Look, us addicts are excellent clock-watchers. So I spent the first parts of my 200mg/day Oxycontin cold turkey WD taking the OTC remedies and supplements while watching the clock just waiting for something to take the misery away. Sure, I had read the advice to keep busy. I tried watching TV, but I couldn't focus on anything.
Late in day 2, I finally decided to take a hot bath. I had read to do it, but I thought I felt too awful. SERIOUSLY. Do it!!!!
Better yet, live in that tub.
