... hysterectomy and was prescribed percocet. During this whole procedure, I had difficulties so the pain was unbearable and I ran out of pills and could not get more for 3 more days. So, a "friend" gave me a bag of heroin for the pain and it was instant relief. I was dumb enough to think I could do it one more time. Well, I have very little pain anymore but I am using 5 bags a day now and I feel like a failure and a loser. I was so proud of my 7 years and so was everyone else. My boyfriend nor anyone else has any idea I'm on it so I did some about 3 hours ago and I want this to be it. I stopped methadone 90mg cold turkey 7 years ago and it was hell and last much longer than heroin w/d's but I am so nervous that I will fail. I can get away with saying I have the flu but how can I get through this alone? I have mirapex for restless leg syndrome, does anyone know if that will bring relief??? I do have 2 bags put away if it gets too intense and if he wants to do something... anything physical I guess..but I will not touch them... It's only if he starts to get suspicious..but as I said, I can get away with "the flu" cause we both work at a hospital. I have a whole week off and his is split 2 off and then 2 on and off again on the weekend. Please, is there anything I can do to ease the insomnia and sweats? I can get thru the rest... I appreciate any and all advice
I am VERY SORRY to here you relapsed! Seven years dang thats a long time): i have been clean of heroin for seven months and i have been going to the methadone clinic me and my husband my husband just did it cold turkey off methadone this weekend and said it was half as bad as the heroin withdrawals and im quitting cold turkey this weekend.Please stop doing heroin it makes me so sad when people relapse it really breaks my heart in two!!! ): Dont let the monster win! You really need to get rid of the rest of the h because you will just end up using it trust me.You have some choices here i would 1.
do it cold turkey and try to get some sleeping pills or follow the thomas recipe thats on here its a recipe for quitting cold turkey.Get some weed if your into that because it really does help ALOT with withdrawals or get spice at the smoke shop same thing as weed but its legal they sell it as insence and it looks like weed but smells like insence it helps a whole lot with withdrawals trust me and it doesnt come up in uran tests. 2.Or you can go get suboxen you cant take it until you start going into withdrawal like 24 hours after your last shot or whatever but you wont have withdrawals at all if you take that.3. You can go to the hospital and they will detox you there. I dunno some suggestions if you have any questions feel free to ask!
6 months isn't to long and 5 bags is enougfh but not as huge amount ( how did you manage to keep it down??) . Anyway, you should either dump the 2 bags or do them and then go through the 5 days of withdrawls. Unfortunately heroin causes deep depresion when you stop it but it does get better. You have done it before so you kjnow what to do and you have your husband for support. Hopefully you won't go through terrible withdrawls but everyone is different..
Remeber to drink plenty of fluids and try to eat as high a protien diet as you can. Drink gatorade if you can but stay away fromn the so called energy drinks.
Get out as soon as you can and walk. Twice a day go for a walk. Walking helps to produce endorphins which stop being produced when we abuse opiates. Hang in there and good luck... Dave
Look up the Thomas recipe on this site and call some drugs stores to see if they already have it in a kit or if they have the meds and supplements separately. You probably won't have withdrawals for an extended period of time since it hasn't been that long with this relapse. try the thomas recipe. Good Luck
I want you to know I read this and started to cry. Please just put it down. I have 2 brothers and my boyfriend. One brother is doing well. He told my mom he felt like he was slipping and he went back to NA meetings and is doing great. I can tell you for the insomnia you can take melaton that helped me I have bad insomnia. I have never used so I don't know what that is like but I know the pain u felt with the hyst.I suffer from endometrious n battle with pain almost everyday. Good luck sweety and I am thinking of u. You will make it through it sounds like you don't want to go back.
