You should start feeling better by day 7. The physical withdrawals are gone for most within 30 days. The mental part continues for life but does get better with time. Do you have a program for aftercare? AA/NA meetings, group therapy, counseling?

Counseling should be safe...  Nobody knows why you're there, and they can't just go rattling off to anyone about you.  Concerning NA meetings, do you have another town nearby?

Hope it helps.

If you are a Nurse you sort of have an advantage, I would think. We have a few other Nurses on the Forum and if its okay I will give them a heads up for communication with you. Doesnt make it any easier physically to be a Nurse. The computer gives you some options. There are online meetings. And you may use the Net at any time you wish, like you are doing here at medhelp. Knowledge is power with this situation. Try 800mg Ibuprophen for the back pain. Try some banana's for food and for potassium (for cramps..).  Look into some of the information open to you through medhelp's Health Discussion's pages....particularly the Thomas Recipe and more importantly the Amino Acid Protocols.  Post any questions that you may have AFTER reading those (think 5-HTP & Theanine & L-Tyrosine) and thinking about your PERSONAL requirements........Plenty of routes to wander, but easier with more information.  And its stuff that you need to know tomorrow if you do not need to know this minute.  Plenty of experience here and lots of help available for you.  And good luck with all.   eagle
