Today is my sixth day being free of the "Vicodin dragon". And before I go off on my story I'd just like to thank everyone who posts on here, sharing their experiences. You've all helped me through one of the hardest parts of my life. I've had the habit for about two years. And just like it is for all of us, it started out as a legitimate pain reliever. As of Christmas I was up to 15 Lorcets a day. On Tuesday though, I was out and starting to hurt again and something just snapped. I couldn't do this anymore. Thankfully I have good family and friends and everyone here to turn to for support and help. I was expecting the worst. I've tried before and it seemed like the WDs only got worse as the days went by eventually ending up in me giving in. This time though, I feel like I'm already through the worst of it. Days 1 and 2 were hell of course, but by day 3 I was up and moving around (very slowly) but feeling like I could actually do this this time. Days 4 and 5 were even better. Today, I almost feel normal. I know that there are plenty of hard times ahead and I'll be fighting this dragon for the rest of my life, but with my three F's (friends, family and faith). I can get through anything. I'm praying for everyone here and I know that if I can get through this, we ALL can.
