Smile Day 7, no pills!!

Hi everyone, today is day 7 with no pills at all and I actually feel alright for the time being. Yesterday was hard for me, I had a lot of anxiety and cravings, and I still have absolutly no energy but I am sure it will return. Also, everyone keep up the good work. We can all do this...

Re: Day 7, no pills!!

Yeah I quit cold turkey. I was taking about 16 5/325 percocets a day for like 2 years. It is so hard but I just had to stick in there. Its not fun at all and would not wish it upon anyone but I am doing it. I thought about sub but did not want to have to withdrawl from that. Thanks everyone for the encouragement, Lindsay
