About 3 weeks.

The worst physical symptoms will be over in 5-7 days, but the trouble sleeping/odd dreams, and general malaise lasts a good while longer. The physical symptoms include:
Shaking
Fever
Sweats
Runny Nose
Chills
Random muscle twitches/movements
Nightmares
Stomach upset
Cramps
Irritation
Anger
Depression
And many more! O.o

*Warning*
If you have been taking anything greater than a very mild dose, or taking it for a long time, withdrawal from Morphine can be life threatening! According to the ER and my doctor(s), this is one drug NOT to quit without supervision!

Mild symptoms start 12-24 hours after your last dose. The 'heavy stuff' begins after that...
