Finished with poppies...again


Hi everyone, I was really suprised to find a site like this.

Im almost finished day 4 of my poppy detox!
When I say poppies I mean the opium type of poppy flower and I would drink a homemade tea from the pods. Has anyone heard of this kind of drug use before and more improtant can someone confirm if the detox from direct poppy consumption is a longer opiate detox than say heroin or oxy?

I used daily but for the last month I really tapered my dose.....but not enough to avoid all the WDs.

I was feeling better this morning but the WDs can back pretty bad.

Thank goodness for NA which I have been attending and I look forward to gettiing some time behind me and becoming a contributing member of this site.

I feel a little better just from typing this.

Welcome. Alcohol was my DOC but I dabbled in about anything, but not poppies. So while I cannot give you my experience I did want to welcome you.

Hi Faith,

Welcome!

I have heard of this addiction before, but can't offer any advice to you on the detox. I do hope you feel better, and please know that we do understand how hard this is.

Hi Faithalone

Glad to have you here

Like Anna, it's something I've heard of, but it lies outside my personal experience.

Our Substance Abuse forum might be another place to look for others with similar experiences too...

I am (was) a member of a junkie webiste where members posted repeatedly that the detox from poppies was much longer similar to methadone.

But I feel somewhat better and its day 4.....Im so grateful to have gone through the last 72hrs becuase everything looks so beautiful now.
