Hey Trissy,

Welcome and congratulations on deciding to get clean.  What are you getting clean from?  Opiates?  
Try not to be to worried/nervous etc about the withdrawals.  The fear of them is actually a lot worse than the actual thing.  You'll feel sick for a few days, you'll have trouble getting a good nights sleep.  If it's opiates you're quitting you'll probably get the runs etc., but that's it.  I'm sure you'd trade feeling like crap for a week or two for being clean right?

The fear of the wd's is just the addiction talking.  It's the way the drugs work on your mind.

Hey Trissy,  I honestly don't know much about coming off of methadone.  There are people on here who have been through weaning off of it that will be able to give you knowledgeable answers.  It's been slow on here for the last few months so try your best to be patient
Thank u for atleast trying and commenting something !! I appreciate it.... Thank u again
