I would suggest dropping the amount you take slowly over time until you have it out of your system. Try every 5 days cutting the amount in half. As always consult a doctor about any change in your medications of herbal therapies.

My sister was physically addicted to Vicodin (thanks to our pill-pushing family physician). She went off it over the summer (she's off in the summer because she works for a school). It took months, with feeling sick, dizzy, lethargic, etc. It wasn't like she was abusing is either, it was the amount she was taking which the doctor prescribed.

Your best bet? Talk to a doctor and find a methadone clinic.

Quitting cold turkey will actually do more harm to your body. Cutting back on how much you do would help but it will also tempt you to keep doing. If your addiction is severe, maybe you should think of rehab. I know how that sounds and I'd hate it as well but dead is never better. You are in thoughts.

No, no, no. Never just leave something which you've taken a long time just like that. Your body can go into a state of shock and you can get real sick. And besides, if you leave it just like that, maybe you'll manage to in without it for 3 or 4 days and then you'll just go back to using it.

So, gradually decrease the amount you take in so that your body can get accustomed to getting less and less until you can do without it.

thanks guys now im fully aware that weening my self off would in saftey terms be best but given the results of it the last time im not doin it again. Now as for the shock im perfectly aware of that and granted it would kinda suck im willing to take the chances and even if i do go into shock at least i can go out clean lmao i know its a lil wrong to laugh about death but hey im optimistic what can i say

Depending on the drug, you can go cold turkey and not roll over and die.

I assure you, while weening may be the ideal option, no rehab center in the world would accept a paitent and tell them to use less cocaine perday. It just doesn't work like that.

There is a high risk for relapse no matter what way you take, but the fact that you 1. are taking a way, and 2. know the last way didnt work, so trying something else...shows a great strangth and determination.

The withdrawls suck...and they will. It's your bodys way of letting you know it is not pleased one bit...but it will go away. And once the physical goes away you will need to work on the psychological addiction as well. The psychological is going to be a lot harder, but you can do it.

You got this far! =)

Congrats on sobriety, don't hesitate to mail me if you ever need to vent through this. You're going to do great, and when you aren't barfing or doubled over in pain, try some meditation and grounding to help ease the pain. Also, find anything that doesn't remind you of it and work on it...be it a painting, crossword puzzles, clay scultping. Anything.

ok to help with the sick to the stomach feeling drink some HOT peppermint tea. It'll help a lot. Also doing things that you enjoy doing to keep your mind off of it, is a great idea (it's how I quit smoking cigs).
