    :c009: all! Here’s my situation.

    Since February I’ve taken OxyContin 40 mg 3x daily and Percocet 10mg 2 x daily as needed.

    What started as a legit script for back problems has now turned into a fullblown addiction. For the past 4 months I have been snorting by Oxy and taking my percocet to the point that I run out 2 weeks into my one month prescription.

    I’m tired of the cycle of withdrawal and really need to quit. I’ve always had help to keep me from going through w/d’s until I get my script filled, but that help is no long available. It got me thinking about: “Do I really want the rest of my life to be this way?”

    The answer is no.

    Today is day #1 without any oxy and I took my last 10mg perc this morning.

    I’m going to try to follow the Thomas recipe because I do have some left over valium that was prescribed to me early on when I hurt my back (17 5 mgs to be exact).

    Any help you guys can offer me through this process will help. To compound the problem, I am a journalist for a local newspaper and I have to work all week starting tomorrow. I am determined to use no more opiates though and plan on calling to tell my doctor about what has been going on sometime this week.

    Thanks for all your help in advance. I know it’s different for everyone, but how long will it take me to get through the physical part?
