withdrawals

Now on day 4 i have no craving for a roxy,thanks to the xanax that i have. I have also deleted my contact for them from my phone. I'm feeling pretty good,I'm sure that's the effects from the xanax. I'm just worried if i should go to  work in the morning. How long do the withdrawals usually last

If you feel okay, then sure, try going to work: if you begin to fill ill, you can always go home early, right?

Unfortunately, withdrawals are not always linear...you might feel good for a day, then lousy the next.  But each day should get better.

A word of caution:  be CAREFUL: with the xanax.  It is VERY addicting; do not take it more than a few days.  If you think withdrawals from opiates is bad, benzo's like xanax is a whole different ballgame.  Detoxing from opiates is unpleasant, but not life threatening.  Detoxing from a benzodiazepene addiction (xanax, ativan, valium, clonopin, etc) can be fatal, so it has to be done under a doctor's supervision...plus it takes a lot longer.  

So easy does it with those...just a word to the wise...

Congrats on 4 days!
