First, you are NOT a normal 23 year old. Jail, rehab,rollin', is not normal. If you really want off these oxy's, google "Thomas Recipe" and follow it to a T. Listen, none of us are perfect people. We all F up sometimes, me included. But it's time to grow up, kick the oxy's and get it together. I know you know how you can get some benzo's. You will need them for short term use while detoxing. Come on, you can do this! Don't waste a beautiful young life. Do you have any idea what you may be capable of in the future? Do you think about the future? If not, and you're living day to day for the high, you need to stop yourself, help yourself and get the detox going! If you need support and advice, you came to the right place. Some members may be more compassionte, others may be more "in your face" Either way, you have found THE place for support.
Stay here and google that recipe! You are 23! Strong, resilient, determined, and I know you can do this!
Let me know what you think of the Thomas Recipe ok?
My very best wishes,
Hi Joe, You and I both know that you need to stop using. If you keep using opiates you may end up on the streets... a broken junkie!!
Try loving yourself enough to get clean. You can do a cold turkey withdrawal, I did it and I am doing well. (I was prescribed Oxy's) It isn't fun, but you can do it. Definitely google the Thomas Recipe, as christine said.
Get off this shite before 'tis ten years down the tracks, and you wonder what happened to your life. After you are off the opiates for a while, you will have yourSELF back, this I promise.
Now you need the sack, nay, the balls to do this. Time to MAN UP!!
Wishing you the best,
sweetlemon P.S. Come back and post again, let us know how you are doing, many of us have done this, and quite possibly can help you!
Hi Joe, My son is 24, got strung out on oxy's. This was going along unbeknonst to me for awhile ( I was suprised because when I was his age, I was a straight out heroin addict), and I didn't see it. He finally came to me because his whole life was falling apart. His job, his girl, his living situation, and he could not stand to be sick, I am Ok with the "Thomas Recipe" and he quit his job so he could do it. I do have to add that getting clean is the easy part... staying clean is where the real work comes in and truly it is extremely difficult to do one without the other, He is currently inpatient in a drug treatment facility for men. I truly can not believe how quickly he got his health back. I see him this coming Saturday. I don't get to see him every week, but he calls me almost everyday. He is a fine young man, as I am sure you are.
Please get yourself some much needed help, there is nothing uncommon about what you are doing but it is not normal, nor is it condusive to a healthy, productive and happy life. Trust me Joe, there is nothing in the gutters but trash. I have seen it for myself. Please keep me informed, I would be happy to listen. Best of luck Fall Queen
