Hey everyone :wave:

Been meaning to do this for the last few days, but this is the first time since I quit that I haven't been completely scatterbrained!

My situation, I'm 22 years old, and have been partying pretty hard with the lortabs for the majority of 2008. Sometimes taking up 200 mg hydro a day. My tolerance just got worse and worse to the point where I couldn't even take the amount I needed to get high without getting sick to my stomach. That's when I decided that it was time to quit FOR REAL THIS TIME :D

I decided that I needed to really make myself stick to this. I work construction 10 hours a day, out in the 105 degree desert heat. Lifting heavy objects, bending over all day. Generally uncomfortable for someone going through w/d's :) Well I made last thursday day one for me, hoping that having to deal with the w/d's while working my daily routine would kick me in the butt a bit. Let me tell you. Those two days were pure hell!!! Haha. I never want to go through that again, and I'm hoping my little self depreciating scheme will actually work. My legs are still sore as all ever. I feel like I did when I was getting growing pains as a young boy!

Not very cheery, kind of lonely and gloomy feeling. But there are other issues involved with this. :( Been taking .25 mg to .50 mg of xanax to put myself to sleep in the evening or to just calm myself the heck down. Popped a few immodium yesterday and it's been keeping the bowels at bay hahah. Other than that, this is my weekend, and I plan to spend the rest of it resting. Maybe play some video games on the couch :cool: . Coming up on the beginning of day four in a few hours actually!!! I'm hoping to be feeling decent at work monday morning.

Well, sorry for the novel guys. But I'm positive that there are others in a similar predicament reading this right now! Get in here share your story, lets do this together guys. Please, I need this. We need this.

Any feedback really appreciated. Thanks!
yougi, If you haven't been on them too long, you said most of 2008, even tho you did take alot of mg. in a day I pray you will stay off of them. You are wd now but it will get better. I have been addicted to lorcet for over 10yrs and it started out because of back pain and then back surgery, but I also liked the energy they gave me. Please stop now and don't go back, I wouldn't wish this hell I have been thru on anybody. I have went ct many times because I ran out, but this time I'm doing it because I want it with all my heart and it is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. You have got a good start so hang in there and please be careful with the xanax it's very addictive also. I am praying for you. LOL, Fiesty
Thanks for the reply. I can't tell if I'm really getting any energy back. Xanax is all gone, so I'll be going it naturally and hopefully as clear headed as possible. Work bright and early 5:00 tomorrow morning, hopefully some moving around will get the endorphins pumping?

Thanks again for the support fiest!
