Is it possible to stop being an addict on your own?

I was using 4 tabs of Vicoprofen per day. This is Day 13 since I had anything. I have been using for 2 years at that level. Is there anyone out there that has been able to quit and stay quit at this level or more?

Congrats on day 13 ! Thats awesome. I was a Heroin addict for 2 years and opiates of any other form for 24 years eeeesh I"m old. Currently I am on day 61 clean and sober. Do you want to quit using? Personally I think that's one of the major factors in staying sober.Good luck to you. Day 13 ~~claps for you ~~

Peace Love and Skittles
Have a Grateful Day

Re: Is it possible to stop being an addict on your own?

Thanks. To answer your question, I really do want to quit but what many people are telling me I don't seem to have much of a chance doing it on my own. From where I am looking at my situation and the reason I have been using, I see no reason why I can't kick this habit on my own. But I am so new at the quitting game its hard to know for sure.
