40 oc a day for over a year , dr. script, bad back. The drug makes me want to smoke cig. I am not a smoker by nature but was up to 1/2 a pack a day. I hated the feeling of not being able to wake up in the morning and my lungs feeling crackly. I was a morning person. My daughter hates my smoking and I hid it for a long time. I lost my love of life even though I am one of the luckiest people and couldn't ask for more . I used to like to get high , within reason, a glass of wine at night, a couple perc's , now I feel nothing, I cant get high, I can't drink with out getting headachs. I just want to be normal again. So, I started tapering down on Jan 24 to 1 x 40 a day , that lasted till the 4th of feb , pain was intence ,went back to 2-3 a day for 6 days , now I have been back to 1 a day for 6 days. I dont smoke and have no desire. When I first cut back to one a day I has sweats, diarea, depression. But I am feeling much better, I know I am not normal on 1 a day but I feel so much better. When I get my script refilled I am going to ask for 20s and try to take one a day for the next month. Do you think I am going to slow? I am feeling so much better. I fight the temptation everyday, I will be glad when the 40's are gone, I do not have the strenght to flush them. I tried ct about 6 months ago, I didnot even know I was addicted and there would be withdrawel till day two, I was so nieve, I thought it was menopause! All the sweating and stuff.
Anyway, it has helped so much to read everyones posts. I am grateful.
