Hi. I keep seeing really old posts, so i thought I would shed some light. Firstly, withdrawl is hell and there is no way to avoid it. Trust me. Many years ago I was a major narcotic abuser all started by a horrible car accident. You name it the doctors gave it to me. One thing they DIDN'T do was have my back when I wanted to be done with them. It was the most hellish situation I ever been in. BUT, I did get through it. Secondly, no matter how slowly you try to wean yourself you are still gonna have bad withdrawls for several days. A few months ago I had a doctor put me on a low dose methadone for my really bad chronic pain. He assured me it was a very low dose and long acting. When I told him I wanted off he gave two prescriptions and told me to follow the "weaning off" regimen. I did, but about 24hrs after my last pill the worst withdrawl set in. Where is my Dr, now? won't return my calls. Figures. in my opinion I think all doctors should be made to go through withdrawl. So, what I did was I keep 3 Lortabs 5/325 and when the withdrawl is just absolutely unbearable (the key is self control!!) relay on a friend or family member. ONLY use when in extreme distressed withdrawl. I HAD to deal with A LOT of symptoms still, but when I wanted to just rip my bones out of my body and then and ONLY then did I take the Loratab. The last one I cut into three pieces. Just be tough and brave my peeps. Here are a few things that I find essential to helping ease withdrawl.

My survival kit
My number one necessity is Pot. If you don't or haven't used it, be careful. It can make some people worse. It's greatest benefit is helping the nausea, and sleeping.

Drink A lot of Fluids. Water is best. Speaking of water BATHS. Hot baths are great. I was taking probably 10 a day. it's temporary but relief nonetheless.

Hot Tea.

There is a product that is called "slow-mag". it's slow acting magnesium. It Really helps with the "kicks" the restlessness.

Ibruprophen. Great for inflammation

and lastly but certain not least is ORGASMS. I swear to you!! Again, temporary. It is a great way to release endorphins And they come easily (no pun intended) Porn can be a great distraction. 

Anyway, please be careful. Go to the hospital if you feel hopeless, but be ready, hospitals do not care, and won't do too much for you. But you can never be too careful.

I promised myself never again. Twice is too many times. I have a lot of chronic pain, but I find other ways around it.
Pot is my new non addictive friend. Great for pain and nausea.

Isn't it amazing all the dangerous, addictive stuff that is legal? But a non-addicted weed is! Only here!! GOOD LUCK!!

I need some guidance: I started taking pain meds after delivering my daughter 2 years ago. I quickly increased from my dr prescribed 2-3 750mg vicodins to 10 a day. A friend of mine had 5 mg oxycontins, which she gladly handed over to me. Then my tolerance grew from there to the big oxy's. I hit rock bottom l year and 4 months ago. I started seeing a pay per visit Suboxone Dr.  He had me at 16 mgs a day to start, but saw the potential to taper me quickly and had me down to nothing in a few short months.  By this time last year, I was down to a quarter (2mg) a day.  I made it to 2 days, then a friend sold me two subs. I made those last a week.  Then I continued indefinitely on a quarter a day for a few months.  Last March, I moved and injured my back. I foolishly increased my sub intake to one pill a day to get through it. I think I was just looking for an excuse honestly. I was getting pretty depressed being sober.  I amped back up to 16 mgs a day again and have been there for a few months now.  I am at that point again where I can't believe I let myself get back here. The subs work to eleviate my withdrawals/cravings, but I am abusing them by not tapering down. Thank you all for your encouraging posts. I am ready to get back into being sober for real now.  Any suggestions for dealing with the  subs burning a hole in my purse?  Should I taper immediately? Down to what dosages?  Any help will save my life, and most likely my marriage.  My husband thinks I am down to a quarter a day still.  I feel horrible about it.

 

Thanks!
