I started weening from methadone in August, 2013. I was completely off by February, 2014. My husband quit, cold turkey, in August, 2013. He looked to this site for support and it almost destroyed his life. There are decent people on this site and some really evil people here who take advantage of people at the very lowest point of their lives. Why would they do that?? I, certainly, realize that drug addicts are selfish. It's just part of it. But, the selfish individuals on this site, were not new to the site. They, supposedly, had been in withdrawal for years. Some 4-5 years. A member of this site for that amount of time, fishing for new blood is pretty insidious, don't you think. There are people on here that look, specifically, for married people to prey upon. If anyone can explain this to me, I'm open to listening. As an opiate addict for many, many years, I understand the disfunction. What I don't understand is anyone, in light of the pain that we have inflicted upon ourselves and others, ever actively looking for more people to **** up, under the guise of support. I'm seriously looking for an explanation or, just any thoughts on this.
