Hi,

Glad you found your way to your own post. Surely snorting them makes a difference. Doing that spikes your dose which gives you a "burst" of the medication at once while swallowing them produces a time-released effect.

Listen, you are in for a rough ride. No question. I really need to suggest that you get a plan and stick to it. Pick a day and go. Make sure there are no pills in your house, on your friends or at your drug store.

Scroll down this page and to the right you will find The Amino Acid Protocol and The Thomas Recipe. Both contains supplements that can help ease the withdrawal. You will also need Imodium (immodium) for stomach issues. Make sure that you stay hydrated and try and eat something. there is a product called "Hylands Restless Leg" that many swear by (it didn't work for me). Hot baths were a key for me and I took many of them. Get prepared for a lack of energy as well as maybe one or two weeks of sleepless nights. Everyone is different so it is hard to tell.

Keep posting and asking questions (in this post) as you go along. Stick around, this CAN be done.
