Hi wotooly, How many of the li'l devils are you snorting? Sounds like you have a lot of reasons to quit opiates. Your children, work, posessions, your sense of self are all on the line here. Can't you go to rehab? Can you afford to see a doctor about Suboxone?
Ye can't live like a junkie... you could end up on the street!! I feel very bad for you, 'tis not easy to quit opiates, but it can be done.
Do you have family that will support you if you decide to get off the junk? Is there anyone that will watch after your children?
I wish you all the best,
I don't have regular computer access or I would have commented sooner. Please google the Thomas recipe opiate withdrawal for the journal Thomas wrote on his quest to stop opiates and the recipe of over the counter medications and supplements that he used for the symptoms of withdrawal. I know you are in an especially tough situation. I will say some Huge Prayers for you and your kids. Have someone ask a pharmacist in your area if there are any low or no cost programs for people trying to quit opiates. Sometimes there are, but, because the need is so great and so many people have the same problem several times, they keep the info quiet, to avoid a flood of people asking for those programs. Suboxone ( it is an opiate replacement) might be an option for you. It can be expensive, but, it also works. Go to the suboxone homepage and find the doctor locator and put your city in. It has to be prescribed by a doctor who has take the suboxone course, not just any doctor can prescribe it. Call ALL of the doctors on the list for your area, ask about induction fees ( there is often a fee up front to put you on suboxone) office visit fees, how often the doctor will require you to come in. You will have to go into withdrawl for at least 24 hours before the suboxone will work and not send you into precipitated withdrawal( really bad withdrawal) but that is the last time you will have to go thru withdrawal if you want it to be. Go to YouTube and check out SuboxDoc. He is Dr. Jeffrey Junig and he has several vids on suboxone, a website, and a forum where you can ask him questions. He does accept donations for doing this. I don't have all the answers by far, but, I wanted to at least let you know of a couple of options that might help. Good Luck. Ps, You would be able to go to work the day of or the day after your suboxone induction, personally, I recommend taking the withdrawal day and the induction day off and take a trusted friend or family member with you for support.
