Although you's is a general question, I think the one answer is - you have to want to stop. Very simple but true. Now having said that, that doesn't mean that just because you want to you will. The time will come when you know - you may be ashamed, tired, or just plain disgusted with yourself. I abused for over ten years. I wanted to stop many times, knew I had to, but didn't. 41 days ago I'd had it, flushed my meds and went cold turkey. I was at the point where I couldn't look at myself in the mirror anymore. That's what did it for me.   When the time comes for you, we will be here to help and support.
