    oh yes, * had th*s. * had a dr years ago tell me to use nasal spray *nstead of tak*ng allergy shots. * was add*cted for 8 years. * know exactly how you are feel*ng r*ght now. go to *** drug store and get a nasal spray that *s just sal*ne. no med*c*ne *n *t. just pla*n sal*ne. th*s helps keep your nasal passages from be*ng so dry, *t helps. can * ask, was *t a cold that got you add*cted to *** nasal spray? are you seek*ng adv*se from your dr as to what o***r methods you can do to help you thru th*s? * know *t *s hard, once you stop us*ng *** nasal spray, bam, you can't breath. try *** sal*ne, *t helped me a great deal. good luck
    karen

    well, * have no *dea what *s go*ng on here, but all my *'s are com*ng out as *'s. strange.

    ps now when * get a cold, * refuse to use nasal sprays, * only smear on v*cks and dr*nk a lot of green tea w*th a sl*ce of lemon *n *t.

    Thanks for posting back. Yea, i got hooked on them from having a cold. It sucks! i have been off of them for 12 days now, and one side gets clear and then the other gets stopped up, and it switches. Did this happen to you?

    yes, this did happen to me. you will get there. this will eventually stop, i can't remember how long it took before i was back to normal. try the saline, it will help. i don't know if you like the smell of vicks vapor rub, but putting a little under your nose at night helps you to breath as well. good luck
