Hello all, sorry to bother again, I know you all want me to go to rehab/etc... but... wow... my mother took it all away today *Vicodin wise*, and that was it. It's over, I can never take it again after I've been taking it for over a year... now I have to go through the withdrawals when we were originally going through a weening process... cutting down from 3 pills to 2 and a half, then 2, and today was going to be 1.5 then my former stepfather lied about giving me Vicodin while it was really Ibuprofen but I noticed the pills were incorrect and he could care less *lovely support system I have* so basically... I must proceed, it is over, and I AM VERY GLAD TRULY ... I just cannot believe I am so addicted to the HIGH feeling it can give, that truly is the pitiful part of it! Oh well.......

Dear Paulos,

Email me if you have a chance. I have given up Vicodin and it can be very nasty coming off it cold turkey especially when you were using as much as you posted my friend. You were taking three 750 mg pills a day for a year so far. (That is at least 90 pills for month for at least a year).

I hope you can go back to your Doctor and receive the help and support you need to wean off this drug safely. I am sorry your family does not support you or is not aware of the safety issues in going cold turkey.

I am proud of you for recognizing your need to get off this medication. Remember people have beat using this drug after 10 or more years on it so I have great faith in your ability to get rid of the drug for good. Don't be tempted to go back up on the med and do wean safely. Your safety is important to us.

Gentle Hugs,

I am glad you are going to get off of the Vicodin, but like Kitt I am worried about you weaning off safely. I hope you have emailed her like she asked, and please do consult your doctor today if you have not already.

I wish you the best of luck my friend :)
