Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board

Not many people know me on here, I am new. My dosage of vicodin from what I understand is relatively low. I take 3 pills a day with a dosage of 5/500. I have taken them for about a year. Today was my first day to quit........I don't mean to sound like a wimp but I broke down 15 hours into it and took 1.

I am not asking for permission and I honestly want to quit this. But I am at work right now and I felt like complete hell. I kept 1 vicodin on me today because I was afraid this was going to happen. I have deadlines and meetings at work and I have to be on my game. My question is this; should I wait till at least the weekend and in the meantime try to taper it down a little? Maybe to 1 1/2 to 2 a day?

Any suggestions would be helpful. I feel like a weak minded man right now and I am disgusted with myself.

sound good to me. that is not that much vicodin but it probably is to the point where it sort of gives you energy. and if you don't have you are very low and a little out of it. try the weekend and you shoud be past the hard part by the weekend.
