On and off for 10 years with 5-7 years of 35-50 mg hydro daily. I know, not a ton compared to some. On day 4 and its strange but I go from feeling "normal" (I think its normal...its been so long) to then MASSIVE craving. I had read (and HOPED!!) by day 4 I'd feel better, but honestly still craving BAD. Jittery stomach, mental focus is difficult, zero energy. I can nap almost anytime. Doing this alone as no one else in my life knows this is happening. So I get a lot of "Why you so tired?" "You sick or something"? Still have pills so they call to me, but I've been strong thus far. EDIT - Re-reading edit here... I think I've always had an addictive personality. As did my father who I watched medicate with alcohol and, I now suspect, pills back in the day. He was a great man, but I suspect he had demons I was unaware of. As are my children. One of the reasons I want to quit. I have a good wife (who is unaware or so I hope) and great kids. I'm no longer pleased with having to take something to feel "ok" an go about my day. I'm afraid to toss remaining pills but I haven't accessed them since Thursday afternoon. Conscious decision to stop....but am I committed if I still have the pills? I guess not 100% at this point... sticking with it.
