Hi there Panthro, Very sorry to hear about everything you've lost to this addiction. Sometimes hitting rock bottom is the only way to climb back up. I would be more than happy to be your friend. I don't know much about H or how to taper off of it, but I'm a good listener and I know a lot about addiction, pain and loss, and maybe, just maybe, you'll begin to see there is always hope for a much better future for you. I'm kind of stuck in limbo right now with my condition. I've been on long term opiate therapy and am VERY dependent on morphine to get me through my days. If you don't mind, I'll add you as a friend. If you add me too, you can send messages and/or post publicly here, on the open forum Welcome to drugs.com and hope you find the members here are wonderful as I have.
Read my profile. Home detox is possible, but can be very ugly, to say the least. I jumped off at 30mg from 90mg. I am a tiny woman, my body was wretched in every way. I lived, and now I live with PAWS, That to shall pass. Just gather all you have and plan a date in the near future and start tapering. Everyone is different, you know what you can handle. God Bless and Good Luck.Sable
Hey there, dont know if anyone reads this but seen as I have no-one to talk to in my life then im documenting it in here. I took 40ml Methadone in the Morning and 20mg Valium and 20mg Diazipan in the day when needed then 12 hours later I took 30ml Methadone to get to sleep. Apon waking this morning I took 20 ml of methadone and 20mg of Diazepam. (This lot may seem excessive to some people but I was injecting over 2grams of Heroin a day and since my girlfriend left me smoking a lot of Crack as well. A LOT.) I plan to try take the minumum of benzo's possible as I am fully aware they are really habit forming. I have set a dose of of approx just under 20ml Methadone for this evening and I plan on reducing by 5ml every 12 hrs until i can move across to the dihidrocodiene 60's tablets that I have and hopefully come off asap.Yes its very uncomfortable buts thats the nature of the beast.
If anyone is listening advice or help or encouragement would be amazing and very very much appriciated as I have no one at all. If anyone is bothering to read this, thanks and all the best.
I'm here and reading your posts. I don't know much about H or addiction. but I get how bad withdrawal can be from opiates - tried that this past summer and ended up on methadone. I am here for you - I added you as a friend, and am praying for you. I'll be one of your cheerleaders - keep us posted as to how you are doing, ok? Taken care - EJ
