runor- Not stupid at all. Tamoxifen became a sort of security blanket for me. At 5 years I took the BCI test and found I got no benefit from continuing so my MO and BS both said time to stop and I panicked! My MO suggested I treat it like AA and do it one day at a time. He gave me a 30 day supply and told me to take it home, put it with my supplements I take every day but to just not take that one pill. It really was half scary and half fun! But with each day that went by that I didn't take it, I became more comfortable in all the other ways I was trying to keep myself healthy. My MO reminded me that eating healthy, exercising daily and keeping a healthy weight actually gave me almost as much recurrence risk reduction as Tamoxifen. So that's where I turned my focus. And one day I realized I hadn't thought about Tamoxifen in weeks....so I threw it away.
