To save you the bs.
No
:( , sorry but it will be over before you know and you can pick up your life and be happy and healthy the natural way before all this.

Best things to help induce recovery.

a simple Multi-V supp
a simple Amino Acid supp

personal experiance has shown me that, sauna's work mirracles I can honestly say it helped me feel better then anything else I did. I would put my ipod on and do the spin/cycle for as long as I could which meant a good sweat going. then sat in there for as long as possible. it was a cedar dry heat room with low humidity, but a steam room would work good as well.

each time I came out feeling great good have just been the cool air though :)

I am 8 days away from my detox vacation so getting all my supplements in order and a game plan ready. this is my 2nd relapse hoping to be my last.  Now I know what to look out for in the future though. I will be 1,500 miles away from a source of meds in the middle of nowhere with my grandma at a lake house cottage. first week will be bad physical wd's but then it becomes mental which is where I broke last time. this time I have 30 days of no way to get so will have a good chance I think of making it. Wish you luck and wish myself luck.

I think you should tell your husband by the way. think of it in depth and bring him printed out highlighted facts ands data, show him a plan and I think it will help you much more since this feeling is not going to disapear in a week.  I learned it took me 2 years to get like this and 2 weeks is not going to solve it. hopefully 3 weeks will hah but I am going to take it day by day when my trip is over.

Stay strong, but really think about telling your husband, when things start to get really tough, his support and comforting will probably do you a world of good. If for some reason you can't of just don't want to tell him, try to find someone who will support and help you through this. You didn't get to this point by yourself, Dr's and drug companies helped. You shouldn't have to go through this part alone.

Its in your head more then you think , dont be scared you will be fine, its that kind of mindset that puts us in panic relapse mode just try to live out the day as normal as possible and see where it takes you. Hell you can make your mind believe you wont have any wd symptoms and it could work. we have a smart and dumb brain between our shoulders :)

I am 135 days clean...Hydro...you can do this..I went ct...it is hell...but just hang on..The first 5 days were horrible...after that is was hard...but the wd were mostly gone..its all mental from there...My husband didnt know either...I wasnt gonna tell him...but after day 2 (he was out of town) I called him, and told him the whole story...He was soooo much help. Drink lots of water (I drank lots of green tea), eat healthy...and lots of HOT baths...I would MAKE myself take walks and exercise...it was  sooo hard, but it helps so much..Best of luck...

Hey :) day 6! I know hardly anybody believes me but thats fine with me as long as im not going through those horrible w/d symptoms Ive gone through b4 in the past...yuck! i was most scared about the w/d then getting hooked on them again. Im not gonna lie, I do get cravings once in a while but when i do I literally get on my knees and pray to God I wont relapse...he definitly has been on my side cuz theres no way after taking 9-12 pills a day for like 7 yrs ( vicodin es, started off with about 5-8 a day) Ive had not ONE w/d symptom...not even the restless arms and leggs which was the one I hated the most everytime I tried to quit. Prayer is powerfull and supernatural...I cant even believe it myself. Oh and ur totally right about the nyquil, i ran out last night and was thinking about getting another bottle until i read ur post...thanks!

another thing is that you really have to be willing to give it up. In the past when i had gone to prayer groups and had people pray for me i remember they would ask if i was ready to give it up...i would respond yes but deep down didint want to give it up and was just waiting to take the 4 pills i had in my pocket. I LOVED the way they made me feel especially when i smoked ciggs and just the thought of going a couple of days without them would get me depressed. But thank God I made the decision last week and this time I was ready to give it up...dont tell God how big your addiction is tell ur addiction how big our God is :o)
