Dear Fred, this must be terrible for you, being far from family and friends in a foreign country. Is there anything your American family can do for you from here to help you get back to the States? The addiction is difficult to deal with on your own, but you can slowly taper the pills down to avoid the bulk of withdrawals. I wish there was something else I could tell you but there is always hope for something good will happen and you will see your family again. I will have you in my prayers.
Hi Fred, I'm so sorry that you're alone in Syria, and addicted with no support. I think you should copy and paste this paragraph over to the Substance Abuse Forum on the left side of the Forums page, for a start. Not many people see the Expert Side of the Forum.
Also, you need to try to get involved with NA online. This is the website that you can look at. Aftercare is the most important part of sobriety, after detox. Most people cannot stay quit, or have a positive sober experience without working the steps and being involved with other's in the program, so please check this site out.
I'm so sorry that you're not with your family. I know how hard it is to be separated from family at a time like this, but you have to know that they are hoping and praying for you to make it through your detox, and get clean and sober. So if the clean part means no drugs, the sober part means no booze. It's really hard to drink and get unstuck from an addiction, so please don't think that booze will help you, it will only bring you back to your addiction, and quickly.
I'm going to private message you, so you have your first friend. You make friends that you can always have someone to talk to. It must be so stressful to be where you are right now. Please, cut and paste your question so other members can see your post. 'I'll talk to you soon.
Liz, Burlington, Ontario Canada.
