    Default 7 Days Clean

    Hi everyone. Like others on here I have been addicted to Percocet for the last 5 years. My story is not that different than most. Back problems led me to painkillers. I was buying them off the street and eating up to 5 Percocet 10's per day. I'm that guy that could hide it well. I went all these years with no one knowing.

    Finding and keeping pills became a second job for me. So I made the decision to get clean. I was tired of being a slave to the habit. If you really want to quit, you need to taper. I went from 4 per day, all the way down to 1 per day over 5 weeks. Always halving them so I never got that rush that my brain had become so accustom to. I just kept the withdrawals beat back. It came to a point that my body adjusted to the low dosage. It takes serious commitment.

    I'm not here to plug any product but Withdrawal Ease helped tremendously. I had tried to kick the habit cold turkey only to get so sick, I went right back to them. I am on day 7 today and I feel like I got my life back. I have my energy and self esteem back as well. The withdrawals will get better!!

    If your reading this, you are probably where I was at a week ago. You can quit! I think the key to it is tapering off. Every time I tried to quit without tapering, I went right back.

    Last thing I can say is, you will not quit until you make up your mind to kick the habit. It takes serious will power. I still had pills when I quit. I thought many times if I took just one, this pain would go away. I had my mind made up.

    Today is day 8 and I'm really feeling good. I forgot what it feels like to wake up, and not have to run to the bathroom and take pills just to feel normal. I have been living in a fog for so long.

    Conrads! Keep on with it and as everyone said, once you're off, you feel so much better. Existing reaches a normal stasis and you can focus time time into other things. Once I got off the opiates I started reading, writing and doing art and getting out more. You don't need it for happiness, promise

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm on day 9 and all is good. I just hope my energy level comes back soon. I feel great in the morning, but by noon, I'm tired. I know it's only temporary, but sure will be glad once it passes.

    As for the withdrawal ease, I think it's amazing. It made life so much easier, but like I said in my first post, I think the key to it is the tapering down.

    Hi mike congratulations for being on day 9!

    I am currently on day 8 myself but I don't think I recovered nearly as well as you have. Just curious, how do you manage the cravings, if you have any that is?

    Did you taper down drastically? I have quit 3 times now. I used Withdrawal Ease 2 of the three times. I tried to quit multiple times cold turkey only to relapse before the withdrawals subsided. I did in fact quit while I had 6 percocet left this time. On day 6 that old familiar feeling came back telling me that now that I've been clean 6 days, one wouldn't hurt. That's when I flushed the 6 I had. That is the addict in me rationalizing why I could have another one. Like I stated in my other post, I don't want to sound like i'm plugging any product, but Withdrawal Ease has helped me kick the habit twice, while being able to still work.

    I don't know the circumstances around how you quit. Did you taper off? Did you take any supplements? My cravings are still with me, my will power is very strong. I am able to afford to buy as many as I want, so I'm the worse kind of addict. I finally came to the conclusion that I will never stop taking them if I don't draw that line in the sand. My motivation is my 3 boys and my very understanding wife.

    I have found over the last couple of years, I don't want to do a lot other than work and stay home. I quit flying because I was always worried I would get caught with a bunch of pills I had no prescription for. This has made my whole family suffer.

    I know there is not a lot of traffic in this area but i'm celebrating day 13. I've had a heart attack, so i'm celebrating day 4 without smoking. I got so motivated after getting off the opiates, I'm trying to kick a 26 year smoking habit.
