Hi emsmom,

I did see you were going into rehab!!! Good for you. I see from reading a little bit of your story that you have an extremely supportive husband and sounds like mom is there too. This is so great and helps your chances so much for long-term recovery. I'm sorry that you have to suffer a scary detox. I only detoxed off vicodin once and it was not pleasant. I will think positive thoughts for you and I sincerely hope that you don't ever have to do this again. I can tell you from experience that I picked up the Vicodin/Tramadol problem with 10+ years sober. I hope others can learn my my mistake that it is so much easier to STAY clean than it is to GET clean. Anyway, my thoughts and prayers are with you and I know you will make it cause Alkies and Addicts are some very tough and resiliant customers!! Best of luck to you and your family.
