Try to stay mentally positive.  6 to 8 weeks of using shouldnt be that awful, but you never know.  Physically you will feel like shi*t for about a week, give or take.  The best advise is to just grit your teeth and get through it.  Stuff that helps:  Amino acids for detox and exercise.  Try to get as much as you can - no matter how sick you feel, it will help.  Stay postiive!    Hot baths, showers, if you have access to a sauna - great.  Stay in a hot bath as long as you can.. its really helpful.   Bottom line is - anything is possible when you are determined.  Congrats on wanting freedom and fighting for it.  Good luck.

i don't know about the w/d's you will face, cause it seems like everyone has a little bit different stuff going on but, i am on a high dose of morphine and recently ran out of my pills and i am not kidding you  when i say that you will feel like ****.  i actually thought i was gonna die and that was just day 2. thank god i got my grubby's on some from my doc but, i didn't know what i was gonna do.  please take care and maybe talk to your doctor about it before you do it.  i wouldnt wish what i went through on my worst enemy.. take care, if you have any questions about the morphine withdrawls please ask i will tell you anything you want to know.

see,we're awake now...it just takes time..when youre used to taking something that makes you feel good in a few minutes its hard to take all that time to feel better....but thats what you have to do,get healthy and the physical withdraws will be over and then you have to remember that you cant do it anymore...after i made it through i wondered why i ever did that ****,i promise you ..you get to a point where you feel good without that stuff..

Good luck with this!  I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!!!  You might experience feelings of having the worse flu in your life from the withdrawals.  You can get through the difficult part.  Follow the directions for the Thomas Recipe on the bottom right hand side of this page and you should be fine!  You'll be in my prayers!  

Hugs,
Janet
