3 1/2 Months off of Oxycodone....

This is my first post since the previous corny post...During that time I was in a real rough place, looking for any kind of hope to continue with the recovery process. My addiction to Oxycodone started small, 1-1 1/2 30mgs pills for the first 6 months and progressed to nearly 210mgs daily, some 2 years later. On March 11, 2011 I decided to call it quits, I was tired of chasing my pills at pharmacies and neglecting most of all myself. Its been nearly 3 1/2 months and things are getting easier. Energy is the biggest battle of them all, along with some lower back pains and neck. I have also put on a little bit of weight, nothing drastic...7 lbs. My cravings are literally 0, this was definitely a physical addiction. I have been working out now for 4 weeks, a ***** to go to the gym!...lol But, it is very manageable. I wish I could sugar coat it for everyone and say "hey, its easy you just have to make your mind up, life is great sober!". For me I chose no Suboxone, might as well just stay on Oxycodone. I could give a rats *** what anyone tells you about Suboxone, its harder to come off and its just another source of revenue for these crooked *** doctors and treatment facilities, PERIOD! The only thing that works is just sucking it up and dealing with the next miserable 45 days and then another 6 months of adjusting to just being normal. I know it is easier said than done, careers, kids that count on you, people who are unaware of the addiction etc. The only person who can do it is you, no facility, no additional drug and no one breathing down your neck to get clean. If you guys have any questions, i've earned my stripes and would be more than willing to help if I can...My heart is going out to you
