Discussions that mention norco

Family & Friends of Addicts and Alcoholics board


I am trying to stay sober and my husband just told me that I dont understand and that he does not want to live his life with headaches?!!! What and excuse. He says because I am getting clean off norcos I dont understand the methadone w/d's. I know my dad did it in JAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I told him that I have to take the kids and leave. I cant believe he chose those PILLS over us??????????? He will probally never quit. We moved far away to get away from those things but I guess not far enough. I told him that he ripped my future out form under my feet and I am really pissed about that. I did it, why cant he? I am posting this because I want everyone to see the damage that these pills can do, and to think they are LEGAL????? I feel so bad for my daughter that it kills me inside, this is exactly what I had to go through as a child cause my dad was addicted to heroin. Now she is going to have to do the visits monitered of coarse, and it just isnt fair that he has control of my daughter having her daddy! I am sooooo angry right now and I cant believe this. Thanks for listening. by for now.

Boy I feel for you right now and I'm sorry for all your going through I'm not sticking up for you husband by any means but I have been on this board for a very long time. I know this isnt what you want me to say or that you want to read. From what I have seen is that stopping the meth is alot harder than the vic's norco or anything else. There was a person on here not long ago I wish I could remember his name I will look it up so you can see what he went through getting off it. He was in such pain and w/d's that he went and got heroin to stop them. I have seen this more than once with people who have had long time use with this drug. If he is not willing to get help with a plan or attend meetings than he does not want it bad enough. You really have to taper very slowly with this drug and I have heard its pure hell alot worse than what we felt coming off the pills. I agree with you for laying it on the line as its hard for you to work your butt off and suffer and you stop taking pills and he just cant do it. I can see were that would be frustrating and would be a huge temptation for you too. If you cant beat them join them. You have to stay strong and clean for your kid. He will have to decide how serious he is and get help with a taper and meetings and do whatever it takes bottom line. He has to want this more than anything. That is why relapse is so high cause the w/d's suck and its not like the flu where we know we have to let it run its course we know a pill would stop the feeling. So I dont blame you but I would research how hard this is too. Not saying that your not understanding either so please dont take it the wrong way. I will see if I can find that post for you.. Kim
