Quoting Captain Obvious:" Congrats on your sobriety. That is something to be truly proud of! UGH it made me feel awful...I can't explain the weird feeling in my skin...ahh hope I never am in enough pain to need it again!"
If I took too many of them I would get itchy all over. I would have my husband scratch my back so hard he was practically ripping my skin off. Once you have it in your system every come down gets harder. After you have taken so many in one day it's like you lose your ability to catch a buzz no matter how many you take. All it does is make you mean. (Well, it made me mean).
When I was sober one day I realized the person I had become and decided I didn't want to be that way anymore. So I quit cold turkey.
I still take pain pills for actual pain. My Craniofacialist prescribed me 10mg. of Oxycodone for my jaw pain until my splint starts doing what it is suppose to do. I do as I am told and take them as needed. At first it was hard to control myself with those but, it didn't take much for me to see why I needed to. It's easy when you reflect back on that one day when you decided to stop with what you were doing in the first place.
