Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board


Listen oxy, don't beat yourself up and instead of hating yourself, how about turning the hate toward PILLS. That is how i went about it, i developed a severe hatred for them and what they turned me into....
Stick with the methadone clinic for now and GO TO A NA MEETING....you can just sit and listen, you don't even have to talk if you don't want to. If meetings are out, why not admit yourself to detox, it would only be a week or so of your life, to GET your life back on track. Sometimes being locked up is the only way we learn. One time when i was detoxing, my car broke down, and i was so thankful that i was "car-less" because it stopped the madness and let me follow thru with my plan. What happened with the methadone? Did they kick you out? How about suboxone??? maybe look for a doctor in your area, if you are paying 100 bucks a day for your habit, i am sure the sub. will be much cheaper. That would be my suggestion.....Suboxone.
Hang in there, and stop beating yourself up over this and just start using your energy on other things, like looking for a sub doctor, or finding a meeting near you. Try to stabilize for now....on the lowest dose possible, and just get used to the idea of not getting HIGH, just taking the least amount possible to starve off w/d.....How about switching to vicodin to taper down.....
I am just trying to give you every option i can think of.....
Please consider telling your family, you will feel so much better, once you do.
You say they are very supportive, so go to them, that is what family is for!
hang in there, i am praying for you, try to focus on a plan.....
luv,
