    Hi everyone: Just wanted to introduce myself and have made a committment to this website in order to get support for making the decision to end my addiction to Hydrocodone/Vicodin.

    I originally got clean and sober from all drugs/alcohol in January of 1988. I attended AA meetings regularly, had a sponsor, hung out only with program people, worked the steps, all of it. I stayed sober for fourteen years. Then I relapsed in October of 2002 on amphetimines (my drug of choice). Picked up a white chip right away and stayed clean/sober another four years. But then had a couple of surgeries and…you guessed it; I’ve been getting hydrocodone from a couple of different doctors now for over a year; abusing the pills, all of the old addictive behavior has come back..

    I actually stopped going to meetings about a year and a half ago; started drinking a glass of wine a night. I STILL drink ONLY a glass of wine per night.

    I need to be very honest about this. I will not go back to meetings here; it’s too small of a town. I will not give up my wine at night. But I have to get off of the hydrocodone. Now.

    I’m hoping I’m in the right place. Would love to hear some feedback, support, and hopefully, help some other people here too. But I do understand this is a 12-Step Online support group and if I’m feeling that I’m being told/asked/encouraged to give up my wine at night, I’ll bug out and find anothe online support group.

    Hope all is well with everyone.:tyou
