Helping you to overcome heroin addiction through my own experience, strength, and hope.


How to beat Roxy addiction

How to beat roxy addiction


--> Quite a few people visit my site asking about Roxicodone so I figured it would be a good idea to do a post on it to let others know a little bit about it and how to beat roxy addiction. First of all the active ingredient in this drug is Oxycodone and it was invented in Germany in 1916, it is one of many semi synthetic opioids. The developers were trying to come up with an improved alternative to morphine. Roxicode is prescribed for moderate and severe pain.

One notable drug is Oxycodone because its huge volume of sales it is also highly sought after by drug addicts. Here are other types of this drug, Percocet, Endocet, Tylox, Roxicet with aspirin. Percodan, Endodan, Roxiprin with ibuprofen. Keep in mind that all of these drugs can cause an an addiction to oxycodone.

How to overcome roxy addiction

 I know for a fact that some people who are taking roxys for pain will become addicted to it because they do not take it as prescribed; for example, the person is in a lot of pain so instead of taking one like they are supposed to they double up and take two. Now what happens is the person will build up a tolerance and have to take more and more to get the same effect.

This is when roxy addiction takes place. If you or some one you know has become addicted like this and would like to know how to beat  roxy addiction then I would suggest that you should talk to the prescribing physician, they can give you a plan that will help taper you off of them without going through roxy withdrawal. I know that withdrawal from any type of oxycodone can be just as bad as heroin withdrawal.

If tapering off of roxies does not work for you then there is another way to stop using roxy’s and it is called oxycodone treatment. If you decide to go then you can rest assured that a staff of professionals will make sure that you suffer very little pain from your roxy withdrawal. This process will only take a few days but when you are finished I would go to residential treatment this will improve your odds of remaining drug free when you leave rehab.

Realize that you can overcome Roxicodone addiction

Roxicodone are powerful pain pills that like any other medicine one can become addicted to and many people who are also have an oxycodone addiction. Beyond the physical cravings every addict has mental thoughts that encourage use or quitting. Finding treatment isn’t always easy.

Addiction grows so rapidly it can be well under way before the dependant realizes they have a dependency. Withdrawal symptoms can include chills, sweats, and having to use the bathroom frequently. Ask yourself questions to identify the extent of your problem. Try a treatment plan based on the level of your habit. Do not be afraid to ask for help and realize whatever your addiction is there is help for you.

Medical roxy detox

If you come to the inevitable conclusion that you are in fact addicted to this drug do not worry there is plenty of help out there for you that is if you take the action to get it. What I would suggest for anyone who wants to get help to overcome oxys to find an opiate addiction rehab near you and give them a call and find out if is somewhere you would be interested in getting help for your addiction be sure to ask them if they can medically detox you from roxicodone.

How to get through roxy withdrawal

Now when you get a hold of them you can tell them you would like to come in at the earliest possible convince. Once you get there you will meet with the Dr and he will check you out to see if you are fit enough to take medications that will help with your roxy withdrawal. Next you will be taken to the detox area by a trained medical assistant who will be there day and night to help you and give you medications to help ease most of your discomfort from roxy withdrawal.

This procedure should take no more than five days. I would suggest that you do not leave rehab at this point because if you continue on with residential treatment your chances of stay clean will improve dramatically. Now keep in mind that if you do not go you will relapse I can not tell you when but I can tell you it won't be long and many use again right after leaving rehab.

Roxy's may be a gateway to heroin

I am not sure that a whole lot of folks know that roxy abuse could lead to heroin addiction.

Here is why abusing Roxicodone can lead to heroin addiction. For starters in some places Oxyconin and Oxycodone can cost $30 for just one pill. Now keep in mind that if you have been using them for a while you are going to have a tolerance and one is not going to do it for you anymore; furthermore, if you are buying them on the streets you will be in close contact with people that are selling and using heroin.

One day you may not be able to get any roxies and are starting to get sick so you decide to use some heroin and find that you can get a bag of dope for like ten bucks. Next thing you know you are telling yourself you are saving money using heroin and before you know it you are addicted to heroin.



Good luck

  1. I've been on roxy 30mgs for over a year and a half going on two. I've finally decided that this was taking over my life, etc. I got on methadone to get over the withdrawl. I did this several times and it did quit the w/d effect, as I've tried cold turkey before and that was the worst feeling ever. I didn't sleep for 5 days straight and couldn't stand still. The methadone really helped me wing off. I found myself back on it shortly tho when the methadone was gone. It was like I was bored and had to pop something. This time I told myself, NO MORE. I got on the methadone, slowly started taking little by little and then I was down to one pill a day only at night for 5 nights, then I went to half a pill at night for 3 nights and then to nothing completely. I had been off the roxy for 15 days so far to the dones and then off the dones now completely for 4 days. I felt fine today but for some dumb reason, I wanted to maybe get some more roxys, bored i guess, so I did. I contimplated all day. I made sure tho to get dones with it too so when the roxys were gone, I had something to fall back on to try to get off again. Do you think by me eating 2 or 3 tonight and no more the next day that I will still have withdrawls or should I be fine??? Any idea? Thanks for your time!

    3. Keep trying.I was clean for two years during my pregnancy and my husband and I got separated and I started using again. now I have been addicted for 7 yeasr total and sober for 2 of those 7 with countless of attempts to get clean. Only advice is to keep trying. As an addict you will relapse many times before you get it right but like you I found the need to snort something out of boredom. It has destroyed my life, my marriage and Ive become a horrible mother. I keep trying because i know in my heart one day I will succeed. And fuck u to the douche bag prior who says to control your habit. if ur an addict u cant control yourself, thats part of the addiction asshole.Dont listen to the fucking idiot and keep trying stop people like him are probably the reason you want to stay fucked up.

    4. Thank you for telling off the ass hole that is obviously pretending to be perfect! This is clearly not a post you should comment on if you do not have it in your heart to be supportive and understanding.
      As for the anonymous mom, you can do it! I know you can.
      I started off taking tab 10's. When I couldnt get them I got roxie 30's. After some time I ended up taking both of them at the same time (taking tabs too helped me to take less roxies) and now taking only roxies. I am now to a point where I really want to be done. It is going to ruin my life if I dont. I have been able to minimize myself to 30mg a day when i have to, but when I have none i give up on stopping and get more. My family assumes I am on something and bf thinks i have stopped, but still questions me. I need to get off. I dont want every one to know so in house rehab wont work for me. Does anyone know how to get off them on your own... without professional help? BTW i dont have insurance any more, so i cant really go to a doctor.

    6. i dont know if im in the right spot to leave a comment but ever since i had surgery 2 yrs ago i have been on a few different pain meds. then the devil himself showed up one day and said --here man, those vikes are nothing. try these little blue pills with either an M, A, or V on them. i was hooked instantly. when i started taking them they were 10 bucks a pop. the past yr they became 25 each. so for the past solid yr i have been taking about an avg of 3-4 30`s a day. i spent all my money, dragged people down with me, lost jobs, had fights, you name it, if it was bad then it happened. so i decided to go cold turkey. im on day 4 and i still feel very shitty. i heard a few tips on how to get through the withdrawls a little bit easier, but nothing works. its the worst feeling in the world. any real ways out there to get passed these terrible with drawls?

    8. This shit sucks. Getting high is the shit and I love it. I have horrible ADD so all I do all day is shoot up anything I can find along with most the time about 3 or 4 Roxies at a time and heroin. There is no other feeling in the world that beats it. I want to stop but I just love being high. I LOVE IT!!!! So honestly. Fuck it do whatever makes you happy haha just don't fuck with other people's lives. Getting high is my life and hopefully one day I will be able to change, but until then I guess I'm just like all you other junkies. And all you dickheads who think your better than everyone..get over yourself and get a clue. Nobody is any better than another person. Peace out people. ✌Try your best on this crazy road that we call life. Live it up but not too fast. I love you all and don't let anything get you down. Be yourself and love life. Peace.

    9. I am one of the worse addicts out there, I'm a professional so I make a descent amount of money which is the worse thing. I spend all my money on Roxy 30s . I don't know what to do, I'm a single dad now, I lost my wife 4 years back when I wasn't even doing Roxys I was on H and only doin it once maybe twice a day. Only spending 60 - 100 bucks, now Im doin 10+ roxy30 a day for over 2 years, I get sick within 10 hours of not having them. I'm fucked. I've quit H before a few times been clean for over 6 months, I started at 27yrs now it's been 10 years of hell and my life is looking worse and worse. The Roxie's are the worse shit ever they are 10 times worse then methadone or H I've been on both and been able to quit, but with these blue devils is impossible for me. We are all battling a horrible desease which all these doctors and pharmacies are getting rich from. I use to be so ambitious in life I had so much going for me, is like the devil is playing a sick joke on me, I have the best thing in my life which is my son and I can't quit for him???why god!!! If I could I would but I'm the type of person who is so good at not letting my family in on my problems , to be honest this is the first time I have talked about how I feel about my problem, I wish I had the courage to tell my family so they can help, but they will be devastated . I have alot on the line . I could lose my son and that would destroy me. If it wasn't for his mother most likely taking him from me if I went to rehab , I would of gone already, I'm in a bad situation, if I let the cat out of the bag I could lose alot, but than I could start over, I wish I had the courage!!! Thanks

    10. Hi there thanks for sharing with us

      Ya well you sure have a lot of reasons why you cant get help. Have you ever considered how your son would fell if he lost his dad of an overdoes? Now days even women do not lose there children if they are trying to get help to overcome their addiction.

      Now as far as you family goes they may be devastated but they will get over it. What if you were to get busted I am pretty sure you are not being prescribed the roxicodone not with the amount you are using. The thing with addiction things will get steadily worse so you have that to look forward to.

      If you continue to use the way the way that you are you are going to lose everything anyway or God forbid die. It happens all the time. My suggestion is for you to get help and quit using this excuse or that excuse because rather you understand it or not that's exactly what they are. I am sorry if this offends you but I let people know the bottom line.

      If you do not get help you can more than likely plan on something like this happening you will end up in the big house,the bug house, or the pine box and keep in mind that they do not have to come in this order.

      Have you ever considered going to an NA meeting they are anonymous. We have doctors, lawyers, and SEO executive that attend are meetings all the time. Face it bud you can not do this alone. All you have done is exchange one drug for another by not using heroin or methadone anymore.

      My suggestion to you is to man up and get some help as soon as possible.

    11. I'm sorry but the dude above me is WRONG. I lost my son because I checked into a rehab. cps showed up a week into my recovery. Maybe it had something to do with me going into the phyciatric part first idk. but once I got out I started using again. roxys vrought me so low. I would do anything for a pill. Almost anything. completely lost self respect. this is my 3 rd time getting clean. I'm doing the best I can. I was smoking them so sometimes in my dreams I smell it. sometimes I see pain clinics and my mind starts racing. I wish this battle wasn't. making me go crazy

  2. Thanks for sharing I would say that you should be alright that is if you do not take anymore. Next time you get urges call someone or go to a meeting because this going to happen again this much is sure. You have to fight and fighting alone does not work. I have tried that route alone numerous times.

  5. I started taking roxys, once in awhile, for my back pain since my boyfriend got them after his back surgery last year. Before I knew it I was taking one a day and now at least 2 a day, sometimes more depending on how bad my pain is after working on my feet all day. I've tried to stop but of course experienced the terrible withdrawl sypmtoms and more pain. I hate the fact that these things rule me and am disgusted with myself for having let this habit taken over me. I'm desperate to stop and plan on taking off a week from work to do so.. My plan is to just take xanax and knock myself out as much as I can to get thru the 1st couple days. I'm scared though and am terrified to go thru all this effort to do this and then to possibly slip up or something. Do you have any advice on how to make this easier or how to do this the "right" way, if there is one! I know it sounds stupid, but any advice would help at this point. Thanks for your time.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Thanks for your comment. I would not recommend trying to take the xanax. Since you are planing on taking time off work I would suggest that you go to rehab if only to detox but what ever you decide you will have to have a plan on how you intend to stay clean; for example, 12 step meetings like NA.

    Good luck

    1. I know exactly how u feel. I have been addicted to pills(percs and roxys)ever since my father passed away about 4 years ago. Its really hard to deal with. I want to stop taking pills and i have it in my mind that I can stop the only thing holding me back is the withdraws. if i had help getting through the withdraws I would never get back on them. I have tried cold turkey probly 20 or more times in the whole 4 years I have been doing them and it never works cause i get really sick and irratable. I cant sleep even though I have taken xanax,benadryl,sleep aid anything and everything nothing with put me 2 sleep. Like I cant sit still its very irratating especially if i am over some1s house they think I am on something cause I cant sit still but really thats when im not on anything. I get body cramps, it is just so painful and exausting cause I get really tired but cant sleep or my stomack hurts so bad. when i quit cold turkey every time I get to the 3rd day and I cant take it any more I give in and get roxys. It seems like every day gets worse and harder to deal with. If there were no with draws I would quit in a heartbeat. I need help but have no money or any1 to help me. It really sux. A lot of ppl on here say go to rehab or na meetings and stuff but I dont have money for rehab and NA wont help the withdraws. The only thing I need help with is getting off passing the withdraws after that I can stay clean. I absolutely dont want to do it anymore but I dont have help. Pills have ruined my life yeah I thought they helped my depression but in reality it has made it worse I am so far in a whole because of pills I dont think I will ever have a way out. Now I get more depressed than I have ever been b4. If any1 knows what will help the withdraws plz help. I do want to change but am scared. I want a better life 4 myself. and my advice 4 any1 is just dont get started cause its so hard to stop and most ppl never do........

    2. 1 more thing I honestly dont take pills to feel the high any more I only do it cause I have to so I dont have withdraws.I have been trying to take less to c if it will help but no matter what I still have withdraws. I used to love the feeling of the high but now I almost hate it because what it has done 2 my life. but I guess if I hated it that bad I would man up and deal with the withdraws. Its a lot easier said than done thats 4sure.

    3. I was on what we call thirties and you call roxies for 3 years snorting 8-12 a day paying 25-30 dollars a piece I've been clean for a little more then 5 months and its a mental battle everyday I just want to taste the drain lol but na helps do 90 meetings in 90 days, I didn't detox I just layed down on my moms floor drank like 15 gatorades a day to help get everything out fast and drank a shit ton of nyquill and of course shit 100 times an hour but if you wanna quit and change your life style then being sober has to become your life style. The salvation army adult rehabilitation center is a 6 month program FREE program inpatient that's awsome I'm in Ohio and they have it here in Dayton Columbus and cleveland or cinncinnatii. But def check it out it worked for me but remember you'll be an addict forever doesn't mean you have to use and stick with a 12 step program and na,ca, or as a drug is a drug there all the same even drinking but I hope my advice helped if anyone has ?

    4. To the first anonymous reply, i understand your dilema. For a long time i wasnt ready to stop, and lets face it if your not ready nobody can force you, you have to do it for you. When i was ready i didnt do it because i had been through withdrawls before, that was 4-5 days of hell on earth. I advise you to look into subutex/suboxone, it will help with the withdrawls. You may still fell a little under the weather but its a mild discomfort, i think no worse than having a cold. I was on vicodin then roxys for 5-6 yrs and at end/height of it i was taking 11- 15 roxys a day for at least a yr. Google those two names and you should find websites with drs in your area that can help you. My advice is preferably try to find a shrink that can perscribe it because they can help with the other underlying issues. These drugs were a lifesaver for me but u have to deal with the other issues as well as just the physical dependance if you truly want to stay clean long term. Dont fool yourself into thinking as long as i get past the initial withdrawl i will be fine because there will come a time temptation or availibility will rear its ugly head, and although you may be strong that first time will you be able to be strong subsequent times? And trust me there will be trying times ahead. Also i made sure i told anyone i knew i was going clean and didnt want them around if they couldnt support that. You cant have people in your life when you have moved on and they want to stay messed up beacuase they will eventually drag you right back down. I have the support of my family and friends and they encourage me, i hope you can have that too. Its amazing how much better you will look after just a week or two once youre off the roxys. I didnt even realize how bad i had started to look. I know this has been kind of long winded but i wanted to share my story i the hope it can help you or anyone else. At 11-15 a day its no wonder those around me was worried that i wouldnt wake up one day. Just look into the meds i mentioned and be strong. I am not going to lie it will be not be easy, the withdrawls are nothing compared to the fight aftewards to stay clean. This is my second time using these meds. Not that its an excuse for my relapse but when my father went missing and was found a week after commiting suicide as well as very disturbing findings about certain things he had been involved in, i relapsed about a month later, so always remember its going to be a lifelong fight. I plan to stay on the staight and narrow from now on, lets hope i am strong enough. So dont forget the follow up care because gettin off the pills is only half the battle. Good luck to you and anyone with the same issues, may we all stay clean and live healthy productive happy lives.

  8. Hi thanks for your comment.

    The best thing I can tell you is that even if you do get stopped you need to have a plan on how you are going to stay clean. It has been my experience that we can not stay clean alone.

    We need help I not sure whether you have tried 12 step meetings like NA or not but they do work they have been working for me for years and are still working today.

    I do know that more drugs are not the answer if you can not quit this time I would strongly suggest that you consider rehab. Then have a solid plan in place of what you intend to do to stay clean when you leave rehab.

    Good luck

  10. Well I don't know really what to tell you seems like you can find a way to get your drugs ok but you are not willing put forth any effort to get off of them... ie NA meetings rehab Sooner or later if you keep using and continue to use the amount of drugs you are taking you will probably overdose or die then what will happen to your child.

    good luck

  11. I have been takin 1 or 2 a day sometimes 3 roxys. I've gotten addicted in the last past year because of depression and loneliness I'm only 22 tho and I don't want to fuck up my life. I don't want to do it cold turkey but I don't know really what's the best schedule to taper off of them. I work 2 jobs and live alone. I have bills to pay i can't afford to miss work I never used to be like this I want to be strong again I feel so weak minded to give in like this but they jus alway made me feel better even about life.

  12. Hi thank you for your comment. Well it sounds like you are not taking a whole lot of pills this is good and you should stop now before that happens because trust me it will get a hell of a lot worse.

    Lets say you are taking 3 of them a day I would try cutting one in half and take only 2 1/2 for a few days and then take away another half pill that will be 2 a day for a few days. Keep doing it like this slowly and you will be fine.

    One more thing you are not weak you are looking to get help this makes you stronger than a lot of people. like I said earlier you are not taking that many but enough to become addicted too. You can beat this addiction if do it now.

    Good luck

  13. Hi, My son is addicted to roxys. He was violated on a court order last year before he was 18, they took him into states custody, and put him through a state program rehab, he moved through that process really quickly. I went through all the counseling all the home visits. He received his GED and got grants to go to college. He returned home attending a local community college. A month after he turned 18 they released him from states custody. During this time he really seemed to be doing well and as soon as he was released he went off the deepend. He attacked me one morning in my home after being out with his friends all night. We as a family decided it best he stay at his grandparents after that for the safety of my 3 younger children. Of course things escalated over there in a matter of a couple of weeks. He left out on his own. Then while my parents were out of town he broke into their home with a group of friends and stole some stuff. My parents have been through this from day one with me, and have always been really close with my son. We didnt hear from him for a few weeks, then I started getting phone calls and he drew me back in. I would meet him to get him something to eat, and then give him a fewbucks. He seemed clean to me at that time. Then the calls started getting more fquent down to every day. I knew I wasn't helping him by giving him money, but I didnt want him hungry. I have quit this week telling him no. Everyone in the family has decided to stick together and not give him money. My brother has found a place for him to go to get off of the roxys but my son denies needing the help. He is 18 now so we cant force him and I dont know what to do. I spend every day all day thinking about him, scared to death what is going to happen. Then he calls promising to be clean for 4 days, but he needs money to pay off people he has ripped off or he is going to be dead, I know he is just trying to get money and at the same time I feel scared he is telling the truth. I beg him to call my brother so we can take him in and he gets mad and tells me he doesn't have a problem. My whole family and I live in constant fear of having our homes broke in, dealing with the constant phone calls, promises, and then attacks of anger, I am completely lost. My whole world has been turned up side down, my other children live with this every day. I know I have to keep saying no, but at the same time I feel like I am abandoning him. Any suggestions? How can I get him to accept the help?>

  14. Thanks for your comment. I can tell you this you are doing the right thing. He sounds just like me when I was using swearing up and down I did not need help.

    I know it feels like you are abandoning him but you are not he did that to himself. I would take it a step farther and have no contact with him at all.

    He is young and it is going to take a life changing event for him to get clean. I was lock up for a long time and I used very soon after my release too.

    He is going to have to stop using for himself and that's all there is to it. I am going to send you something from the N. A. basic text read it and try to do as it says trust me its all true.


    Basic Text, p. 62

    Perhaps one of the most difficult truths we must face in our recovery is that we are as powerless over another's addiction as we are over our own. We may think that because we've had a spiritual awakening in our own lives we should be able to persuade another addict to find recovery. But there are limits to what we can do to help another addict.

    We cannot force them to stop using. We cannot give them the results of the steps or grow for them. We cannot take away their loneliness or their pain. There is nothing we can say to convince a scared addict to surrender the familiar misery of addiction for the frightening uncertainty of recovery. We cannot jump inside other peoples' skins, shift their goals, or decide for them what is best for them.

    However, if we refuse to try to exert this power over another's addiction, we may help them. They may grow if we allow them to face reality, painful though it may be. They may become more productive, by their own definition, as long as we don't try and do it for them. They can become the authority on their own lives, provided we are only authorities on our own. If we can accept all this, we can become what we were meant to be - carriers of the message, not the addict.

  16. Hi thanks for your question and congrats on your decision to stop using. Yes it is possible to beat your addiction without rehab but you will still have to do something recovery orientated.

    The thing about rehab it gives you a couple of weeks to be drug free. Then when you get out the real work begins. I take it you want to start out with the real work. I can tell you this from my experience that if you do not have a plan you will use again.

    I like to suggest to people what I know works and is still working for me and that is N.A. It has kept me clean for years now and continues to keep me clean.

    Good luck

  17. I love what your doing. I am 28f and have been taking anywhere from 3-10 a day for about 3 years. My ex had a script for his back and it all went down hill from there.I am like many of these people fed up and disgusted with myself. I make good money but have nothing to show for it. I stand all day and work with people so they help me and I'm so mentally and physically addicted. I can't take off work for rehab or detox. I've recently come across 6, 8mg suboxone and in the past I've traded roxys for methadone and I refuse to let that happen. I have a plan,like you say, to work out and get back to yoga to rebuild endorphins and get my mental right. I want to do this so bad but theres a part of me still wants them. I want to start tomorrow and need to know the best way to do so and have energy and be able to work etc. Thank you so much for listening and doing what you do.

  18. Thanks for your comment and I am glad you made up your mind to stop using. Yes there will be a part of you that want them for a while but the longer you stay clean the easier it gets. And you will one day get to the point where you have no desire at all.

    Six should be enough after 3 days the physical sickness will be over and then you will have to deal with the mental stuff like cravings.

    If you can cut them in half I would try and do that. Try one in the morning and one before bed. You can actually get them prescribed to you too. I was on them for a while myself. Yes yoga is good but I have to tell you that it will not be enough you are fighting a disease and it is very strong its doing push ups now wait for you to quit. I would suggest that you consider going to some meetings.

    Good luck and God bless

  19. Hello, I am writing on behalf of my sister who is in the midst of detoxing off of ~60mg of Roxys a day cold turkey. She is approaching the 96hr mark since her last dose and is still struggling significantly. She is a strong woman and has a great family that is supporting her decison to get clean. I plan on getting her to a meeting tomorrow but my question is, when do you predict some relief for her severe symptoms? She has all the typical ones: nausea, cramping, loose bowels, tremors & shakes, sweats, insomnia, etc. I keep feeding her positive encouraging words, but on the inside worry the detox will go on forever. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

  20. I have a friend (19f) who is now addicted to roxy, snorting and slamming, and her mother is too. My friend is ready to quit and is going through withdrawal and self-detox now, but she's so concerned with what her mother will/won't do that she's afraid to leave (they live together) and go to in-patient. Do you know of any programs designed around these special circumstances? What are the risks of relapse if she returns home?
    Thank you and God Bless.

  21. Hi thanks for you question. I am pretty sure that you could find an inpatient in your area that can help her. Now as far as her staying clean her chances are slim and none if she lives with a mother that is still using. If you have any further questions I will be glad to try and help.

    Good luck

  22. hi, im the girlfriend of a roxy addit. He has asked for help many times. the first time we both went to a NA meetings, he opened up and cried and wanted to better himself, but after 2-3 weeks i started suspecting he was doing them again. A couple of months later, he admitted he still hasnt quit and had been getting worse, doing one or more than one everyday. we went on vacation for a week so he could detox from the pills and not have any suppliers around. He was doing ok for 2-3 weeks after that but started back up with one a weeks, now he is doing them almost every day again. He really wants help but is scared. Rehab is an option but probably the last one. What are other steps that we can take? he is so restless and angry and i guess bored when he doesnt have pills

  23. I am 24 years old. I had have severe lower back pain and was introduced to Roxie's in January. They help so much, but now I need them even if my back doesn't hurt. I take 2 almost every day and I don't eat them, I crush them and snort them. I feel like such a bad person and they have so much control over me. Its been about the last 2 months that i have been using every day. I don't know how to get off them. My job is very important to me, and i do not want anybody to be aware of my addiction. I have kept it a secret so i want to kick this quietly. How do you suggest. Can i step down,what kind of success do people have with this. I think I can put up with the back pain, I didn't realize what I was getting into when i started this. It was an easy fix to feel good. I want to be off them for good and other then that I live a very clean life. I don't drink or smoke weed ever. I smoke cigarettes, but that is all. I get up at 6am every day and try to be in bed at 9. I think that exercise would help me. Right now i get tired and always think they will perk me up. They help get through a long day at work. I want to be me again so bad. Please give me your best advise, unfortunately,i cannot do the rehab. I cannot miss work, and like i said. I don't want anybody to know. I don't think I am to far gone to kick it though. Plus, they are sooooo expensive. And i don't want to get caught. That is some serious jail time.

    Thanks for your time in reading this, I will take your advise i promise. Please include some encouraging words as well. Im really bummed about this and some times think its hopeless to try. Other times I feel very powerful and think I can do it. THANKS

  24. Coburn keep up the good work. Everyone here seems to want to start a better life. I was there for 7 years pills are just the beginning. I lost alot myself and hurt my family and friends. The key is to go through your heart. You know right from wrong. I had the severe lower back pain to but to be honest I would rather deal with it. It's not as easy as it sounds trust me I know. But you need not only put your mind into it but also your heart as well. It is not a lue when you are told you can be whatever you want when you are a kid. You need to have willpower and there's no excuse because everyone is born with it. Only YOU can make this happen! Remember you body is the best thing you will ever own. Take care of it. I quit cold turkey because a wise man once told me " nothing good comes easy, if it did everyone would have it, and if everyone had it.....well nobody would want it.... So keep your heads up it's amazing what YOU , Your HEART and MIND can do!

  27. I just found out my nephew is shooting up roxys. He says he wants to quit but won't consider rehab because he is still on probabtion from other drug charges. He will go back to jail for 10 yrs for breaking parole and he only has 6 months left to go. He is living with my parent, his grandparents, and they do not know. I am afraid that if he tries to go through detox there he may get violent and hurt them. My father has pain pills in the house. Do you have any advice for me?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi there thanks for your comment

    Well he may be right about violating parole but when I was on parole in Mi my I dropped dirty and my Parole officer told me I was going to rehab or going back. This was quite a while ago but I am sure that prisons are a lot fuller now than back then. I am just saying here that he could be wrong.

    Now as far as him detoxing at his grandparents if he is prone to violence I would probably not advise it just because.

    It possible to get some over the counter medications to help with the withdrawal. get some Motrin, Benadryl to help him sleep and some diarrhea medicine. I would also get some Gator Aid this will help build up his electrolytes rehabs frequently use it.

    Tell him I said to plan the day he wants to stop and to stay awake for like 2 days with no sleep before that day. This should help him to sleep through the worst of the withdrawal. If not use the Benadryl.

    Good luck

    1. Some how, some way, Taking the time off work is going to be very important in this process. You are just masking the withdrawels with the subs and will have to deal with them at some point.
      Tell someone. A friend, a family member. Have them help you. Have them handle your money for a while, wheen u off the pills and most importantly, have them block the dealers number for you, so it would be harder to relapse. If you had to use someone elses phone to get these pills then you may think twice about it.
      Sounds easy I know, but if you can find someone you trust, its the best way to not go through it alone!!!!!!

  33. Not a whole lot you can do. The best thing I can suggest for you to do is find an NA meeting near you and go keep in mind that you will not have to share unless you want to but just surrounding yourself with other recovering addicts will take your mind off of your problem.

    Good luck

  36. Hey Bro ,

    Thanks for what you're doing. I was an occasional user and found myself addicted , been using off and on for 2 years . I cut down and quit twice already but always end up using again. I never do more than 1 -30mg roxy a day , so it's not like I have a huge tolerance . I always snort like a quarter at a time as if I snorted a half I am pretty wasted. I last used Friday the 30th and my withdrawal symptoms aren't too bad really . I just snorted @ 5 mgs to get rid of this headache . I still have 25 mg left and I also have 1 suboxon that I plan to do a quarter a day in the event I need to fight the sickness. The last 2 times I pretty much went cold turkey but I am not a big quantity user. I got the chills and diarrhea and that's about it. I am thinking that maybe I don't do enough to have severe withdrawals. What is your opinion? Seeing I have been using everyday but only a 15 to 30 mg a day habit. Cutting down to a quarter every other day for 8 days do you think the withdrawal will be minimum ? Plus at that low dosage even after I am done with the quarter a day for 8 days I have that suboxon I can do a quarter ever other day for a week as well. Barring me doing any more roxy I think I should be ok in a few weeks right? Than I need to stick to something my grandfather told me when I was young and that was , the rule of 2 , never do too much , never do it more than 2 days in a row and never do it more than 2 times a week and though he was referring to alcohol I believe it works with many addicting substances from heroin to gambling. Happy New Year and thanks again for doing what you do man !

  37. Hi there thanks for sharing

    Here's the thing about addiction it progresses as we continue to use. It may take a while but sooner or later you will be doing more than 15 to 30mg a day and it will be a heck of a lot harder to stop.

    I think you could actually just stop taking them and be fine right now maybe a little flu like symptoms but nothing major but this will more than likely happen the disease or the devil as some call it will try to get you to keep using.

    Basically your mind will play tricks on you telling you are feeling bad you can just do a little bit. This never worked for me... believe me I tried every way in the book to use successfully and never found one.

    So keep this in mind because its true....

    "One is too many and a thousand is never ever enough"

  38. Hi. I posted on jan 1 . About winging off oxy, I was doing good until yesterday . Just no energey pluse stomach cramps. I started back taken methadone x one dose of 2.5 mg and every thing was back to nml. I was 48 hrs with out any meds . I think I can do this by my self just don't know what else to do. I can't get help because of my jop . I'm a paramedic that started taken oxy due to a Fx pelvis and a jaw fx . Any advise for me to brake this addiction . @ this point I feel like if any one knows about this I will lose my jop .

  39. Hi

    Well I do not think you can do it all alone we all need help. I mean be that from God or another human being.

    Before I got clean and would get urges to use I would divert my thoughts by saying the serenity prayer over and over every time the thought came in mind you that you may have to do this a thousand times a day but it works because we can only think of one thing at a time.


    Good luck

  41. I am 37 and have been addicted to roxie's now for 2 years, if I don't get that pill atleast 1 every days I get diareah, nausea, muscled aches, I can't work, I get so depressed when I don't have a roxy I sit and make plans to commit suicide, what's worse? all my family live in another state, I live alone, I have no one to confide in, I know only using 1 or 2 a day isn't much, infact some people may laugh and say that's nothin at all, but it is somthing, addiction is addiction is addiction, and i CAN'T stop, I suffer from major depressive disorder but havn't taken any meds for that in 5 years, a roxy is like an instant antidepressant for me, If I don't have 1 I sit and contimplate suicide, it's amazing how a little blue pill can have so much control over a grown man, I have faught in many many many full contact martial art tournaments in the past and havn't feared any of the enemy that stood on the other side of the mat, I have beaten so many people into a bloody mess, but for the life of me I can not beat this damn addiction to this little blue bastard. I am so angry at the person that introduced me to this, I am more so angry at myself for being so weak minded as not being able tgo stop. for years I have had masters of karate, judo,jujitsu teach me self disapline, but I just can't stop snorting this little blue demon, it just WON'T LET GO. and at 30 dollars a piece, it has drained me financially, bills are backing up, im working 6 days a week just to make ends meet. a friend has told me about soboxen and methadone but it sounds like just another addiction waiting to happen, if you have any info on soboxen or methadone in the way that it helps to get off roxys, please share with me...

  42. Hi there thanks for sharing. I can tell you this that yes, you could possibly trade one addiction for another if you use suboxone but the thing is that its a hell of a lot easier to come off of than roxy, methadone, or heroin.

    Suboxone does work and if you use it like the Dr. tells you than you can get off roxy's. Plus it is cheaper and you could possibly get clean with them.

    Stopping is only a small part of the battle how do you intend to stay stopped you said yourself that you learned discipline and it did not help you to beat your addiction.

    I have learned the hard way that we can not get clean and stay clean alone its just that simple without help we are doomed.

    Don't pay any attention to anyone who laughs at you because they want you to keep using.

    If I were you I would probably try the suboxone you can go to the Dr and get a script for it but like I said what will you do then once you are free from drug you have to play the tape all the way through if you want to succeed.

    My suggestion to you would be to go to an NA meeting and share your story with others and they will help you to the best of their ability and they will love you until you can learn to love yourself.

    I have been clean and sober many years now and I still attend meeting but its up to you to do the footwork.

    One more thing you may want to consider getting back on your anti depressants before you do something really stupid that there is no coming back from!

    Good luck and God bless

  43. I am the mother of a 26 yr. old addict. I have absolutely no idea anymore on how to help my son with this addiction. He is loseing everything but just can't stop. He has a good job but works 6 days a week 10hrs. a day. I have encouraged him to go to N/A meetings but he has yet to go. We are getting ready to get him out of the house because his addiction is tearing us all apart. I love my son very much but I just can't live with this anymore. Any advice on how to get rehab when you are working like he is or any other options would be greatly appreciated. I will relay to him your advice...thanks!

  44. Hi

    Yes I think you are right its time for your son to go may be the best thing you ever done for him.

    First of all he will have to be willing to go to rehab. If he is most employers these days understand about addiction and will allow time off.

    He could save time and money just by attending NA that's basically a big part of what he will learn in rehab but maybe he needs to be detoxed. Not sure with the limited info.

    The best way to find one is to just call around and ask them questions.

    Good luck

  45. Thank you so much for your quick reply. I talked to him about rehab and detox he refuses. I have been trying to get him to NA but he always has an exuse why he can't. He says he only useing 2 times a week. I honestly don't know how true that is. Is getting him out of the house the right thing. I feel like if I do this I am throwing him to the wolves and setting him up for failure. I would so appreciate any insight in this from you. Sometimes being the family of an addict can be just as lonely as it is for the addict.

  46. Sounds to me like he is not through using so until he is there is nothing you can do but pray for him.

    I would lay down some rules and if he refuses to obey them by all means kick his butt out that's probably what he really needs anyway may make seek help.

    1. Hi taking suboxone is defiantly and option or but a better one is to taper to do this you could give someone you trust your medication to dole out to you each day this will keep you from taking them all.

  48. I've been taking 30 mlgs of roxis a day. sometimes two if needed. it all started because i was going through a very emotional breakup and I started taking anti depressants to help me deal with it. When the Anti depressants weren't helping like I thought they should have and my pain had yet to subside I resorted to different types of drugs roxis being the drug of choice. This has been going on since alittle before thanksgiving taking one or two a day maybe taking a one day break out of the week to just chill, relax, and detox. Now i'm realizing I need help. I'm a week and one day sober. I feel comfident about my decision but my withdraws are turning me into a crazy person. I dont reconize who i am anymore. my moods are very inconsistant and I've lost interest in hanging out with my friends and doing things I once enjoyed. I am about to start going to an out patient rehab to see what they suggest me doing. I dont think it was good to stop cold turkey. but was i using enough to talk to my doctor about methadones or suboxine?

    1. Hi thanks for sharing

      First of all you made it a week with nothing so congrats one that. With that being said I really see no reason at all for methadone or suboxone it would be just another drug you would have to quit.

      Now as far as your withdrawals go any physical withdrawal will be gone after a week so its not that; however there will be mental problems to deal with maybe outpatient will help you.

      One thing I can tell you though it will get better if you do not use because if you do the next time you stop it will be a lot worse.

      What you are going through is natural I went through it and so can you just hang on and do not use no matter what!

      I would also suggest that you speak with your doctor about your mood swings I am pretty sure they can help.

      Good luck

    2. Hey I have been DT off of roxys now for 4 days now. I actually started climbing back down the ladder to detox myself. The first day I used perc 10 for 3 days and now I am hydros for days 4 and 5. I feel like I can barley move today. I started using these for a comfort thing, because my husband committed suicide right infront of me and he was everything to me. I couldnt function til I got on these they helped me to move forward. I dont want this anymore I have only been using these for about 4 months now. I have 3 small children and cant really go anywhere to get help. Do you think with me going backwards by using perks, then hydros and then dropping off completely will make the withdraws easier. I havent had one of the roxys in about 4 days now. But for some reason I feel more horrible today than I have in the past 4 days. How long will this last for me? I wont ever touch this crap again. I have never been on anything like this before. And this is the worse pain I have ever been through and the anxiety in unreal.

  50. Hi there

    I would not keep going back and forth I would either just use the hydrocodone a few days or just quit everything altogether and be done with them.

    I do not know how many you were taking a day but it sounds as if not so many. Anyway the worst of the withdrawal should pass in around 3 days. Keep in mind if you were taking a lot of them then the withdrawal may be worse.

    Good luck

    1. i was taking about 3/4 of one every 3 hours. So it averaged about 4 a day I would say. I actually for the past 2 days have just been taking the hydros, but I can still feel the withdraws which I am sure would be alot worse if I werent taking these. I have gotten hardly no sleep for the past few days. So do you think once I drop off the hydros which will be tomorrow that I am gonna be hurting pretty bad or do you think The roxys are completely out now since it has been 5 days now?

  52. Hi well I would suggest that you try and stay awake again tonight that way when you do run out of hydro you may be able to sleep in any case you still may not be able to sleep good for a while.

    I think the hardest part of your withdrawal should be over by the time you run out of the Hydro. Keep in mind that it may still feel like a bad case of the flu; furthermore, there will defiantly be mental symptoms and they will actually try to make you believe things are worse than they are so you will continue to use.

    So do not fall for it you will be fine if you just hang in there and do not use no matter what.

    Now if you do continue to use I can just about guarantee you that things will get a whole lot worse and it will be harder to stop using the next it gets a little harder every time you can trust me on that.

    You can do it!!

  53. hi, i am a 26 year old roxy addict of 3 years.

    I got introduced to roxy about 3 years ago, a weekend fling turned into a daily thing, then i got a $30k settlement from a motorcycle accident i was involved at the end of 2009, i quickly burned through all the money spending it buying them off the street. fast forward to now, a few weeks ago i tried to quit on my own for like the 20th time. that lasted for a few days but i always caved into the pains of w/d and end up right back out scoring some off the street. I had not had any for a few days, i got a few pills, crushed one up as i snorted them from the very first time i ever had one, took a 15mg line and my heart rate went through the roof before i got done with the line, this was kind of a shock and very unusual, ive never had that kind of reaction to oxy before, for a second i thought i must have picked up a fake one but i gave it a taste before i snorted any and believe me, after taking 10,000 of those things you know how they should taste. anyhow i know it was real as it had came from a reliable source... after 10-15 mins my heart had calmed down but for the first 5 mins i thought i was going to go into cardiac arrest, i really thought "game over man" anyhow, i didnt die. i continued to use oxy for the next few days after that strange incident with no unusual effects of a racing heart, i summed it up to an isolated random occurrence. a few days later i was flat broke so i couldn't afford to buy more, again i was in withdrawal, friday came around and i got my paycheck of course i was back out to get more, crushed up half a 30mg and snort up 15mg, again my heart rate shot up to 180+bpm (i checked it this time, 30ish beats over 10 seconds on the clock) along with very uncomfortable feelings of lightheaded, weakness of body, vision faded out a bit, felt flushed or hot, felt like i was going to fall over dead actually... that was last friday, after 10-15 mins my heart had cooled back down to a normal rate. this was/is rather disturbing to me, it makes me think my body is seriously not ok with me using this drug anymore, i would really like to understand why my heart rate exploded like it did, only thing i can figure is while i am using regularly my body tolerates the abuse, but a few days of w/d and then use = heart exploding out of chest... well, last friday i went to see my parents as i know i seriously need to get myself clean and asked them to put me on lockdown (i cant trust myself with money or freedom to find oxy) they agreed as they know i have had an addiction for years now, i really do feel ready to get off this crap, i have been willing to get clean for at least a year but my will power is too weak to fight off the temptation once im neck deep in withdrawal i cave like a house of cards. ive been clean for the last 5 days, tomorrow will make 6. as horrible as i feel right now i am excited and looking forward to feeling like a normal human again. i will be on lockdown for an untold amount of time, and honestly i dont care how long i have to stay locked up in my parents house if it means i will not be able to use that crap anymore.

    i guess my biggest question is why the heck did my heart go nuts the last couple times i used while being in a w/d state??? what could that mean?? has anybody else had this happen to them? i guess it doesnt matter anymore because it scares me so much now that i feel if i ever do use it again it could very well put me 6 feet under judging from my bodies reaction the last 2 times of using while in w/d (and i am most deff in a w/d state at the moment) i am actually afraid to use anymore. honestly there could be a line of oxy sitting on the table right here in front of me and i wouldnt take it because that is how scared i am of it now...

  54. looking forward to the w/d to fade away and getting my life back, i am happy my parents agreed to do this for me and now all i can think about every day is getting back to feeling human. because of my bodies adverse reaction to the drug the last few times i now feel pretty confident that i will be able to keep away from it knowing that if i was to do it ever again it could very well be the last. ive had time to think about how much that would suck for my loved ones to burden my death and i do not want that to be my reality.

    best of luck to everyone battling this horrible addiction!

  56. I am on xanax and opiate withdrawl right now and it is terrible but i am so excited for my life afterwards. My method to ease withdrawl is to titrate down to a small dose. Xanax takes about a week of hell(please never do xanax) and is much worse than opiate withdrawl. For opiate withdrawl, get 2-3 8mg subs and when u feel like crap take half. The next day take another half. After the second day your body should be getting used to a low dose so then you can stop taking as much suboxone. Take hot showers as often as you need to, and get a loved one to massage you, it really helps! Treat yourself well, and everything in moderation.

  57. My daughter is in rehab...2 weeks so far. She wants off the drugs... But her only friends are addicts, and I have no clue when she gets out how she will make it. She was so involved with her friends... Stealing from me and family members... I don't know how to help her when she comes home... Will be worried every second.. She has no job, no college.. Couldn't keep a job and bipolar on top of everything. Any words of wisdom? Thanks

    I am addicted to roxys. Never thought I hear myself say it. I used to be a normal fun loving guy. I went through a break up with the girl I thought was my "soulmate" and got super depressed even suicidal. So I tried self medicating, alcohol, weed, xanax, tabs, whatever I could get.. Just trying to fill the void in my life that she left when she went... Then one day, a particularly bad day, I went to my dealers spot to get some blow. He saw how depressed I was and offered me a line to cheer me up. It was blue instead of white though. I loved it! Needless to say I left broke, and that was when they were 15 bucks for a 30. Skip ahead 2 years, I'm 25 yrs old, don't have anything to live for, working just to buy roxys which have since doubled in price. Can't stop because I won't be able to work, even though my job only consists of selling donuts, coffee, and ice cream usually through a drive thru window.. I'm scared of withdrawals. Last time i tried to quit i was only doing a quarter of the amount i do now, it was so terrible I thought I was going to die, the only reason I made it through without breaking down and getting a pill was because I was in jail.. Sometimes I really want to stop, I had to move out of my apartment because I couldn't afford it and still be able to get my drugs. Priorities, lol, it's not funny tho. Now I'm staying with my 93 year old grandmother. Taking care of her and my little sister are the only things keeping me from killing myself. This last week I have been really dumb, I spent over a thousand dollars on those tiny little blue pills. I currently am in debt with all my dealers to the point that they cut me off. I have no health insurance, and no money for a week and a half till I get my paycheck, and even then I owe the whole thing to my friends and family.. No one knows how bad my situation is, I always put on mask and try to smile. Sorry my thoughts are all over the place, I'm on day 2 with nothing and I feel like a crazy person. My grandma thinks I have a really bad case of the flu, so I let her think that and feed me medicine and love. My sister knows, and is supportive, but she doesn't really understand how bad it is. I have to open at work tomorrow, 4:30 am, time to make the donuts. I sure I won't have slept at all so waking up that early won't be a problem. I work the next 5 days straight. The manager is on vacation for the next week and I know no one could fill in for me. I feel hopeless.

    1. reading your comments make me want to tell you are not alone. when I come to this page it makes me realize that there are so many souls out there that are great people who have been taken down a road they never intended by this little blue pill and then dropped off to die there I am very upset that the FDA even let something of this nature into the hands of the American Public. We need to fight for better treatment centers for medical detox through our legislatures to cure this epidemic that is so rampant through our nation. Many people have no private insurance especially thos of us who have went down this terrible cycle of addiction. Because those of us that have been terrorized by it have lost everything including our jobs, pride, posessions, and anything else we may have had before it all culminated into one big shit storm. This is not a subject to be taken lightly and it needs to be brought up into a bigger spotlight before it continues to spread until it takes over our population of youth and ruins more lives and tears more families apart

    Still alive and off roxys. Today was terrible, but I made it. Just gotta believe in yourself. I look at it like this: I feel like shit but at least I feel something again. Haven't felt in a long time. The should call them feelings killers, because they don't just take away pain, they take all your feelings away.

    Staying strong, or in my case staying weak, just staying off roxys is good enough for me.

    Day 5 and still no release or relief from the withdrawals but I still havn't used, even though I did have a few chances. So, i'm proud of myself. Even though it seems like no one is reading this. Maybe what my story will help others. Hoping to get at least 3 hours of sleep tonight. Melatonin helps.

    1. I just spent the last hour on my phone to send you this message, went to send it and my phone deleted it! Soo..I'm going to try and shorten it up. First of all people are reading these and they do help. I know this helps me more than anything with these cravings. So thank you for telling your story. I am 27 and blues are my drug of choice. I have been an addict for the last 10 years, three of which I spent going to the methadone clinic. I recently decided to get clean again and after two weeks of withdraw I started feeling a little better. The first five days are HELL on earth. That is the only way to describe it. I had no choice but to work and I did. I told everyone I had the flu and just kept my mouth shut and tried to avoid looking at or talking to anyone because I just knew if I opened my mouth I would loose my shit and get fired, however I work with patients drawing blood of all things so the shaking and sweating balls made my job that much more difficult. Everyday I would cry the while way to work and I would daydream about driving my car off of the road because dying seemed PACEFUL compared to what I was going through and hey if I didn't die then at least they would rush me to the hospital and give me some pain medicine! Messed up I know but when your dope sick those are the things you think about. At least I do. The point I'm trying to make is that if you truly want to quit just know at remind yourself every minute if you have to that it's only temporary. Count down the first 6 days on the calendar. If you can make it that long the you've won. Just mentally prepare yourself for hell. Expect it, embrace it, and beat it. You will come out alot happier, stronger person with alot more money in your pocket. You will get your life back. I did find a few things to take the edge off, nothing will stop withdraws completely. L-Tyrosine 2000 mgs with B6 100 mgs will help with lifting the fog and giving you energy-purchase ay a vitamin shop. Imodium for diarrhea, dramamine for nausea and kratom for pain, sweats, and sleep-this can be bought online or at a head shop.Also if you can I would take some xanaxs for the first few days, seems to help with feeling like your insides are shaking. Just remember...this is YOUR one and only life. You CAN do this. Keep posting to. It will help you and others. Good luck to you!

  63. So I am officially the fifth day clean. How did I do it? I got screwed out of some money by an old friend and neighbor. Not a lot of money but "only a measly" twenty dollars- that's a quote from the guy who "lost" it in the 15 min it took me to get in the car, him drive to the dealer where there was nothing and (all this in front of his child and pregnant gf- she's pregnant with twins to make their FIFTH child) so I couldn't even react the way that I wanted to. So, what did I do? I gathered my anger up, was glad I had at least gotten 20 of the 40 and finally got out of his filthy ass car. On the way home, something clicked in my brain. I finally heard all the comments that had been said to me the past few weeks... and I started crying. At first I thought I was crying because I had to go to work sober, then I was crying because I was going to be late. but then something inside of me clicked. It wasn't the guy's fault that ripped me off, or anyone else's fault. It was only mine for letting this thing take hold of me. So what did I do? I got mad. I started screaming, "I HATE YOU!" over and over again- as loud as i could while i was driving. then "get out of me you demon! let go of me! i want my life back! please get off of me! I hate you! I want my fucking life back you fucking demon get OUT of me!" i haven't touched the shit since Friday the 13th. It's the 18th now, and I quit cold turkey. You guys aren't even realizing you aren't eating right, sleeping right, or living right at all because something else is piloting you. You won't eat for fear of killing your buzz, won't sleep right because you have to wake up early to hunt, and you aren't living right because you cannot possibly be able to feel life with something else "making you happy" or whatever the hell you are telling yourself to keep you going back. I had been using and struggling for 3 years. I am just now realizing how out of hand just my housekeeping had become, let alone the relationships around me. I am lucky enough to have been able to quit while my Mammie is still on this earth with me (80 years) . My boyfriend was so sick of the lies he had to endure. I guess I realized it when i got screwed over because I had been doing it to him. I realized how shitty I had been. I didn't have a huge tolerance, but still my "little" habit had been taking 1200 dollars a month- and if i had cut in half, still 600! a month! I don't know what I'm going to do yet with the money that I won't be wasting. As far as meds to help me through I bought some cheap allergy tablets to help with the sneezing, some Elations a joint drink to help my knees, some cheap sleeping tablets, some weed, some B12 (2 bucks), wal-mart had a good sale on some shit so to get clean it cost me about 10 dollars. My bowels are getting better every day. Immodium isn't for me. weirds me out. but, i'm sure it would have helped. I quit right after my man got paid and the day i got paid. with a total of about 1300 bucks in my wallet- I have quit. Yesterday so i could make it through work (my first work day) i did swallow a lorcet. I woke up today, though, feeling great. Five days, and I feel great. The first couple of days weren't that terrible. Friday when I was at walmart getting the medicine, I cried a few times- out of fear that I wouldn't be able to go through with it. I am so glad to have saved myself, i feel like I dodged a bullet.

    1. Please don't do that to her. When she is ready to quit, she will. Until then, there is NOTHING you can say or do to change her. The best thing you can do is just voice your concern to her, be a shoulder to cry on, DO NOT back her up in the corner. The last thing she wants to do is hurt the ones she loves and if she feels like that is all she's doing and she gets discouraged or depressed enough she is liable to kill herself for real. Addiction and withdraw will make you do some horrible things you would never do sober. Just be her friend and stop trying to save her. If it's to much for you, tell her that you love her with all of your heart but that her SHIT is rubbing off on you and for YOUR SAKE, you need a break from her. She will understand.

    2. I am on my 3rd day clean from blues and dones. AGAIN. I WILL beat this shit if its the death of me. But yes I can tell you what I've done to help with withdraws and honestly this helps more than ANYTHING I've tried. I went to the health department and I told the doctor that I was addicted to methadone and oxycodone and that I was ready to stop because I didn't want to loose my family.I asked her for phenergan and clonidine which I used successfully in the past but what she gave me is like magic. It stops the cramps, hot and cold sweats. She gave me BENTYL,aka miracle pill, phenergan-for nausea, ibuprofene-for pain doesn't seem to help but better than nothing, and some trazadone to help sleep. I would also get some kratom online, I go to kratomcaps.com, I think. It works wonders for pain mngmnt and sleep. Also l-tyrosine 2000 mg for energy, have to get at a health food store. Helpd to lift the fog. Hope this helps. I hardley feel like I'm detoxing just pretty tired. And trust me I know what hell it isgoing cold turkey. I would do 90 mgs of blues at a time and take 30 mg of dones.

  66. My name is Rhonda,
    I am 53 yrs old, I am in need of a hip replacement! I take about anywhere from 2 to 8 roxys a day! I decided at first I would just get on pain meds because of all the recalls they are having on the parts for hips as I had a motorcycle accident when I was 23 that killed my friend! He was 21! I stayed in the hospital for 6mos! I could not walk for 2 yrs! I also had staff that I got in the hospital,so I know a little bit about not being able to walk and a hip replacement is gonna put me down for quite sometime and I will still be on pain meds for that! I do not know what to do as I can not stand being on these pain pills! I had a daughter 24 who died on pain pills when she was 24! Not one day goes by that my heart is not breaking because she is not here! I have made it through this by Gods grace only because of my son! I pary for everybody on this list who has posted because all it takes is just one to put all or any of us down! And I will say it again only 1! NOt 2 or 3 or 10 just 1!

  67. Thanks for sharing Rhonda

    Thats right all it takes is one and its all over. One is too many and a thousand is never never enough. If anyone stops using they never have to worry about running out again that was one of my biggest fears.

  68. I don't where to begin. I myself am a recovered addict. I was stuck on roxies and crack cocaine for 5 yrs. Then one day two yrs ago I decided it was time to stop. Now I have not gone back to crack, but last yr I did get back on roxies. I quit when I found out I was pregnant with no problems (everytime I quit I quit cold turkey). Now here is the problem my boyfriend has been on roxies for a little over a year. It was taking 3-4 30s for him to get high. Then I started to notice things that led me to believe he was shooting up. And I was right, he told me instead of buying 3 or 4 if he did it this way it only took 1 - 1 1/2 now he wants to quit he hasn't done one in 4 days. The sickness is about to take over I can see him sweating hot and cold, the shakes, not being able to sit still, and not using the bathroom. What can we do for help. Mind you guys we live in a small town where they love to talk. We can't go to al anon. Or his family would find out. Please help if you can. We need guidance...

  69. I would like to keep my name anonymous,i am a 21 yr old female from California. I have been addicted to roxies off and on for 2 yrs.The first time i tried a roxy i snorted it. I absolutly LOVED IT!!!
    I felt like i was literally floating on a cloud in heaven. After my first time i didn't use much, i would snort a pill or 2 every couple of weeks...eventually i started using pretty consistsntly a pill or 2 a day. If i didnt have any or if i couldnt get my hands on any i felt sad and i wouldnt want to anything. Well about 6 months ago i got in contact with my cousin who i have grown up with.My cousin is a heroin addict and bc of this she really has no friends and doesnt keep in contact with family. She lived with her bf who is a drug dealer. One thing he just so happens to sell is roxies. Once i started going over and visiting her she would give me roxies for free,usually 10 at a time. So the past 6 months i have been snorting 1-2 a day and i also will smoke them from time to time..my life has become unmanagable and when i look in the mirror i do not know myself anymore. I have also ruined realationship's with loved ones bc of my mood swings and irratic behavior. Ive known i need to quit but its so hard. ...today is day 2 being clean. Yesterday was tough,i had all of the physical w/d symptoms..i got through it with the help of some weed and a norco right before bed. Today amazingly enough i am not feeling any of the physical symptoms. But whats killing me is the mental part of it. Now that im sober ive come back down to reality. And my life just isnt where it needs to be and that bums me out. On top of that every minute feels like an hour and every hour feels like a day. Im super bored and i dont know what to do with myself. I want that feeling back. And im tempted to hop in my car drive to my cousins and score some FREE Roxys's!!! But i know i shouldnt so i havent. Please help!!!!!!

  70. Hi

    Glad you made the decision to stop using roxy's. Hang in there I know it tough. Keep yourself busy find something to do around the house anything. It would be a shame to use and have to start over again and next time it will more than likely not be that easy.

    Good luck

  72. I am 20 years old and I have a roxy addiction. I want to get clean! How did you handle the withdrawls. I can not taper off of them because I do not have any. Is quitting cold turkey safe? I can't really go to a rehab to stay. I'd love to but it is not possible. What helps with the withdrawls? That seems to be my MAIN issue. After a while, I was not taking the pills for the high, I was taking them so I did not DT. I am not just addicted to roxys, I will take almost any opiate. Please help!

  76. I'm 19 years old,and I have come to realize I do have a problem.. Its been about a year now,where I've done 5+roxy30s a day. I quit cold turkey about 2 days ago. I'm even joining the military,they made me lose everything. I was an honor grad with an academic scholarship in a very good nursing program. These past few days have been awful. I've had chiils and been throwing up, not being able to eat. It is possible to quit on your own right? I am hurting bad, but I'm not craving them.. I've given my keys up and am sitting at the house for at least a week,after that I'll start getting back into life, I'll be going to basic in just a few months anyway. I can do it on my own though can't I?

  77. Some how, some way, Taking the time off work is going to be very important in this process. You are just masking the withdrawels with the subs and will have to deal with them at some point.
    Tell someone. A friend, a family member. Have them help you. Have them handle your money for a while, wheen u off the pills and most importantly, have them block the dealers number for you, so it would be harder to relapse. If you had to use someone elses phone to get these pills then you may think twice about it.
    Sounds easy I know, but if you can find someone you trust, its the best way to not go through it alone!!!!!!

  78. I'm not an addict myself. I'm posting in search of help for my husband. He was an addict when I met him, but I was unaware. It has been a long, hard road. He's tried the methadone clinic and the suboxone. He was clean for about 2 1/2 years. Then, he was involved in a car accident and began a pain management regiment. He has been taking roxy 30's for over a year. Now, he can't make the 90 per month last. He goes through them in about 2 weeks. I completely understand that he is hurting, but I can't afford to support his habit when he runs out. I'm at my wit's end. He thinks that I'm being insensitive and unfair, but I just want to help him. Any suggestions?
