Happy Friday?????
Hi everybody!! Just trying to be postive because this past week has not been an easy one. Having cravings like crazy!!! Last Friday I posted about having such terrible pain so guess what......yes I took a few Lortabs 10/325 just to get through the pain.:( But now I feel like I'm back at day one again???? I'm struggling right now because all I want is the pills. I know i'm going to suffer every month I just don't know what to do??? I don't think I have enough control over myself every single month to just take a few here and there when I need them the most.

Hey Winnie,
I found the cravings to be almost as hard to deal with as the withdrawal.
When you are tempted, re-read your post about that couple that the husband OD'd and how upset you were with the thought of your children or husband finding you like that....I can't remember what your thread was titled, but it was powerful.

Hang in there Winnie!
