I have been lurking for awhile and have so much in common with many of you! I am a mommy to 2 toddlers and have a terrible norco addiction--never less than 20 per day, often up to 30. I still am considered a wonderful mom and devote all my time love and energy to them. I have tried to taper several times, but I want to try again. I found a sub detox center for 1250 they will put you through a week-long program, but I think I need to taper down first if I can, but I know I need to tell my poor husband first. Our fianances are limited and I have been doing this all behind his back. Any advice on when/how to tell him? The new year is here and it's time to come clean. I think maybe a taper with his help could work. I have too hard a time getting to na meetings without him knowing. I said maybe I would have a doctor's appointment tomorrow with my therapist (in an attempt to do an na meeting) but he wasn't buying it at all (what doctor sees patients on new year's day?). His dad is a recovering alcoholic with 30 years or recovery and service under his belt so maybe he can help. This will break my husband's heart. I started with legitimate pain issues, which I still have intermittently (kidney stones and sinusitis) but I have to take the pills now all the time now due to my physical addiction. I have about 200 pills to work with right now, but might get more. I get afraid of waking up and taking the pills because I am afraid I will just run out too soon and be stuck. My kids are my life! Any help would be greatly appreciated! This is my first time posting about this on a public forum and I'm scared to death about being found out. Anyone who can help with advice or a taper schedule for an addiction this high to start with until I can get into detox would be a great help.
