Unhappy caved in

I detoxed two months ago and last week I caved in and have been taking one half a norco for a week now. Will my w/d's be as bad as if I were taking 6 norco a day?

Hello Caraace,

There is no way to tell, as each individual is different.

Please seek the advice of a trained professional when going back onto a med; preferably one who already knows your history.

Take care.

Re: caved in

Not sure about that one.
This is my first and last go around with the JUNK.

I also say talk to your Doc. Be honest so he/she can really help.
I see a shrink myself to help. I detoxed off booze 8 years ago so I went back to the same shrink for help. We are working on my issues.

Meetings and message board also.

I also do quite a bit of praying myself but to each his/her own.

You must remember the W/D's vividly?

Don't start driving down the road to H*LL again.
You got out once so you can do it again. I would say the sooner the better. Flush them suckers and get happy again hun.

Hope this helps.

Peace.
Baja

I did talk with a professional yesterday and they think I should start Suboxone because I am still craving hydro. This is the hardest situation I have ever been in ever in my life. Addiction is powerful and I try to be strong but, I become so weak at times.

Thank you and take care.

Thank you Baja. I do remember the W/D's vividly and that is why I can't belive I gave into my craving. Today is a new day and I refuse to take anything but my vitamines.
Peace,
Caraace

Hello Caraace,

I would listen to the professional.

Yes, the psychology of addiction can be overwhelming at times; just like the psychology of pain(both physical and psychological).

One can become both psychologically and physically addicted at different intervals.

Know that you are not alone in all of this.

Take care.

Re: caved in

Hello Caraace,

I have no experience with SUB but from reading here I think there is potential for W/D's when you go off that too??

I am NOT a DOCTOR. Just read some more and ask the Doc. about that.

Just trying to help. I wouldn't want to see you back here with a Sub problem and I'm not sure if it is even a possibility.
It was just a question I had in my mind because I have seen it here on this board.

Maybe someone with SUB experience here on the board can help with that question? I am not really sure.

Food for thought Dear.

Peace.
Baja

That is one of the reasons I am glad I discovered the mesage board yesterday. I realize there are a lot of people who are going thru the same thing and I wish the best for everyone who is going for the clean and sober life.
Take care

The way it was explained to me was you are put on a dossage to stop the cravings and then you are weined down. But, I also have noticed that some people are trying to get off of SUB and having a hard time. I have two weeks to make the decision so, I will do my homework before I take that step.
Peace,
Caraace
