First of all, CONGRATS! You're doing awesome. I was addicted to tramadol for 4 years, and even while tapering it was tough but manageable, and it helped a lot. Tapering is one of the best ways of getting off the pills. One of the issues people have when they go cold turkey is the symptoms can be so severe, you feel like you have no option but to reach for the box of painkillers to ease them.
You're going to have the ups and downs like everyone addicted to painkillers. What you need to watch our for, is when you're feeling down, and say "bugger it". Usually, this just leads to a relapse, and you're back at square one. You should also be careful if you're too happy. Yes, "too happy". Sometimes when we're in a good mood, we also tend to relapse, because we think "Mehhh, I'm happy today, one little pill won't harm me".
Just keep thinking about family, and use that as the anchor and support to keep you away from the pills. I think we get used to feeling good on pills, because they mellow us out, and allow us to concentrate on other tasks. They can help with so much, yet cause so much destruction in their wake, and we, those who are addicted are completely oblivious.
I wish you nothing but good luck Joanne. I'll send my prayers and positivity for both you and your family. You're doing an amazing job. Keep this up, and before you know it, you will be looking back thinking "Why the hell did I take those things".
