kelleigh, hey how are ya?..give your self credit, alot of it...you have been off for 5 weeks?...great, you will get better each day, the more you dwell on it, the longer it will take, just like anything in life, it is hard though, i was on methadone from 1996-1999 80 mgs a day, i was sick of going to clinic every morning, here we cant take the stuff home, you have to go to clinic every morning to get dosed in liquid form...after being late to work almost everyday, having a family member as boss helped though..lol...i came down gradually on my doase 2 mgs a month...when i got to 60 mgs, i couldnt go any lower without withdrawls, i then heard of dr lance gooberman...i drove to maryland with my ex, had the rapid detox procedure done, where they put me to sleep for 6 hours and induced withdrawls...woke up a wreck, but after 2 days i was feeling pretty good, went back to work after 2 weeks...it was succesful, i am now trying to cold turkey oxycontin, and its tuff so i know where your coming from, try to do as much as possible to keep your mind thinking where you dont concentrate on things in the past and stuff like that...its hard but you will get there!
