    Default If anyones out there... Looking for advice/help (opiates)

    This is my first time Posting here, I've spent a lot of time on the site over the past couple years, but am only just now making an account. A little about me, i'm a apprentice diesel mechanic waiting to go back to work, engaged, and i am addicted to opiates, mostly h. I've been on them for about 3 years now, and i've quit a few times, once for 3 months, but obviously, I failed.. I'm getting to start working again, and im so through with this disease, and I'm ready to end this once and for all. I know talkin about it is different than doing it, but I will tell you, I'm ready.

    I have no intentions of getting on suboxone nor methadone. However, I do have access to both of the drugs, and am considering starting a taper plan.. I dont know if i can handle just going cold turkey again, especially im currently living at home w my mother and siser. Is there anyone here that could possibly help me or lead me in the right direction? Theres not many people I can talk to about my situation, and even though I know I can do this, I also know I need help..
    Please let me know, and thank you...godbless

    Welcome to the forum.

    Help and support is here for you, but you must make a plan and stick closely to it. And to be successful you have to WANT THIS more than anything else in the world. If you have zero intentions of going on Suboxone or Methadone, but have both in your possession, you should get rid of all you have. It's way too tempting to try either when things get a bit rough.

    This is much too tough of a challenge to do alone. Face to face support like you'll receive in either NA or AA meetings can make the difference. This forum is awesome without a doubt. But meetings are simply better. Getting clean is the easier part to this. Remaining clean takes more work because temptations are always around us. I've been clean over 2 years and still continue with my meetings.

    Make a plan, have a positive attitude, and give it everything you have.

    Hi there..

    You can do this ..

    We have so many people on this forum at various stages of detox
    And some that have been clean for years
    That stick around and give back!

    I would suggest you make your thread on the
    Need to Talk board..

    It gets more traffic and people in similiar situations..

    The Thomas a Receipe on here
    Minus the benzo
    Is a list of supplements that really do help with opiate wds..

    I am over 2 years clean and still take many of them..

    Opiate detox usually lady's 3-5 days
    The worst being day 3 and 4..

    But it is just like having a flu..
    It passes !
    That is really good news because when you are going
    Through it ..
    It feels like it will last forever ..

    Imodium ( liquid )
    Helps because it is an opiate but does not pass through the blood brain barrier so no high
    But it binds to the other recptors in the body

    I will post the Receipe for you ..


    Tapering our drug of choice
    Is usually impossible for most of us..
    Too tempting to just take 1 extra ..

    But dome people are successful..

    When do you plan to start?

    Keep posting it really does help..
    You are not alone
    I promise!

    We will be here to support you .

    But I would definitely move my thread!
    Bette



    Here it is..
