Well so many people have been worried about what they will go through when they quit taking opiates and opioids. I know its ***** to tell the truth. But its best to know your enemy and to be prepared to fight it right. I came up with about ten things that happened to me when ever I went CT(cold turkey, which I have done 20 or so times when I ran out of pills) the first week is by far the worst, the second is still bad, then each week gets better. Just remember, you can do it, but realize time is the most important thing and staying clean will only come with %100 commitment and long term determination. Also, how long and how much you were using will make the difference in how long you suffer. Plus some replacement opioids like methadone and suboxone can be worse to shake and take longer. All the more reason to avoid them at all cost,unless its absolutely neccessary(ie.IV drug users or heroin addicts) Ys teh sub doc money making system does not tell everyone the truth about what they are putting people on. Sad,very sad. lots of bad stories on quiting that ****, I am one of them. It was by far the worse thing to shake, but it can be done just takes longer. Its the price we pay to have our lives back,thats all there is too it. worth every penny now :]
Good luck and get ready to fight for your freedom...........never give in to the SOB 800 pound gorrilla on your back. you can kick its @zz if your are dedicated and prepared for the long battle ahead.
