    I am sure my story will sound very similar to others on here, but I really need some help and upport right now, and I don’t know where to turn.

    Let me give you a brief background. I am 34 years old. I was always a healthy individual. I worked out 4 or more times a week, I watched what I ate, didn’t smoke tabacco, smoked weed since I was 18, drank alcohol once a week. Starting in summer of 2007 I wanted to quit smoking weed and reduce my drinking to once a month. So what did I do? I starting taking 5mg Vicodins every Friday. After about a year of that, it was EVERY Friday AND Sunday. That continued till a went on unemployment in winter of 2009, then I was taking about 6 10mg Norcos every other day, every 3 days, etc… (always using C.W.E btw)

    Then I had an injury in early 2010, I was now prescribed 10mg norcos. Now that I had a legitimate injury, it was easy to take 100mgs a day, back to back days, etc. Then I had surgery in early 2011. I then began taking 140mg’s of norcos every single day. In April, I tried quitting cold turkey. I got 3 days in and caved. Went back to the 140mg’s a day. 🙁

    The pain from the surgery has finally gotten better, and on Saturday, June 11th 2011, I took my last pills. I knew what to expect this time as far as withdrawl symptoms go. I quit cold turkey, I am at the end of my 3rd complete day without any opiates, weed, or tabacco!

    Even though I never smoked tobacco, starting about 8 months ago I develpoed an pack a day habit to help enhance the opiate high. I am also on my 3rd day of quitting tobacco.


    2 days ago I started a detox diet of sorts. homeade veggie broth, raw veggies, yogurt, skim milk, and unsweetened green tea, fresh fruit, and salmon. I am getting married in 2 months and I want to lose all this weight I have gained before the wedding (about 30 lbs overweight). I also want this time in my life put behind me. I started riding my mountain bike (doing about 30 mins last 2 days). I am also taking vitamins, milk thistle, Immodium. I have been taking klonopin for a sleep disorder for over a year (never abused it, take it as prescribed, and I wouldnt take it when still on opiates.)

    To sum it up. I am feeling guilty for what I have done to my body. I am feeling happy that it seems like I will get through this. I have some depressing mood swings at nights. My finace thought I quit in April, right now she thinks I am going thru some serious tobacco withdrawls! I really think the detox diet and exercise, along with the Immodium AD, are carrying me through this time.

    Thanks for reading this, PLEASE, PLEASE, comment early and often, I need all the communication I can get. There is no one I know that could relate or understand what I am going through right now.

    Thanks Again.
