Hey there!! Well I definitely agree with the F this drug comment, lol!! I too got highly addicted to trams, around 50-60 pills per day (3000mg), it was total heck coming off of it, my physical wds lasted about 30 days, while the mental wds lasted a lot longer, 6 months or more, but I really didn't start to feel like myself mentally for a year or so. Don't give up, it will get better. It takes a while for our brains to heal, but it will heal!! Just keep doing what your doing. You'll probably have good days and bad days, the wds tend to come in waves for a little while. Proud of ya for quitting cold turkey, i too quit cold turkey, hardest thing I ever did!! Hang in there, your doing great!!
I love your post!!! You're so doing the damn thing!!!
You are right where you're supposed to be....the mental takes a bit longer than the physical. Also, every drug is different....my last doc was suboxone, and i quit cold turkey as well (24mg per day for roughly 7 years).....for 3 years...your on day 6...keep it in perspective. It was told to me early on....your not going to do years of damage to your body, brain, psyche and get better in a few days. Its going to be a process. Eat REALLY WELL!!! I cant stress this enough...foods high in amino acids...this helps the brain. The vitamims your taking now...continue them for at least 3/4 months....excercise as much as u can....i was a slug for quite sometime but the drive your using to push yourself through what your doing now, use that to walk around the block!
I am an addict....have been for many years on many different drugs.....i also went to n/a before i was finished detoxing.....found ALOT of physical relief in my brain by listening to other addicts. Just food for thought...
hope your doing well the next week or so you should start getting back together..
never look back just keep looking forward by this weekend you should feel like a new person..
I hope you are still doing okay. I think it can take awhile and you have good and bad days .
Hey guys...just shooting an update.
It's been 3 weeks now since I cold-turkeyed tram and I am definitely in the clear. I feel about 90% physically and the feelings of despair and doom seem to be far less frequent, though they do still exist.
I'm not a regular marijuana user or advocate, but I did smoke every night before bed the first week and it seemed to at least allow me to sleep 4 hours or so (though they were rough).
Another thing that seemed to help drastically (for me anyways) was the gym and eating clean. I continued my gym routine the entire time through withdrawals and though it wasn't fun, I always felt better burning some endorphins.
This **** is definitely not a joke. I'm lucky to have a decent support network around me. I could not imagine going through the anti-depressant portion of tram withdrawal without being able to talk to somebody.
Thanks for the great update! Exercise and eating right is very good for you and you are reaping the benefits now. I am glad to hear you have a good support system.
Congrats on 3 weeks!!
