Anyone wants to get off opiates with me?


Hello, i started using tramadol 4 months ago and now i need to quit. I just moved to la so i dont know too many ppl here that could help me with that sort of a problem at least. I need someone that can understand what im going trough, so we could help eachother go through each terrible day of withdrals. Is there someone who wants to do this together?

This is my day 2 night of no sleep because of restless legs. I went off cold turkey yesterday

Hi ChloeC, I am on day 21 after going CT on opiates. I would be more than willing to talk to you and help you through it the best I can.
Have you talked to a doctor about stopping? Going CT can be very dangerous especially with tramadol.
Good job on day 2 and I am sorry about the RLS that is probably the worst WD symptom for me.

Hey thanx guys
No i havent talked to the doctor, i just feel like taping down would lead to me just relapsing and taking more than i need. My friend suggested that hed take me to an urgent care, do you think that would be any good? Could they help in some way?

Hi Chloe and welcome to SR As has been suggested you are better off with those who have been through. My last withdrawals where in a padded cell in a prison hospital not good but I survived and I never want to go back there. I hang around SR meetings and hope you will hang around too.
