Hi! I've been on here off and on for the last two years trying to get off of Percocet/ Vicodin. I've been on them for 4 years, it started with a surgery and being diagnosed with endometriosis. I have tried many times to quit and it just keeps getting harder and harder. So I figured it was time to get help. I've tried to taper, that has never worked for me. I've quit cold turkey and I just can't seem to get past the first week. I have three kids and it is so hard to take care of them when I feel so miserable. Its not fair to them.
So I am going to a sub clinic tomorrow and I am so scared from what I have read about how hard that is to come off of that I don't know if I'm making the right decision. But, really I don't have anything else left to try, so I feel scared and stuck. I told them I wanted to detox and not do the maintence, I want to be on it for the shortest time possible. I just wanted to hear some stories from people that used it short term. How long were you on it, how were the w/d coming off, how long did it take to feel like yourself.
I just want my life back, this has been the worst thing ever. I never saw myself like this, how fast life can spiral out of control. Any feed back will be much appreciated, I just really need to hear from people who have been through this too, I feel so alone.:confused:

Thanks to anyone who responds!:angel:
