I have been using nurofen plus for the past 8 years and it was an emergency stay in hospital, that prompted my husband to challenge me about my addiction..i had stashed 10 empty boxes in my car and he found them..he asked my daughter if she knew about my addiction and she broke down and admitted that i had used her to buy them in various chemists on a weekly basis..i was taking up to 64 tablets a day..i have now been without them for 5 days, its killing me but my mental state is improving..the physical withdrawel is hard but i know its best for me and my family, as i was heading towards overdose&death..anyone coming off these awful tablets, hang on in there as it will get better..

If you can successfully walk away from the pills then do it.

If you can't, then get to NA like millions of others do.

All the best.

Serenity Prayer
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

--- driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity.

---there are those too who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.

... I need AA more than it needs me.

--- I fight recovery tooth and nail....
I'm not used to being sane, it just doesn't seem natural.

...... According to the great spiritual teachers, ignorance does not result from what we don’t know; ignorance results from what we think we do know.

---Some think that 2+2=5 and believe it.
Some know that 2+2=4 and can't stand it.

--- I didn't have a very happy childhood
but I sure am having a long one !

---Dry since 1989
working daily on getting/staying SOBER.

---If you want to drink, that's your business
...If you want to quit, that's AA's business.

... Tell me, I'll forget;
... Show me, I'll remember;
... Engage me, I'll understand.

---Most problems are psychological.
Most solutions are spiritual .
