there is a solution wrote:
If you cannot afford treatment there are meetings that you can attend that are absolutely free at the serenity club and other locations. I go to meetings there is a great support system there people who are willing to help and expect nothing in return. You should check it out. I was taking 30 to 40 L 10s a day and i have been clean for over 2 years!
I don't know if we are talking about the same place but there is a drug rehab center behind pizza hut across from the hospital in E'town. check with them.. I just don't know how one can function if they are taking pain killers. If I take one I have to go to bed. I only take them when I have had surgery..

I agree.... never understood why someone would love to be numb, sleepy or asleep beyond a "normal" 6-9 hrs.....when the meds are gone, I don't wanna downer "buzz" anyway. I can't think of one time I've had fun on a downer/pain killer. No pain, no reason, no downer. Duh.
so what

get up take a shower clean the house get moving exersise alot, drink plenty of water, dont just lie there and let it take over mind over matter you can do it. And if you even take a half of one you have to start back over. if you cant do it alone go to the methodone clinic but then thats just another addiction and its expensive like 100 a week and 125 to start but your probally spending more than that on the pills. but with the methodone you wont be feeling the withdraw which is worth it to alot of people. good luck

DUDE...no joke DXM is the way to quit....you need to take 2nd plateau dosage...for me its like 250mg...just get the pills with only dextromethorphan in them....it is a dissociative...it will disconnect your brain from the withdrawls enough to endure. The hardest part of quitting tho is not the withdrawls its the depression/boredom after its out of your system....always looking for that spark of energy you get...smoking weed helps with the boredom, the depression and lack of energy goes away after a month or two.

I went cold turkey for 3 days and broke down and took a half of pain pill,vicodin, I have been on these things for 8 years due to severe back pain.I have lost my job and home due to these things,i want to quit tell me what to do.will i have to start all over again since i took a half of pill.how long does it take to get your energy back all i want to do is lay around and sleep and don't sleep much at all, just laying there lifeless.Has anyone else been thru this when will i feel better!
I'm going through the same thing go to your dr and tell them you want off and that you want to be put on suboxine it's an opiate blocker trust me they are amazing or try and find them on the street it's $25 a strip and it goes under your tounge you cut the strip in 4ths or 3rds depending on your tolerance to pain meds never do the whole strip! you will have energy but will be off of the pain meds with NO withdrawals hope this helps dude!
