Morning!

There are otc supplements that you can take that will ease the withdrawal process and you can find a lot of good information by going to the health pages at the top right of this page.

Aside from that, keep yourself mentally busy and try and exercise if you can--- a short walk will help with the aches, as crazy as that sounds.

You are almost out of woods and in a few days will be feeling physically better. Now to deal with the mental part of the addiction. I always suggest some form of aftercare. Whether it is meetings or counseling or both.

You have now learned how to GET clean...time to learn how to STAY clean.

Hang in there and listen to the advise here. There are a lot of good people here with good advise!!!

Your energy level might be low for a few months. Lack of energy is often the cause for relapse. Please be patient with yourself and don't expect too much too fast. Just know it will come back and hang in there.
Like IBK said, if you can get some exercising in, it will help a lot.
