Im sick of the bs life having to rely on subs and not enjoy my life working out going to work and spending time with my wifey and daughter....sick to death of this. So i convinced myself its time to enjoy my summer and quit! I remember back when i was going back n forth between subs/oxys bc i was buying them all on the street and tookwhat i could get without having to deal with WD symptoms at work! So here i am after 1 str8 year of sub treatment and ready to quit....and cold turkey at that!
12mg a day sometimes 16mg.....i stop cold turkey i wait 48 hours and WD starts...i blow a bit of Opium just enough to make me feel normal...maybe a tit past that. then i was til next moringand take an 8mg sub.....i have been experiencing like to almost none of the WD symptoms and im 8 dayes in...9 tommorow morning and willnot give up! i will beat this. Just thought it was interesting that the worst of WD in this scenario was day 7 and day 8....SO FAR :P something about what i said above really confuses / changes body so that you really dont need much of either and decreases the wd symptons enough that you can tolerate work ...its worst when lying down or doing nothing...busy hands = busy jminds as you will learn in rehab WARNING WARNING WARNING! going back and forth between these two substances is bad for your heart....im a a body builder and am in gr8 shape so i figure i could withstand the stress put on my heart! this may be dangerous for many people so you have to decide for yourself on a few variables...health...and experience with hopping back n forth..... im day 9 in lik 6 hours.... i cant wait til day 14 and i can start really body building again! i need my life back...my daughter needs her daddy back! plz give me any advice on how to get thru this and stay positive...i mean how long can these symptoms really last...cant be mroe than 14 days...thats just rediculous...i heard its usually 10-14 days before your about 90% better...im at like 60% now and started at about a lil better bc it got worse on days 7 n 8.....any thoughts? experiences? suggestions? i think its a neat trick...... tell me what u think ....and how can i down these symptoms so i can sleep better. i have trazadone and a few clonzapems so i take those litely but dont really help much! i will say that blood pressure meds like lisiniprol 20 to 30 MG a day works wonders! hopoe to hear from you guys soon! i have nobody to talk to ! thanks and stay strong people!
