Discussions that mention hydrocodone

Addiction & Recovery board

Goodluck Billfisher,

Sounds like great advice from pineye. From someone who has been through what you are about to do.

I also want to congratulate you on realizing that you have a problem and wanting to get help. Even if it does take a little prodding from the wife. LOL

I have been prodded myself a few times. I became addicted to oxycodone and hydrocodone after a car accident. I fell in love quickly and fell hard. It has taken me places I never thought I would go; figuratively and litterally. Like you, I was a hard working upstanding person who loved his family and was very active and involved in life.

The pillz definately zap your energy and motivation and leave you laying on the sidelines of life.

This is my second and hopefully final bout with them. I kicked them for about 2 years until I reinjured my back a few months ago and thought I was strong enough to take them for the pain only. haha Didn't get very far with that plan.

Today is 72 hours without the pillz and am starting to feel better, more a part of reality. Its kindve a rollercoaster ride coming off for me but know it must be done to keep wife and life. (not sure why the wives aren't impressed with us laying on the couch all day)

I think I will try to mix in the excercise like pingeye suggested next. Goodluck, it sounds like you are on the right path.

Be Well
