Anyone recovering from opiate addiction

Hello I have been surfing around the forums. And everyone is very helpful here. I know we all suffer from addiction. I just wanted to see if anyone is struggling with getting off of opiates.

Hi Sticky

I am, starting day one again tomorrow, i see in your thread youve made it two weeks a couple of times, thats good ive barely made it more than a few days in 7 years.

I really want to make a go of it this time, last time i was nearly past the physical withdrawals then the mental ones got me!

I've made a lot of mistakes and lost everything over the years and thats what makes it hard, thats what im trying to blot out.

Its a vicious circle, good luck mate, hopefully we can both do it this time!

The struggle is real today. Withdrawals is horrible I'm on day 3. I've been through this many times , I had a talk with my doctor and he wants me to taper off. This will be the last prescription from him. I'm like do I lay and pray or take the pills and taper then starty day one.

Do what the Dr. tells you. Either way the hard part is after the acute withdrawals are done. Do you plan on doing meetings? You should. Look up PAWS it stands for Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome and its tough. It can be done but you're going to need to do some kind of exercise to get the brain firing correctly again. Thats why I always suggest NA or AA meetings their really helpful and they're free. A psychologist who specializes in addiction is always a good idea. Good luck to both of you we can and do recover peace Tom

Yep Iím on day 2 after getting a wee heroin habit during lockdown. I also started using crack regularly even though itís not really my thing. So a couple of weeks like that and I thankfully saw the light and stopped.

im back in the uk right now H is 25% of the price in Oz it all seemed great value for money less damaging less everything. I was having a smoke probably every other weekend then it got me again. Always does. Then you have to plan when ur gonna stop. Pretty annoying.

on espranor 8mgs taking 2-3 a day not prescribed.

i had a baaad habit 6 years ago finally quit with the help of this forum.
I used to be RedManc7 back then.

I'm sorry to see you struggling again RM, but I'm glad you made it back here, man.
