My advice is, set your mind to quitting, pick a week where you have no plans, and where you can get away with being a sick miserable S.O.B. Go cold turkey if you can. People here have done it EG. Lisa. It takes alot of will power, which I dont have. Good Luck-Talk to you soon.

    Angry Re: Hydrocodone Addiction - Need some help...

    I am in a very same, but different, situation. To make a long story short - 39 yr old mother married to a great guy for 11 yrs and 3 incredible children 10, 8 and 2. Beautiful house, etc. I just was diagnosed with ADD and started adderall - thought it would "save" me from my life long "pshco" feelings. I started hydros about 3 months ago. DT's from hell. Fell and started them again. Was taking 8 a day of 10/500 or whatever I could afford - so expensive online!! Starting mixing with Soma and Benadryl or Tylenol allergy. I have not taken any in a week. I feel over my DT's. So why do I still feel so HORRIBLE mentally? I am a wreck.

    Also - I have a hard time justifying quitting - other than the money. If it makes me a better wife and mother and person (and I swear it does) why should I quit? I want to start again so badly it hurts. I know they are delivering some tomorrow - what can stop me? Why should it stop me? If it is the best I ever feel or have ever felt in my life....why should I quit?

    By reading and seeing all these people trying to beat this "horrible" addiction - there must be a reason. Somebody please help me - I don't want to do this but I feel I will because I am such a better person with it.

    My adderall is doing NOTHING and he upped my zoloft - doing nothing. I feel constantly agitated and annoyed and nervous. I know as soon as I take 2 V's I will be great. Why should I quit?

    Re: Hydrocodone Addiction - Need some help...

    Thom3,
    Welcome to the world of hell if you continue taking vikes.... I, like you pushed everyone out of my life so that I could be alone to "enjoy" the vikes. After hitting bottom by not being happy on vikes and not being happy off.. I sought help. Honestly after hearing and reading every bad experience on this board... nothing can convince or will convince you to stop until you have hit your own personal bottom. The good news is that there is help for you if you want it... I have been not only hydro free- but helping others for the past few months. I havent taken my recovery lightly from the beginning- I mixed hydro with other pills like soma and ambien and it could have ended up really bad if I would not have have someone who was in recovery to show me the way, and what I needed to do to get well. I have two small children and they tell me all the time how different I am and that is how beautiful recovery can be... I know it will be scary for you to stop and not have the hydros to numb your feeling with- but having all your wits about you and helping others is a not only a way to survive but a way to live happy and heathly beyond your wildest dreams. You will just have to walk through some pain to get there. The other side is peaceful and promises a good hearted feeling you will not believe!
    Love always, recovery rocks!

    -Sara

    Re: Hydrocodone Addiction - Need some help...

    i'm back - and it's been over a year - and I'm in the same situation.....
    does anyone have experience with tramadol while going through w/d'S?
    i have found that (2) 50mg tabs per day seems to take away all W/D's

    i have much more to type - please forgive me , i've been at work for almost 12 hours.... will check back in soon.
