I am 20 years old and started using morphine by iv a few months ago and i am in love with the needle. my husband is on methadone and he used o be a morphine user. i am afraid to quit and it depresses me to think about it. i know itll be best for me cuz im constantly broke, gave away all my nice things, ect ect. i just need the motivation to stay off the shit.
i know all about addiction, i was addicted to soma it was awful, i would drive around naked in the middle of the night and not remember, i got a dui, and i don't even drink i took a breathalizer it came back .00, they drew blood and i was way above the limit of soma. that is when i knew i had to quit, it changed my life. don't let something bad happen before you start wean yourself off the med. please don't go cold turkey, but take it slow and wean yourself off. the withdraws will not be so bad. i'll friend you so if you ever want to talk you can send me a private email.
your friend in addiction
I agree with BRR on this,do not stop cold turkey,the wd's you will suffer will not be worth it so try taper down as best you can,i know it wont be easy but take it step by step.It will be worth it in the end,you need to give this up before it takes over your whole life,as you said yourself you've already given all your nice things away.Dont compromise your possesions or most importantly your life for drugs that could kill you if not taken as needed.
Can you go into councellling or join support group??You might need extra help on this one to quit for good and to help you cope with not going back etc.
Wish you all the best,take care,you deserve a better life then this,you are so young and there are so many oppertunities out there for your future.
Be strong you'll get through this.
Post anytime and let us know how you are doing,its a great site and so many people are going through the same or similar things,you're not alone in this.
Please seek professional help for this problem. If you really want to kick this habit, you need to pursue avenues such as using Suboxone or Methadone to overcome this. You can taper and just quit but given that you are injecting then you really may need more help. Getting professional guidance is recommended. You can google "Suboxone" and investigate local doctors who prescibe this medication. You might also consider Narcotics Anonymous to develop a support system to help you through this difficult time. They will teach you the tools to live a life free from narcotics and how to deal with the temptation that will surely rear its ugly head in the future.
We are here for you and will help you anyway we can.
