HI, so you relasped, so what!! You can never give up! About sitting around the house and getting nothing done, don't beat yourself up over either one. I have 3 boys ages, (16 & busy)
(10 & big slob) (5 & very needy) .
They were all told mommy is sick. I am a housewife so of course all of them and my husband are used to doing nothing. Today was the first day I didn't spend my entire day either on the couch,bed or in the bath. The guilt was killing me for 10 days. Well my house looks like a tornado went through it. I have never seen it this bad. I don't even know where to start. Think of it as a reward to yourself for getting off the pills. I promise if you sit around the house for awhile , the mess will still be there. MINE SURE IS! And a brighter future will be awaiting you. I really don't know what to say to someone to make them want to quit, since I was scared straight. Besides , I think you already want to quit. Please try not to hate your life, it is a gift from god. We grow so much through our trials and tribulations. I am a very weak person and if I can quit methadone you can do it. you really really can!!!best of luck SHELLY

SS, You can do this. I can't tell you how many times I relapsed from hydro and fiorinal. I used to barrel race and when I fell from my horse, my Dad would make me get up and start again. It was tough. But i did it, and I'm doing this too. I am keeping a goal in my mind all of the time. I don't know about you but I can't taper. I just don't have the willpower for it. A good, understanding dr. can give you some clonidine and very short term benzo to get you through. This may be the toughest thing you have ever done, but you can do it. I know you can. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Be strong and stay strong? I'm off to another ball game... Star
