Bonnie90505: This video was and still is very important to me..I hope if anything, this
will help someone to know you are NOT alone..share you experiences, not
everyone is the same. I am okay, finally seeing a new doctor, still under
pain management for my auto immune disease.
Ryan Dyess: Hang in there. I just got over severe nausea, stomach cramping, shakes,
ummmm not so much sneezing or runny nose. Im just battling the anxiety and
"couped up" feeling. This bullcrap opiate stuff isnt worth the amount of
withdrawals, im done for good.
Courten Bradford: Thank you so much!! I'm 33 and have relied on vicodin as a crutch for
emotional support and I ran out and started withdrawing, I didint even know
i was addicted as I only took four 325 pills a day..i appreciate this as
now I will have the tools to do this privately and hopefully with less
ease. Your video is the info I was looking for..love and light :)
Rachel Strothman: Very awesome! Way to go Bonnie! I know your pain as I am currently addicted
to an opiate and am going through a taper.
Bella Diamond: Im not apollogizing this lady takes all that for flare ups wow Sickening,
and what kind of influenece is she to our children, she cant handle that,
wow, she choose to take all thoose pills, Im far worse off then she can
imagine, and I DONTand alot younger, I appreciate the info, but replacing
one with another isnt the answer, making up your mind is, CHOICES
Brett Mitchell: You are a inspiration to so many. Great job.
vee mee: WOW BEING ADDICTED TO LOVE YOURSELF!!!!!' I loved that thx u so much for
that!. Hope your holding on and better.
Darrin Connor: Why do people do Norco's?. It's almost like saying, do a real drug wtf?
icatstaci77: Thank you for this video. It makes me feel better. My doc has had me on
7.5mg hydros, 8 a day since 2005 and I'm done. I want off. But I am so very
scared. I hope I am as strong as you were. Staci
Courten Bradford: I mean 23 :)
Miranda Diehl: i am going thru the same thing right now, except my doctor put me on
butrans patches for pain, and the patches dont stick like they should, and
i always end up using all my patches in the first 2 weeks, i only get 4 a
month, i have explained this to get every time i see her and nothing
changes, i also get injections in my lower back, they dont help as much as
i thought it would, but im so happy your doing so well, its a tough battle
to get thru it!!!!keep up the good work!!!!!
Jesse Penrose: I like the videos! I cold turkeyed ( nothing but water ) Pure china white
Herion and it was horrible! Vicodin withdrawls are like jet lag! u gotta
stay strong! the xanex totally help mute ur withdrawls! xanxex withdrawls
are worse! It can cause seziures! So just dont take pills!!!! lol dont
spend 500 for a gram of pure china lol
smallzabe: Bonnie great video. I hope everything is going well for you in life since
you posted this. I also made a video recently about my experience
detoxing. I will add the link for your video on mine. best wishes
Miguel Rodriguez jr: Trying too get of the 10 325 right now been trying for 4 months can't seem
to stop but I'm back at kaiser and on suboxone been 3 days now !!!! I'm up
too taking 30 to 50 pills in a day 15 at a time !!! All start when I was in
the Army hurt my back ever since then it's been all bad !!! Infantry rough
crap on your body !!!
Jim Tilley: MAJ-12/SM420: Listen If I were you I would understand you have a pain
problem, that is bigger than the pill problem, OK? Now, only you know what
is truly going on, gal/dude, and so I refuse not to note this, while I am
positive concerning your life. I do indeed know people using Vicodin, one
using Dilaudid, and I cannot judge them, although often, if anyone comes
from an illegal drug experience, s/he is always fighting with self, because
it is a difficult situation, coming from an illegal experience to a legal
and needful experience. I have yet to see (I have not read ALL the
notations), anyone using a mary jane or equivalent for chronic pain, and I
am believing doing so, because you have been authorized to by your doctor
and the Government, might indeed be the far lesser of two evil if it works
When I was a youngfella, I loved to smoke pot, and when I chose to stop
(this after a number of months daily in the morning, rolling myself a whole
ounce of pot in a brown paper bag - a Jamaican joint with an ounce therein,
just to start my day), I had no withdrawal, and no need to ever go back
Often, having had a most terrible Oxycodone experience (13 Percocet a day,
over a year or more), when going cold turkey from that, the only chaos
reducer I found, was to smoke a joint, as the night 1800h began, and that
joint helped me to get my feet on the ground for the night, a little tv,
and bed after the first 10 - 12 days of withdrawal. I finally came back to
myself, at withdrawal day 30, and although day 35 on was: "All me again as
I remembered me!" the joint a day in the evenings, helped a great deal
going through the withdrawal. Earlier in my life, I turkeyed heroin, and
it only took 10 days of hell, and so the Percocet withdrawal, was far
worse. Ask yourself: "Does my taking the opiate I need, help me to live a
better life?" and, if the answer is truthfully Yes! then stop with the
self-deprecation, and get on with it, happy you have something to help
you. I know often, I would know that one Percocet was all I needed - one 5
mg. pill; but, I would take 2 for the euphoria I knew the other 5 mg. would
give me, and that's addiction talking to me! If you ever find this
occurring, and you say to yourself, "Aw, why not?" just realize that
eventually it will be "Well, I need 10 mg., but I'll take the three, and go
for 15!" That is addiction talking, and if allowed, it will not stop!
Always take what in your heart you actually need, to be better than you
presently feel with your pain problem, and be honest with yourself! That
is the thing! Thousands of people are being honest with themselves always,
and you can be honest with yourself too. THEN, your being upset about the
present, will go away, and you can accept your truthfulness as a sign of
true maturity in using the proper amount of a drug millions are buying
Agent13022: I feel u girl im doing a cold turkey withdrawal today is my 4 day..ll
im.taking is valium for my anxiety an to calm down an Advil for pain...it

stephen cristinzio: Hey Bonnie I'm trying so hard I was taking 50 15 mg oxis a day now I'm down
to 45 oxis! I'm making progress but my funds are running out! It's costing
me 400 a day!!! Help please god damnit help
Jesse Penrose: xanex is a narcotic too so essentialy ur not fully dexoting!
BeautyIzSoThick: Wow how strong I'm withdrawaling now and I feel like I'm going to die
john murphy: I've been addicted to heroin for 20 years. I've decided to try ibogaine
treatment dr vorobiev in Europe. They put you to sleep and you don't feel
any pain. So I've been detoxed and ibogaine really helps with the
psychological addiction.The doctors are great. I feel very good.
Ryan Brooke: I had them prescribed to me for a year of severe back pain then I tore my
meniscus and my doctor won't do surgery and has taken me off them when I
need them more then ever I have no faith in doctors I don't know the logic
behind it but I don't feel helped by doctors.
Mandi Bridges: i came here by accident some how, but ive been on hydros and oxycodones for
going on 3 years and the longest i've been without is probably no more than
4 days, and those 4 days are hell! I got hurt and was prescribed it, not
knowing it was addictive or about withdrawals, i got addicted! I tried
methadone to get off, it was not good, and most recently suboxones, which
greatly help and are way cheaper but it makes my head and eyes feel real
strange, which makes me fall back onto the pills. I hate this, but I feel
good while on it, its a hard cycle/battle. i cant function without it and
feel like death the more days pass by that i dont have it. I wish i had my
normal life back. Much love and respect to the ones who beat it,
especially cold turkey, the stomach pains and restless leg syndrome with
insomnia is the worst part for me.
abalesky: You are very honest! Ive been on norco I0 /325 for the past 6 months 3-4 a
day for stage four endometriosis. I get that u have to take it. I try
through out the day to not take it but I am left with sitting on the couch
curled up in pain while my famiky and life pass me by. August is my final
surgery and hopefullg I will b off them once I am healed. Auto immune
eugene bell: I was taking two ten mil Vicodins and I thought I was addicted. I went to
a drug center and took a test and they talked with me and told me to go to
my pain doctor, I was not addicted in fact I probably needed more, the pain
I felt was from being under medicated. I have been on the double dose ever
sense and doing fine. I am praying that I never get to where that dose
doesn't work as I am allergic to Percocet. I was given too much by a
doctor over my shoulder operation and starting off I was not allergic but
later I did. Has anybody had those same occurances about getting allergic
from taking a large does of something?
BroccoliBeefed: Nothing works like Codeine. Hydrocodone and Oxycontin just make you goofy
Ryan Brooke: Ya me to they prescribed them and refused me surgery then they take away
the only thing that helps me live my day to day life and now won't do crap
but I lost my insurance so I spend my 20s laying on a heating pad all day
Jim Tilley: Clayton Thomas: Strange thing for a counselor to say! Seems like you're
saying, "You sound like a wuss, compared with what we see everyday!" You
should know that every single person's drug problem, is the largest in the
world, until they either figure it is indeed "needful with my physical
malady," or else know it was all a euphoric high from the get-go, and time
to leave it behind!
bandpassmess: I chop my 10 s 1/4 size when I get low I have trouble getting my meds
without lapse sometimes , being male I take T boost and NOS and use guided
meditation seems to work !
I have bad arthritis and stay in constant pain wish they'd pass medical
marihuana here I'd like other options !
GrowABiggerPenis: I've been on and off pill's for about 4 years. Currently taking about
160mg of Hydrocodine a day. Over the years i've built up an extreme
tolerance, so I have to take a lot now just to get high.
I filter out the Tylenol using "Cold Water Extraction" to get pure
Anyway...I hate withdrawal...so much In about 4 days i'm gonna have to
deal with it, again. BUT I've gone through it so many times, I have a
method to coming down and each time it brings new perspective to my life.
Weed helps...and I take Adaptogens and use Xanax to sleep.
Marc Vince: My pain specialist put me on 4 norco per day as a way to wean me off my
usual 8-13 tramadol per day I was getting from my primary doc. It felt too
weak, and I found I started taking BOTH the trams and the Norco for a total
of the same amount of pills or more. For me 1 Norco does not even equal 2
tramadol and the doc said the norco was stronger. What....are they afraid
to give my oxys or even percocets? He wanted to give me something better
than trams for my back pain , not weaker and I wanted less pills to take,
not more. Long story short I checked myself into a detox for 2 weeks where
they make you go cold turkey no matter what you are on. Gave me some mild
anti-depressants for sleep and muscle relaxers and such and I never had so
much pain in all my life.By day 8 I was bent over with my head on my lap
during a group session just to try to get the stress off my back. Id never
insult a group by pretending to be asleep. But I had no choice and at
night I slept maybe 45 min a night as the pain and withdrawals just got
worse. This 4 day peak and then uits downhill crap they tell us is for me
just that...crap. Now I cant even think straight with 10 tramadol a day,
2mg clonazapam, and citro-something for sleep. I want to be totally drug
free but I fear at age 55 I would die first before my body ever adjusted.
And by the way from what an outside detox nurse told me: 2 years is the new
4 days!!! In other words, to get off an opiate and also benzos it will take
8 months to feel normal, and about 2 years to actually have your brain BE
normal. OMG! I dont know how I could handle that. Plus I live alone for
now and I get too weak to even go food shopping if Im off the benzos and
tramadol for more than 3 days. I tried HTP5. gaba, amino acids,etc, all
given to me by a suboxone doctor and they did nothing over 30 days. It
didnt even help the suboxone make me feel better. I would up addicted even
worse to the suboxone than the tramadol so guess what....right back to the
Ramon David: To all those struggling out there, be STRONG! When you try to stop then get
sucked back in, don't beat yourself up about it. Build up your will power
and try again! Its not easy, but it's not impossible. Ask for God's help!
Ask for family help, but get it done! I am still trying to stop for good,
but have slipped up a few times. (Like right now) but after withdraws I
know now that life is good without it! So I'm gonna kick it for good soon.
May God be with all of us! Much love!
Gypsy Hundley: I have watched so many people I've loved, destroy their lives with
addiction. I feel like it follows me. But through the experience of being
on the other end of the spectrum, it has blessed me with a gift of
understanding and sharing my wisdom to other broken hearts in need.
Mandi Bridges: also i was reading the comments and i keep seeing the norcos being referred
to as the pills, but not all pills are norcos, norcos are specifically
hydrocodone with only 325 acetaminophen. Which to be honest, I believe are
the weakest 10 hydrocodones there are. So I always wondered how people get
addicted to taking 2 or 3 norocs a day, but i guess taking any strength for
long periods of time will cause withdrawal. I use to take 8 or 9 lortabs a
day but it would be like 10mg with 500 tylenol in it to sometimes even 650
to 700 in it, which is bad because it can harm your liver and kill you. I
also found that even though roxies aka oxycodones are stronger and maybe
more so addicting, i could just take those and go through withdrawals waaay
easier than hyrocodone, which is really weird.
Willie Bill: I see this video is somewhat old, and I hope you are still doing ok, I have
been using pain killers for 15 years, and have no trouble coming off of
vicadon percoct, ect, but for two years my doctor had me on Morphien, I
lost my insureance, and had to guet cold turcky, for over a week I could
not sleep, just sicker than a dog, thought I was realy going to die, I will
never get addicted to that stuff agane, that was a living hell.
MAJ-12/SM420: I went 19 days without sleep trying to get off of those things and after
the HELL that was withdrawl- my Drs. prescribed me MORE. Considered chronic
pain patient. Must have SOME kind of relief so, I just may be a "legal
junkie" for life. hope not. Thank you for sharing. I know how THAT is. The
name calling, the stigma, the "looks', etc.
arrow tinza: I couldnt handled it, went to my docs. I felt like I was crawling out of my
skin. Told her I quit cold turkey and she said I shouldnt do that. Its hard
on the body. But she admire me of trying. She gave me lortab. I need to
take 2 to 3 for 3 to 4 days then drop down 2 a day then 1 a day to slowly
take me off completely. Now my wife will be keeping my drugs and will give
to me accordingly. Bonnie your an awsme chik. God has given you great
strength. I have ben doin my own prayn. i put 1 for ya ;)
mitchie7344: Love you hun. My journey starts very soon... in very scared, but it must be
Lenore k: Hi, I dont get on here often so the timing is amazing lol. Thanks so much
for responding to me. I'm going to begin doing it this week, scared to
death!! I'm doing it while I have the house to myself for the month. It
might not work but I am sure going to try. I'm down to six pills a day and
hope to drop fast and see how bad my own side effects will be. Might not be
so bad, crossing fingers lol. I will surely let you know what's up. I'm
also going to get a therapist as well while doing this.
Don Dressel: Josh you are so right!!! I am taking 8-10 norcos 325-10s a day and I have
tried to cut back to end up quiting and I am having the same problems as
you! Good luck and take care Don
Bonnie90505: yes, I think back and I still have some sleep problems, but not like when I
was going through withdrawls...
Nedrick Hunch: Are you in mi?
TayDaviesRawr: Seeing your video made me really wanna quit,im a 17 year old girl and im
highly addicted to xanax,vicodin,codiene,and norco's.I was first prescribed
codiene for tooth pain and ive been addiced ever since hopefully i will
overcome this soon.
Don Dressel: congratulations!!! How long did it take you before you felt a difference? I
take 8 norcos a day for my back and even talked to my doctor about getting
off but my back is very bad and I have a very bad time without them. My
doctor did not seem to concerned with me taking 8 a day but told me he has
patients calling the day after asking for refills. great for you I am sure
it was not an easy road!
Marlene ONeill: can you help me?
Hawaii Island Recovery: Indeed, trying to get off something that you've been taking for so long
isn't easy. Medical help is even advised to avoid horrible withdrawal
arrow tinza: Ive been going thru hell. 2nd day of no pills. I need to go through this
crap. I have a wife and son. Have bad shoulder pain and back. Told myself I
need to get off this drug. Been taking 7.5 lortabs. I have been dreaming
about them. I wished I never took them!!
Bonnie90505: I was on dilaudids for a while, and I really can't say if I had any really
hard times getting off of them, but everyone is different stages. I will
only take Norco,if I need something for severe pain, but its been since
June since I had my last pill..I have spondyli arthritis, I can't walk with
out taking Enbrel, which is why I don't need the pain meds, I just traded
one drug for another..Enbrel suppresses my immune system, and could cause
cancer..so I am in a situation that sucks big time!
Kyle Burns: Hey! I could not really hear your video but listen the best I could. I am
ver proud of you for getting off these things. They ruin lives and take
over peoples lives. I have had a problem with getting off these in the
past. After every surgery the time comes to ween off and it is super hard.
Withdrawals are the worst experience I can remember. It is worse then any
flu or food poisoning I have ever had. I was taking 10/325 and fentanyl
patches before and quit cold turkey. The 1st-4th day are bad!
Isaiah Bojorquez: Good for you friend. Stay strong and how are things for you now?
