can't sleep!!!

I cannot calm my brain down.  I am going into the early morning hours of day 2 and am not feelling WD yet.  What if I wake up to hell?  It has been 27 hour not that I am counting (LOL) and I am just a little anxious.  ok alot anxious!!!  Could I possibly have weaned myself so low that I will be ok?  Or am I one of those weird ones that things will hit on day 3?  My husband is home with me for next 3 days so that makes me feel better but how do I calm my thoughts and just go with the flow?

Hi...i don't know the reasons you don't have wds but what you have now iis anxiety so.....please, calm down..whatever will happen you will ride it... you won't have suddenly horrible wds so please, deep breathing  and take a bath... it will make you feel better ! just don't wait for the worst to happen... make yourself stronger not weaker..even if you have mild wds, this is a long fight that doesn't end with wds so as for now, stay positive and enjoy that you are not feeling bad, ok ? :)

I took a hot bath and took lots of deep breaths and thought positive thoughts.  Your right, I need to stay in the moment and be glad that I feel ok for now.

Keep taking those deep breaths and warm baths.  Try and keep busy.  If you are feeling ok be extremely grateful for that!!  Dont over think all of this.  Stay positive!!         sara

Chronic, were you the one who weened to like a pill a day? If so, you probably went through most of the WD's during the ween process. You will most likely just have to fight the mental battle, may have some trouble sleeping & loose stoole but besides that you should be good to go. Stop worrying about when it will hit and be thankful it hasnt. Positive thoughts lead to Positve things! For me the worst part of WD's is the first 48 hours. If you are a full 48 hours clean and dont feel bad then you should be good to go because most if not all start to feel it by then and peak around 3-5 days.

Yes, I was the one that weaned myself down to one Norco a day.  That week of weaning was very painful physically and mentally.  I felt like I was pushing myself through a marathon and not to give up.  I am fatigued and anxious which leads to sleep issues but otherwise doing fine.  I am trying to stay positive for now on.  Lots of work ahead of me to stay sober.  No cravings for drug at this point.

You have done well so relax. The fact that you don't have any wd's other than some panic issues speaks well for what you have done to prepare for this moment in time. It's great that you have a husband who is with you too.

Good Work
