Addiction & Recovery board


I am addicted to hydro. 10 - 15 norco a day for the last couple of years. Last week I quit for 4 days, then filled my script for 30. They, of course, were gone in 2 days. What should I expect as far as w/d's? Have I completely blown it? Am I starting all over or will it be a little bit better this time?
Also, ---how long will I miss them?!! I really DO NOT want to think about pills for the rest of my life. But right now, that is ALL I think about. Will it get easier to move on?

Hi Reluctant, everybody is different; but I recenty relapsed and took vicodin for 2 months than stopped. I, also, was afraid of the withdrawals; would they be as bad as they were when I stopped after 2 years. Well, they weren't (but I didn't take any chances; I got some medical help). My opinion is that they won't be too bad from this slip. Try and get back on track, though, OK? It took me a few months to get back on track...and I'm doing OK now...

BUT, I'm not sure I'll EVER stop thinking about them. I think cravings can go on forever, but I do believe they get less intense with time, and as you begin to feel better from not taking other drugs.

So you slipped; don't be too hard on yourself, get back on the horse and take it from there!

Good luck.
