I did this to get off heroin. It worked like a charm.
No substituting will get you clean. You're still going to have to face withdrawal after the few days. If that worked, it would be recommended by everyone and there would be no detox. Besides, thats like killing a fly with a hammer. You are taking even harder stuff to ease your addiction. Insanity. Stop the pain pills, go through withdrawal and get into aftercare. That's all there is and it works.
Taking methadone will ease your withdrawals. Some people think you need to go cold turkey and suffer. I hate to suffer. I felt a little tired after I used the methadone but that is the only thing I felt coming off heroin. I didn't have any withdrawal from the short term use of methadone.
Again, you will still be in withdrawal after "a few days" of methadone. Are you willing to bite the bullet to get clean? That's the question you need to be asking yourself. I would talk to as many people that have a good chunk of clean time. You'll notice the answers are always the same. Good to you:)
I agree . I wish I would have just said screw it and endured it from the get go. My palms and feet are soaked and freezing I can't stop cleaning and although I haven't felt like doing anything I forced myself out of the house this morning with our four year old he was the only one awake with me and we went and got something to eat and to the store to get something and him a new matchbox car. I've cleaned my entire house with the help of a monster energy now he is gone with his grandmother and I have my two yr old and five yr old. My five yr old likes to jut play Xbox but my two yr old keeps me on my toes I love them all with all my heart and idk what I'd do if I ever lost them or if they ever lost me . When I think about this I really hate myself and when I feel like this I hate myself even more bc normally we r always up doing something together and now here I am stuck on this couch again feeling sorry for myself. Made my kids some rice crispy treats turned on YouTube on our tv and said have it. How much longer til I start to feel better after taking the methadone for two days? Didn't have any yesterday or today though. Only took it wed and Thurs.
How are you doing today??
