Trying to stay clean

I became a regular user of Oxy's about 9months ago now, and have became to realize how bad my addiction is becoming. It went from weekend fun to everyday survival. So this week I decided to stop... semi-cold trukey. I have used Suboxone a little, but I can't get enough to make the headaches and just overall crappy feeling go away. I don't have a lot of money and the only people who know of my addiction is my roommates, and theyre way more addicted than myself. So I was going through some old med's I have (I have severe stomach problems as well...) and found some Promethazine that has not yet expired. I have done some reasearch online and understand that this is a low dose opiate?? To help with the first stages of withdrawls... is this correct? Or am I misreading things...
Thanks for the help.

Re: Trying to stay clean

it is not an opiate and is safe to use,also when you are feeling real bad take immodium ad but you have to take anywhere from 10-12-14mgs for it to make you feel will help big time with all the w/d symptoms.takes time and dont use again,your not to deep into this yet,and if you stop it now it wont be near as hard as 10yrs down the line.good luck-spark
