Off to a great start. I am currently on my 88th day clean from opiates and everything else. I had a pretty serious habit for 5+ years. I finally went cold turkey and haven't looked back. It definitely takes some time to get back to normal and while I am not quite there - I feel 100% better than I did a month or two months ago. After about 2-3 wks you notice a huge difference and after 4-6wks it gets exponentially better. I suggest a healthy appetite and exercise when you can get around to that stuff. I gained about 25lbs which works for me since I was always a little skinny. I havent really exercised and that definitely hurts the recovery. I still have some fatigue and low energy, but i think some walking or light weight lifting would help. Keep up the good work - it can be done and it feels o so good!!!
