Im a professional woman, married, middle aged and have 4 grown children. Two years ago I "discovered" vicodin and loved it right away. I've been able to hide it from everyone until my husband started to ask where I was spending money. I realized then that I was spending half my pay for it and have been for months. A month ago I really felt ashamed and I just quit. For a couple of weeks everyone kept asking if i was sick or depressed. I had to just smile and blame a bug. The withdrawal has been really hard, especially doing it in secret and alone. My husband still doesn't know. I celebrate a month clean today. Yay! But I can't tell anybody.
