Opiates cold turkey 3 years of success!!!!

Well everyone, here I am three years later and not a single piece of an opiate since I went cold turkey! I have been around them and all without a single urge to indulge in my old demonic habit!! So for anyone out there reading this it can be done. It just take a few days of being uncomfortable, ok well really feeling like **** but it's very worth it!!! I'm now on five days since I quit smoking cigarettes and going through it with that but hey, no pain no gain :) God Bless everyone in the struggle!!!

great job i'm proud of you and you should be proud of yourself.  I am going to a pain management doc, tomorrow to titrate off of Fentanyl 100mcg. I have been on these patches for 4 years now and I am so sick and tired that they have a grip and controlling my life. I started these with fibro and severe DDD(degenerating disc disease) I had many steroid injections and one ablation of my L2/3 to L3-5 and S-1. After my ablations it seemed my pain changed from bone pain to nerve pain. I just want to know how you have any suggestions that may help me along with the docs suggestions to titrate off of these horrible meds.  Thank you for your time and keep up the excellent work..Hugs/Smiles   Cindi
