That is such a good story! We're the same age, and I'm from Florida as well, (hence g8trgrl). Myself, I was in a car accident in 2003 and started down the winding black road of pain pills. It started with lortab and ended with methadone. I have now been on subutext for 24 hours, and I have to say it's pretty good. I have my ups and downs, and it's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but we do what we have to do to survive and have a normal life. Anyway, thanks for the story, it's inspiring!
LOL! I am not 30 mins away.. I live in Baker County.. Macclenny, FL. I used to work in Jax, and my Doctor is in Jax.. I'm sorry to hear about the cravings..but you know that it's completely normal. It's part of recovery.. and you're right, it is probably because of you being almost off of the sub. You only have to go back to your first post to keep you away.. just never forget what you have had to go through to get to this point.. and remember where you were when you realized you could go no lower without dying.. Me, I'm on 16mg a day, 1 in the am and 1 at pm. The Dr is supposed to switch me to suboxone this coming Tuesday, and he says that I've passed the hard part.. but I tell ya, it's the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. I'm getting a little scared now, reading about the w/d from sub, but hopefully with my Dr tapering me, it won't be that bad.. he told me that every day I would feel a little better, and so far that's been the truth. So I guess I have to trust him. And I'm trusting in GOD to get me through this. I'm like you, I tried many times to get off lortab or even the methadone by myself, but I would just get too sick. So that's why I had to do it this way.. I was an isolated user, believe it or not no one in my family knew I was using! And the weird part is, I think they liked me better when I was on it! I've got to get used to the new me so I guess I have to give them time to get used to me too.. :) Hang in there, we can only take things day by day.. :angel:

Hey you guys, I am the wife of a Lortab addict, it helps me so much to hear and see what you say. I need to ask you a question... Im trying so hard to understand.. and I am reading that you guys feel low and have remorse, and I'm praying my husband has remorse, he has given up everything, family, home, vehicle, job , all for a pill. We, his family are suffering so much without him. Once upon a time, he was such a great family man... and I have to believe that he misses us and has remorse but he won't ever let us know that.. Does the Drug addict love the high so much, he cannot feel the remorse sometimes.. I know my husband struggles to have enough of the pills, he has been with a bar girl for the last two years off and on, she keeps him suppied with his love, Lortab. It's just so important to me to know that he might miss us and have remorse. You guys give me hope... and im praying for all of you .. always!!!
