Hi. Why do you want to quit? It helped me quite a bit to think very clearly about WHY I was quitting. The reasons for quitting became a mantra at the worst of times, and a comfort during better times. I think understanding them will help you, Insha'Allah.

You can do this. You are strong enough to do it. You are smart enough to do it. You have recognized the problem and you are acting on it. Decide whether you wish to taoer or stop cold turkey. Look under the Health Discussion Pages (link at right hand side of page) and pay attention to the Thomas Recipe and the Amino Acid Protocol. They wull help tremendously. And good luck to you.....

Tapering worked well for me. Maybe that is the best way to do it. The slower the better. You will feel less withdrawal symptoms.

Good luck

Maybe thats the thing to do  . Cut back a little at a time. Maybe trying to go without is to much after taking it that long. Try to cut back a little every few days. Good luck to you and God bless you

No, you are not useless. Don't put yourself down! You are addicted to the stuff, that's all. It is often much more powerful than the human will. Sometimes, even the best intentions aren't enough.

But, this can still be done! You have some options.

You can give it another try. And another until you get through it. Maybe now that you have seen what it can be like you can prepare better, both mentally, psychologically, and practically (stock up on supplies: Thomas recipe, amino acids, something to help you sleep, whatever folks suggest that you think might help you).

Or you can seek professional help, depending on what's available to you (I don't know your situation).

Time to do some soul searching. Wishing the best for you.

Don't feel desperate, you can do this Northkhan.  You went 2 days without it and that is a huge start in the right direction.  Today you made a mistake and we all make the same mistakes.  Just forgive yourself, don't take anymore and move on.

Ignore the shopkeeper!  God will help you, God loves you.  

Keep posting and don't give up.  Lyn
