    Default ONE WEEK OFF HYDRO

    hey all
    some of you have been following my story
    i have a thread...finally made the call
    and i have posted over in the bup/sub forum too

    but i just need to give myself a little pat on the back today
    i am one week clean
    sub schedule
    mon-sun
    12,6,5,4,4,3..none today...so far

    sub is great for a rapid detox
    since i do NOT like how it makes me feel, i don't think i could get addicted to it unless i wanted to be sick and nauseous and dizzy all the time...AND I DON'T

    so here's to me
    and you all for getting me here
    as some of you know, i am on vacation at the beach and somehow got online wireless, even tho i am in a private cottage with no wifi
    guess GOD finally got a router!!!
    but here i am ...posting to you before i head to the beach
    because i need to...i need to know that those of you clean...have made it thru this weekend
    and that those of you who haven't...can read my tale and know that it is possible
    i dont know why my email isnt showing up...but i am going to try to fix that...anyone who needs help or wants to know more about sub or my hydro addiction and how i managed to stay off them for a week. please email
    good lord...i just realized that i would have put 120 10/325s in my body during the past 7 days
    yes you heard me right ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FRIGGIN PILLS
    but i didn't put nary a one in this wonderful body GOD gave me to take care of
    i am more patient
    i wake up happy...not angry...hydro rage is a killer
    i am naturally tired at night
    i have done lots of stuff with my kids this week
    i have cleaned my entire house and redecorated my bedrrom
    i have worked my butt off and closed to deals...for many thousands of dollars, thank you very much...lol
    so it IS possible
    you dont need to be bedridden
    or sick
    if i can do it...ANYONE can do it

    i posted this under my other thread...i finally made the call
    but i think i will start posting here from now on
    as i am so far past making the call....
    here's where i am and a couple of questions for you all


    hey all
    its monday morning
    i didnt take any sub on sun
    and i feel great
    its almost 48 hrs since ive taken any
    and its the start of the second week of my life without hydrocodone

    question
    i shouldn't have any hydro withdrawals left in me since it's been 8 days right?

    and
    i only took sub for 6 days 12,6,5,4,4,3mgs
    so i shouldn't have any withdrawals from that either right?

    so really
    today
    is my second day totally clean
    no sub since sat
    no hydro since LAST sunday

    how am i doin?

    have a great day all!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Dreama:
    I hope you do not have any w/d from the sub but it took about two days before the w/d's set in for me after I had stopped. I did a quick one week taper just like you and I had all the w/d symptoms except stomach issues. Everyone is different however and I hope you are one of the people that can do this without all the pain. Good luck and let us know how you are.

    hi all
    today i took 2mgs this afternoon
    i was feeling very jumpy and having bad thoughts
    dont know if it is the wellbutrin, as i just started that on thurs
    or the ultram...i found 5 that are about 4 yrs old...funny i never got into taking other pills but hydro
    anyway with my period i took one ultram last night and one this morning
    so that may have got my body in an uproar
    whatever it was
    2mgs of sub and ive been good for the last 9 hrs or so

    slow and steady wins the race...right?

    my sub schedule so far
    12,6,5,4,4,3,0,2
    5 minutes and i will start day nine hydro free
    i NEVER would have believed this 2 weeks ago
    or even 4 yrs ago
    THANK YOU GOD
    thank you forum friends
    i feel so lucky
    i wish you all the luck that i have somehow stumbled upon

    if you are going thru this or want to
    MAKE THAT CALL!
    dont take more than 6mgs the first day, then immediatly go down on day 2..etc
    STAY BUSY...DON'T CRAWL IN BED AND TELL YOURSELF THAT YOU ARE DETOXING...IT WILL BE WORSE
    listen to your body
    if you want something...have a craving...then eat..fruit...chocolate..ice cream....cream of wheat and toast...comfort foods...drink arizona rx stress tea
    read a good book
    get out of your house
    stay away from triggers
    go stay in a hotel for a couple of days if you can
    swim in a pool or the ocean or your bathtub
    look into the eyes of your children (or parents or spouse) and know that they want you to live a long long life
    go sit in the sunshine
    enjoy the wind on your skin
    the sun on your face
    sleep when you are tired...**** the world..take a nap whenever you want to
    keep yourself clean, bathed, make up, cute clothes..you will feel better if you look good
    drive your car with the top down or windows down and the radio blaring whatever music you enjoy
    go shopping with money you would have spent on dope
    buy new sheets and pillows and quilt for your bed
    buy yourself some flowers
    cook a meal for someone you love
    smile at a stranger
    let someone in front of you in the store...or in traffic
    say hello to an old lady who might not have spoken to anyone in days
    pray
    pray
    pray
    type here whenever you need to
    read here whenever you can
    know that many here pray for all members daily....know that i am praying for you RIGHT NOW

    may you wake with a smile on your face, a plan in your mindm and love in your heart

    Dear Dreama:
    My sub schedule was as follows first day 6mg,day two 4mg, day 3 2mg, day 4 2mg, day 5 1mg and then nothing. I had chills and restless legs. I couldn't sleep and the depression and being so lethargic was terrible. Just as I was starting to feel better I started playing with the pills again. I thought I could handle it. Well guess what I couldn't. Its now been about a year since my relapse and I am starting to taper. I want to try it this way first. If it doesn't work I still have 18 2mg of sub I can use. I have heard other people say if you can taper it is the way to go and I just didn't have a good experience with the sub last time. I am saying a big prayer for you and I know you can do this, so can I.

    I agree you are doing REALLY well. I really agree with what everyone has been saying in less is more...as for you needing it every couple of days, so what?????? It is ALOT better than the stage you were at two weeks ago.....
    You are doing awesome, keep it up

    TODAY i ended up taking 8mgs total
    just like hydro
    the more you take in a day, the more you need...at least for me...at least for today
    but good golly miss molly
    10 days ago today
    i was probably on my 15th hydro of the day and getting ready to take 3 more so i could finish dinner and do some laundry...oh yeah and a dose at 10pm to watch boston legal
    today i am clean of hydrocodone
    i want to be off the sub
    but baby steps
    one thing that is really sucking
    i am gaining weight
    eating like a pig
    i did just start my period so thats good for 5 lbs or so
    but i just keep eating
    comfort foods mostly
    and......i just thought of this today....i dont think i have had a bm since i started these
    of course the week before i had the stomach flu for a full 8 days...diarrhea bad...so ...dont know what the deal is
    but as much as i have been eating lately, i have probably eaten about 36 meals without a bm
    cant be healthy
    any suggestions?
    i just ate a whole bowl of fresh fruit from publix

    little hint for others in detox
    jif peanut butter and smuckers grape JAM with wonder bread...takes away the w/d's and cravings..for a few minutes at least!!!!!

    may you wake with a smile on your face, a plan in your mind and love in your heart
