sometimes it takes ruining your life before you realize how fed up you are with it, sorry bout your ski trip, i love skiing, you can do it just keep it up, whenever you gets all the muscles aches and pains just imagine you had a very strenous workout at the gym and your sore from it lol, anything to get you through, stay strong, i dont know much bout norcos, but we all can quit anything if we try hard enough

GOOD LUCK

even if you are confronted, jus dont even consider it, it feels so good to just say no, if only id known that before i got started, i had no idea how addictive these pills where when i first starting taking them, if i did id never took one lol, keep it up, i love hearing everyone success stories

Hey this must be the day for temptation. I got a phone call too. I said no. but it made me  sort of hyperventilate then I got a stomachache. My mind started going so I jumped on here. Holy cow. I though I was so far from that gripping temptation. Okay I feel better, but am going sledding with a little buddy at Buffallo Bills old hunting lodge. No phone there.

thanx i was so scared of the day i would be confronted with one, i think it felt better to turn it down than if id took it, i know the w/ds may not start over completey but i dont want to relive any of these w/ds plus taking it would have caused me such guilt and depression, which most of dont think about til weve already took it yunno, i think im finally making my way down the r2r

Great attitude!  You will get it done because you want to and you know you are worth it.  I fought cravings hard on about days 6-9 . They are still in the back ground but the memories of "hell week" are stronger.

when my addiction was right in my face my mind started racing, thinking well one cant hurt, but ive come to far to turn back, it really boosted my confidence level tremendously, finally i believe in myself and saw that i can do this, just got to stay strong and fight off the thoughts, imtired next time ones in front of you just dont take it and see how good you feel about it, it makes quitting so worth it, i already feel like im rebuilding my self-esteem, im so F***ING determined to get through this

omg my co-worker just laid a 10 right in front of me and asked me what it was she didnt know, i told her what it was and told her to get it away from me, ive come to far to give in now, first time since c/t ive had one right in front of me, and normally id asked if i could have it or buy it, god it felt great to just hand it back to her, that i think was a big step for me, actually turning 1 down

GOOD LUCK TO ALL
CONGRATS ON DAY 11 TRAVEL!!!!!!!!!

thanx i feel certain i have this beat this time around, i also think the thomas recipe helped alot, over the month of december and my several times ive quit ive gathered most the items and they do seem to make it easier, and your right i definatley dont wanna go through the first 3 days again anymore, i wouldnt even take a 5mg at this point, im sticking to aleve, xanaflex, l-tyrosine, and whatever other OTCs that seem to help

You are doing great!  Yes the phsyical part will be over very soon. Is'nt it insane that we sometimes use again and do the first 5 days over. Wow. Thats what I change my using thoughts to. UMMMM do I want to do the first 3 days again. NO WAY  
I'm so happy for you. Keep up the good work.

I was thinking about you this am. I'm finishing up day 3 on my way to day 4.  Not feeling bad, but not really ready to jump and run.  It's really cold here today, for Tx anyway, so that dosen't help matters.  Makes me want to stay under the blankie. I'm very happy for you making it to day 5!  Take care and post soon.
