Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board


Hello everyone,

I have been lurking around for about 2 weeks, and though I have not posted, just reading everyone posts have been very helpful and reassuring.

Ok so I have been on Vicodin ES for about a year and a half. I have been weaning off of them and have gotten down to 1 pill a day for the past 3 days. This is a great accomplishment for me, but I'm terrified to take the jump from one to none. I know this probably sounds silly. The WD's were easier for me with weaning, although I have definately had them. I just get so angry at myself, I am so ready to be done with this, but I keep hanging on to that one little pill a day. My body is definately feeling better, i can go 24 hours without a pill no problem, but then I take 1. I know I need to stop before I end up taking "just 2" and on and on. I think I just need a little encouragement....thank you all for listening.
Hi everyone...

Thank you all so much for replying. I was kinda feelin sorry for myself last night. I finally fell asleep last night at around 3, woke up this morning feeling surprisingly good...not 100%, but better than I thought.

I did originally start taking the vicodin for pain relief from my back, but you all know how it goes. I was taking 8-10 Vic ES a day. I am so ready to be done with this part of my life. I gave the rest of my pills to my hubby to flush......couldn't bring myself to do it lol. Now I'm just going one day at a time. Thanks again for listening to me.
